On many android phones, you can find multiple ways of capturing screenshots. For instance with Samsung Galaxy S6 and many Galaxy phones:
1. Place your hand vertically over the screen.
2. Do not go all karate-chopping instead simply swipe your hand across the screen.
3. You may see snapshot flying across the screen and hear a shutter sound.
4. Try few times to master (or simply use Power and Home button technique).
