  1. My Galaxy S6 doesn’t have the Screen Rotation option in the drop down menu. Would it be under a different setting or is that also a hardware problem?


  2. Mine worked fine forever; had the phone nearly 2 years now. Last update removed the setting for turning rotation on and off. There is no way I can turn it on. Phone will not rotate for any app that I’ve found. Which totally effing sux.

  3. I am the same as you both mine was fine then you HAVE TO UPDATE or your phone lags badly . Now my auto rotate has completely gone why mess with something that is not broken.
