Method #2 – Hold the power & tap the home button.

The 2nd method might be easier for you to perform, it’s quite simple, you hold down the power button for a couple seconds and then you press the home button. Make sure you don’t hold down the Power button for too long, or else you will see the Power dialog.

The difference of the 2nd method from the 1st method is that it has a different flash animation and a slightly different shutter tone. Also, a message indicating a successful screenshot will appear at the bottom of the screen. This 2nd method, doesn’t allow you to view your new screenshot on the notification menu. You will have to view your screenshot directly in the Screenshot album in the Gallery app.
