How to take screenshot on HTC One X?

HTC Method
Press and hold Power button and then press Home button. The screenshot will be added to DCIM folder then.

Android 4.0 ICS Method
Press Power button and Volume Down button at the same time. The screenshot will be added to Pictures/Screenshots folder then.

Both methods store screenshot in PNG lossless format. So no worry about picture quality. Just choose the combo keys that you prefer.


  1. lol, it’s written in the manual liao…fact : most of the new users don’t read the manual, but they actually don’t know anything about their new phone…instead ,they google it..haha

  2. Android 4 = screenshots finally! Huzzah!
    Glad it doesn’t auto-correct-fail like an iThing though:)

    And yes, Power+Home on my HTC Incredible S is the way to go.
    Quick press is screenshot of current; press and hold for a little longer to get a choice of which running app you wish to take a screenshot. Naughty but nice!


  3. [Power-volume down] doesn’t work for me, [power-home] does. So I can only take screenshots into my camera folder. If I hold [power-volume down], the phone takes a crap and shuts down, with an error message about unexpected shutdown at restart.
