  2. It works, you just have to start holding both buttons at the exact same time, I mean start holding them at the exact same time literally! I think that’s the point that is failed to be stressed.

  6. Yes. It works. It would be better if an option is given on the screen itself.

  7. It doesn’t work.

    Did you even try this?

    • Works as it’s suppose to. Both on my Nexus 5 and my old Nexus S.
      Make sure it’s [Volume down] and [Power] you are pressing at the same time.
