It is fortunately too simple to capture screenshot on Galaxy devices especially Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, its just hitting pair of buttons or swiping across your screen.

If you don’t mind using your whole hand, you can swipe from the right side to left to capture a shot. You should be slow and deliberate in your gesture, however.
