Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge comes with an enormous 2560×1440 displays, so wouldn’t be a pity not to enjoy it as much as possible? You might first think you will never take screenshot on your Galaxy S6 Edge, but you might be wrong. Your screenshots could take up as much as 4MB a piece and you’ll be totally surprised by their clarity.

If you need to share something important with your friends through MMS or social networks, to post an email or a message to social media, there is no better option as this one. You are free to send text-based messages and emails all day long, but if you really want to show someone what you’re seeing on your phone, then a picture is worth a thousand words.

For those new into this, it’s time to recap the two methods of capturing an image of your phone’s screen:

How to Capture a Screenshot on Galaxy S6 Edge by using the Home button and the Power button:

  1. Prepare the screen that you want to capture;
  2. Sfter that, you have to press and hold the Power button and the Home button at the same time; we know that it is not an easy thing to do on a large display such as GS6 Edge with its super-thin side bezels, but we can assure you of the fact that it works.
  3. You will hear a shutter sound if you didn’t turn off the notification sound on your Galaxy S6 smartphone.

How to Capture a Screenshot on Galaxy S6 Edge by moving palm over the screen:

Some might find this method as being easier than gripping your large phone to use the button combination shortcut that we have told you about. It is up to you to decide!

  1. Just as we have told you before, the first thing that you must do is to prepare the screen of your Galaxy S6 Edge device;
  2. After that, just swipe it across the display in either direction (left-to-right or right-to-left.);
  3. Just as before, you’ll hear the screenshot sound and you’ll also see a brief on-screen animation.

Do you know what happen then with the screenshots taken on Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge? They are automatically saved in the Pictures folder in the storage. Unlike we were used to see in previous generations of Galaxy S phones (find out more from the guide on How to Take a Screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S5), the handset that we are talking about today will not pop out the image for editing. So, after taking the screenshot on it, you must go to Gallery app or Photos app to edit it as you want!

The story is similar in case of being the owner of the regular Galaxy S6 version and here we have a detailed tutorial for you as well.
