Have you found your Galaxy S8 screen rotation can’t work properly? Screen rotation sometimes we need to look at the wider screen display and clear because we can change the position of the screen from vertical to horizontal. However, at times we need precisely when the screen rotation can‘t work, and of course, it makes we feel annoyed. This problem may occur on all smartphones, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S8, and the problem may also occur on this phone.
The problem also affects when we use the camera. When we wanted to take a picture in a horizontal position, but the rotation of the screen can’t work, then it certainly makes us upset, and we can only take a picture in the vertical form only. When you see everything upside down, even the keys in the camera application, then you just confirm yourself that you’re looking at a problem gyroscope/accelerometer.
When people experience these problems on the smartphone, they usually will perform updates to the existing software. However, if the issue is with the software bugs, then you need an update to fix it. Also, you can also perform a hard reset on your phone because it is the fastest way you can do to fix it. Before you get to the final this way, make sure what else can you check out.
