Take a screenshot on the LG G3: hardware method
Like all Android smartphones and tablets, the LG G3 lets you take a screenshot using the hardware keys. The button configuration for taking a screenshot on the LG G3 is the same as on most other Android smartphones, but it might feel a little different because the keys are on the back of the device, a supposedly more ergonomic location.
Simply press the power button (middle key) and volume down button (below the power button), to activate screen capture, and you'll see a small animation on the screen and hear a sound to confirm that the screenshot has been taken.
The image will be saved to your gallery app under Screenshots and will also show up in your notification shade.
Tip: To make it easier to make a screenshot with the hardware keys, hold the smartphone with both hands and put one index finger on the power button, and the other index finger on the volume down key. Press both down until you see the animation.
Take a screenshot on the LG G3: software method
The other method for taking a screenshot with your LG G3 is to use the device's software, namely QMemo+.
To use QMemo+ to take a screenshot, go to Settings > Display > Home touch buttons > Button combination. In the top half of the screen, drag the QMemo+ icon onto the Home touch buttons bar in the illustration. Now, when you open QMemo+ using its Home touch button, it will take a screenshot, which you can draw over or save at your leisure.
