  1. I have a Samsung Galaxy S6. I was having trouble with the screen not rotating. I googled it, and discovered others had the same problem. The solution is ultra simple. Swipe downward from the top of the screen. This is called, ‘pulling down the shade’. There you will see the ‘Quick Set’ buttons. When the ‘Auto Rotate’ button is off it shows ‘Portrait’ instead, meaning the portrait view is turned on. Quick fix!
