  1. So whenever I take a screenshot, the above drop down notification banner is always in the screenshot from hitting the lower volume button – screen shot takes just fine no problem, but I’ve had 3 people try it and we can’t get it without it, any thoughts? Merci!

  2. Knows most of all says:

    The volume DOWN and power button at the same time.

  3. Been looking for this since I replaced my Galaxy. Glad I didn’t have to download an app for that. Thanks for the info!
