    Hate the new update….No screenshot button, and the tips on doing it with the power/volume button only worked 2 times, now doesn’t! So disappointed in this! Ready to sell and find something different!

      You could also try press and hold both the power and home buttons until the shutter sounds. It works.

    The update seems to be a breakthrough but there are things that I noticed to be missing. Like the developer’s option in the settings. One motion or gesture “Tap To Top” is also missing. These two are major set up options that I think are not included in the new update (4.2.2) which I enjoyed much when my device was still running in 4.1.2. Just updated my device last week Over the air and I am still exploring my Grand with the new android OS. I think I’d like to experience 4.1.2 one more time before I could say the upgrade is a total mind blower. I also noticed that there wasnt any improvement on Battery consumption. Should there be? I’d appreciate it if someone adds up some instructions how to better use my Grand with 4.2.2. Thanks.
