      It depends on your model. It is quite hard to make a screenshot with most mobile phones and sometimes you need to root your mobile device, but for some other models it works pressing your power button and the menu/home and the power button at the same time. This strategy is supposed to work for sure with for example Samsung Galaxy S2, LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus 3D and HTC Cha Cha.
