For Developers:

Using Android Studio:

You can use Android Studio to capture Screen Shot with device Frame for all Nexus Devices and for other devices as Generic Devices and for Android Wearable Devices too.

Press Alt+6 keyboard shortcut for Android, select camera option on the top left corner. Then Select the options available as per needs and click save.

One can also capture video from your device with the Screen Record option, just click capture and add some Bit rate (higher the bit rate will be higher the video quality) by default is 4 Mbps and Start Recording, Interact with the App and once done, click the Stop Recording. Unluckily device frame is not added to the video.
