Uhm - Pressing & Holding both Power + Volume Down is a pretty deliberate action - It's not likely to be accidental... Just don't press that combination & problem solved lol 😂 🐧

No it's not just a deliberate action you **bleep** moron, the power and volume buttons are on each side and everyone holds their phone by the sides so it's that easy to press that combo by mistake. No wonder there's a ton of threads of people asking how to disable this annoying feature. Ok, so shut the **bleep** up.

I have tried to consciously avoid it, but it still happens accidentally!

I dont want to sound like Steve Jobs but you're holding it wrong. All kidding aside you have to force your body into new muscle memory. I too have never accidentally taken a screen shot with any of my devices.

I have this same problem accidental screenshots all the ******* time. I'm a tech guru too. I think it has to do with the size of the s10+ for me. I've never had this problem on any other phone. It's so large I have to slide my hand to reach the top buttons and I end up losing some grip control. You can't hold it from the bottom like a normal phone.
