  1. How about the sound? Can I deactivate it? How?

  2. i want to screenshot the notification area. how can i do that?

    • To take a screenshot of the notification area simply pull it down so it is visible on the screen before doing the button combination.

      • I want to do that too, I need to screenshot the notification area but when I activate the power button this area disappears :/

  3. no need to push two button….just simply push the power button for a few second then push the “take screenshot” button…

  4. I’ll point out that unlike the iPhone, you have to push both the power button and the volume down button ‘at the same time’. While on the iPhone you can hold down one than the other. Screwed me up for a few tries…
