It should only take a few minutes to answer five quick questions. Just click the Launch survey button at the end of your visit to begin.
A popular question that keeps coming back is how to take a screenshot. How to do this can differ between models and firmware version but there are two different methods used in Xperia devices.
Press and hold the on/off button. This will bring up the options window you see below. Tap Take screenshot to capture your screen. This can be done while in any application or menu of the phone.
Press and hold both on/off and volume down (-) key at the same time for about 2 seconds and the phone will take a screenshot of the present screen.
After you’ve taken a screenshot you’ll see this icon in the top left corner of your notification bar. (Goes for both method 1 and 2)
Drop down the notification bar and you will be able to instantly share your screenshot to any of your supported applications by pressing the share button.
All screenshots you’ve taken will be saved so you can view them later in the album application.
