All you need to do is hold the power button and home button simultaneously for a second or two, and wait for the confirmation. The screen will flash, and you will here a image capture sound, followed by “Saving Screenshot” appearing at the top of the screen in the notification bar. You can then access the screenshot from the notification menu, or in the gallery, in the “screenshots” folder.

To use this method, you need to first make sure that the Palm Motion setting is enabled on your device. To do this, go to Apps -> Settings -> Controls -> Palm Motion (enable) -> Capture screen (enable).
