It’s that time again, the time when we show you how to take a screenshot on your brand new shiny Android device. Today we’re going to be using the gargantuan known as the Samsung Galaxy Note II. It’s without a doubt a beast of a device and one that you’ll most likely be using with two-hands. With all the cool S-Pen drawing features and the fact that you have a 5.5-inch beauty of a canvas, chances are you’re going to want to know how to take screenshots of those doodle masterpieces.
Whether you’re new to Android, the Samsung Galaxy Note II, or smartphones in general, knowing how to take a screenshot can certainly come in handy. There are actually a couple different ways you can take a screenshot with the Galaxy Note II so let’s dive right in and check them out.
The first method for taking a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy Note II is exactly the same as the Galaxy S III. Simply hold the hardware home button and power button at the same time for 2 seconds and that’s it.
The second method is also one that is familiar to the Galaxy S III and includes activating Samsung’s Motion Controls and using the Palm Swipe To Capture function. This feature allows you to quickly take a screenshot by simply swiping your palm across the screen.
The Galaxy Note II has a third method that involves using the handy dandy S-Pen. To take a screenshot using the S-Pen, simply press and hold the S-Pen button, then press the S-Pen nib to the screen for 2 seconds and that’s it! Unlike the other methods, when you take a screenshot using the S-Pen, you’re given the option to draw on and edit the screenshot before saving it.
