I received my sprint s6 edge today and have noticed that the screen will randomly go to landscape while browsing without any or very little movement and then it will get stuck in landscape. The only way to get it back to portrait is to return to the homescreen or another screen that forces portrait view.

Anyone else experiencimg this issue?

It's very odd I seem to be the only person with this problem. I've never had this issue on a phone before. I've noticed it seems to get stuck in landscape most often when using the stock browser, but it does happen with other apps.

Nope .well yes if i force it to like when im in the youtube app for example i can swtich it there by pressing the button. I guess im loving the phone soo much right now that im overlooking the auto rotation as something minor .i hope they push an update to fix it .im still trying to search for a solution myself

Mine is totally stuck as well, ie thats broken. Anyone got any ideas on this, I am seeing more and more people on various forums with the issue.

At this point its back to AT&T for me....

it only rotates within the APP. To obtain full rotation you have to have a 3rd party app like NOVA and enable screen orientation within the settings.

Mine just started doing this today too. Noticed it first with my camera app symbols being upside down and all my pictures coming out upside down too. Then realized my screen rotation isn't working.

Hopefully this is just a software thing and they can push out a quick update.

Just realized that my screen rotation was normal before the update. I took a couple pictures at some point before the update and those are the only ones not upside down.

Has everyone with an issue installed the update? Anyone notice if it started afterwards?
