Hello,

I have strange issue with my Xperia Z. I used to use many android based phones, so i believe Z's behaviour is incorrect. How it works - i.e. I have my Z laying on the table, when I launch some app supporting screen rotation i.e. browser, mail etc., it automatically rotates to landscape mode. When it's in landscape mode and I am lifting it up (keeping the device in portrait position) it doesn't switch into portrait mode at all or it's very very delayed. I haven't found any calibration settings in the software, so have no idea what I can do in order to let the screen rotate smoothly after physical position change.

Quick update - both orientation sensor in portrait mode and gyroscope are giving wired results. Can it be calibrated somehow?


Any advice appreciated!

Best regards,
MCC

I have 4.1.2 and the menu is there - i could calibrate gyroscope, but accelerometer calibration was unsuccessful - Error Code 1.

Anyhow after calibration of gyroscope result is the same - horizontal orientation sensor is shifted to the right ;( PLS see attached screenshot.

Best regards,
MCC

I just tried it and it's good on my phone,i don't know if it's a hardware issue.
You try another firmware maybe it's a software problem and maybe if you can update to 4.2.2
