On my old tablet I could take a picture of me screen simply by pressing the previous app button, but this does not work on my Xperia. What's the best way of taking screenshots with this device?

Push and hold the power button. On the menu to turn it off there is a button to take a screenshot.

I prefer the mini app.
Tap the Recent Apps softkey and you should find it.

I tried that, but for some reason it would crop away the edges so I never had a full screenshot
