Samsung Galaxy S7: How To Take A Screenshot

Taking a screenshot on a Samsung Galaxy and other Samsung phones (which run Android 4.0 or higher) is extremely simple and quick.  You don’t need to root your phone or modify it in any way.

All you need to do is:

  • Unlock your phone.
  • Press the power button (the one that is on the right edge of the phone) and the home button simultaneously. Wait until you hear the shutter sound and see the shutter animation.

  • Note that a Samsung Galaxy S7 has a high-resolution display and its screenshots are really huge and heavy. An example screenshot from my S7 has the size of 3.50 MB and the resolution of 1440x2560.
