Taking Screenshot on new updates of Sony Xperia Smartphones with Android OS ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich)

The latest software updates for most Sony Ericsson Xperia Smartphones is out, such devices like Xperia Sola, Xperia U and Xperia Go, which has a current update of Android OS ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich). There are lot of changes including UI and features of the phone.
For example is the taking of screenshots, which is a useful tool for presentation and for Android Software Developers. Before, on Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread, by just hold press of the Power button, it will give you an option to take screenshot.
On the current update of Android OS ICS, for example in Sony Xperia Sola with (6.1.B.1.10) firmware, the taking of screenshot has changed.
You need to hold press the Power button and Volume Down Key at the same time. In that way, you can take a screenshot on the current screen of Sony Xperia Smartphone.
In my opinion, I find it difficult to managed on hold press of both buttons at same time, rather by just holding the Power button until the option of Take Screenshot prompt on the screen. Well just my opinion. 😀
(Note: Tested on Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V, Xperia P, Xperia Go, Xperia U and Sony Xperia Sola, it may work also on other Sony Xperia Smartphones, but still I’m not sure about it. Just see for yourself, if you own one.)
Cheers! We hope this tip helps you out! And kindly drop a comment. 😀
