You have to press the power and volume down buttons at exactly the same time.

it worked perfectly fine, it gets FHD screenshots 1920*1080, nice feature. Just hold power and down volume for 2 or 3 secs and VIOALA your screen is in your album...

Yes, I should have known better than to trust that a software update would make things better. I should have learned from what used to happen at work!

Re: Screen shot on Xperia Z after 4.2.2. update

I am sorry some of you are having trouble with this, however to expand one something mentioned earlier in this thread you can use the min app. function to capture a screenshot as well via these steps:  Mini App Button (bottom right corner of screen) > Tap the upwards pointing arrow in the bottom left corner > Active Clip.

Re: Screen shot on Xperia Z after 4.2.2. update

It's only like the iPhone, having to use two hands and this was you don't need to take you finger/thumb off the button to tap the screen to select what you want. In my book it's a more logical way to go TumBear. Not ridiculous* at all. If you dislike it that much, get a more basic phone, Motorola Razor, Samsung Toco perhaps?
