For Android 2.3 version and below:

With no built-in screenshot functionality, the Android 2.3 and below versions phones need to use a third-party application like No Root Screenshot It. This app needs to be installed on the phone to enable screenshots. Devices like Samsung phones however already have these features. But it varies from phone to phone, and not all Samsung devices with the Android 2.3 or below versions support these features.
