In this tutorial, we will show you how you can capture your screen. Thanks to TouchWiz, there are multiple methods to do this. You can choose whatever you find easy and start using that. Samsung loves phablets, and so do we. The bigger screen size allows you to use your device a lot more efficiently, however, many disagree with this. In this day and age, rather than sending links to information, we send screenshots of the desired data. It is not only easy but more worthwhile. Samsung believes in similarity over all it’s phones. It’s an experience which Samsung tries to sell and staying true to that vision, if you were using a Samsung phone with the same Android version, the process will remain widely the same.

On Galaxy smartphones, you have an option to use a separate method along side the button pressing one. This different method, however needs to be activated first before using it. Believe us, when you get to use this feature, you would never go back to buttons again. We will be covering both in detail right below!
