How to Take Screenshots with Your Android Device

The files are big and high quality (the resolution of files is the one of our Android device's screen). In the case of my phone, the resolution of screenshots is 1280x720, so the files are really big and high quality.

    One of these apps is, for instance, You do not have permission to view the full content of this post. Log in or register now. which also lets you control your device through your computer browser.
