    Swipe the side of your palm across the screen from one side to the other.

    Screen shots on the Galaxy Nexus: Press power and volume down at the same time.

    Screen shots on the S3: Press power and home button (physical button) at the same time.

    Both Bunster and Quicksilver have it. I like the idea of the palm swipe, but it can be tricky to pull off without changing the screen.

    The trick to it is to hold the side of your hand on the screen then swipe across. It took me a while to get it right. I take accidental screen shots a lot with this phone.

    That palm swipe is too cool, now I know why I have all those screen shots. This phone really does do some neat stuff.

    Stupid,

    A screenshot can be used to show a developer comrade an error message, prove a high score on Angry Birds, or show us nerds how awesome your array of homescreens is (like the OP of almost every custom ROM thread). "Whoa dude, where do I get that theme?!"

    Warm Regards,

    Mr. Bunster

    The "Power" + "Home" button does NOT work for taking screenshots on my S3. The palm swipe is cool, but it can be a headache when swiping the screen because sometimes that's how you select the next photo in some apps, so now you end up taking a picture that is in motion and therefore only captures half the image. A button option would be better since the picture wouldn't move then. Also in some apps, if you touch the screen (even slightly) it will bring up the magnification buttons on screen, and normally you don't want that to be in you picture either when swiping.

    Does anyone know of a real button combination that actually does work on the S3 for taking screenshots or know of a good screen capturing app that will work in the background?

    Hold the power and home buttons simultaneously for almost a second and you should get the screen shot

    Yeah, you're right Semaj. I just wasn't pressing the two buttons hard enough so it was either bringing up the task manager, or asking if I wanted to power off the phone. Now I can see that this feature works GREAT!

    I just fell even more in love with my S3! I sometimes even kiss it goodnight in the evenings and tuck it in for the night (after doing the same for my wife FIRST of course). ;)

    If you are on ICS, holding down the power and volume down button simultaneously will do it
