If you dont root the device, then tPacketCapture app can be used (it starts a VPN service on top since only root user can access the captures), it has a lot of limitations such as DNS traffic can not be captured just to mention one.

If you root the device, then you can run the normal tcpdump binary or any app wrapping the tcpdump binary (shark for root for instance).
