How to take a screenshot on the Motorola Droid Turbo 2

Sometimes to get the point across or really capture a moment in time from social media, what you need is a screenshot. For the most part these are easy to grab once you know how to do it, but considering that it isn't always a piece of cake to figure out how each phone takes screenshots. In recent years we've seen button combos, ability to tweak how you take screenshots in settings, specific swipes, and even voice commands. Here's how to grab a screenshot on the Droid Turbo 2.

The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 went with an easy and well known method for grabbing screenshots. By which we mean, that it's the same method they used for the last year's Droid Turbo.

They've made it super simple, which is refreshing in a world filled with tons of options. All you'll need to do is press the power button and the volume down button at the same time. After a moment or two, you'll see an animation showing you briefly what you just took a screenshot of. If you take a look in your notifications, you'll have the ability to automatically share the photo, or by tapping it you can take a closer look. You also have the option of opening up your gallery, and proceeding to the 'Screenshot' folder, where it will be saved for your perusal.
