How to take a screenshot on the HTC One X+, or other HTC Android device

HTC One X+ - and HTC One X

From time to time you’ll want to share your screen with others. It’s normal. And if you want to grab a screenshot on your HTC One X or One X+ then you’ve got a couple of options. Thankfully both of them are super easy. Here’s how to take a screenshot on the One X or One X+ (or most HTC phones).

Let’s start with the standard Android method:

  • Press and hold the power button and the volume down button simultaneously

The power button is up top and the volume rocker is on the right spine.

You’ll see an animation, hear an audio cue, and feel a slight vibration to acknowledge that your screen has been successfully captured. The screenshot will pop up in your Notifications bar and you can share it directly from there via your usual options (email, SMS, and whatever social media you use). You will also find the screenshot in your Gallery app in its own folder which is fittingly named Screenshots.

You can also use the HTC method:

  • Press and hold the power button and then press the Home button

The power button is on the top of the phone and the Home button is the middle touch sensitive button at the bottom of the screen.

With this method the screen will flash and you’ll hear a sound to indicate that you’ve captured the screenshot. The screenshot will appear in your standard Gallery app along with your other photos.

Like we said above, these methods will also work for taking a screenshot on an HTC One X, and many other, relatively new, HTC Android phones.
