Just got the A12 update yesterday and noticed that my phone no longer rotates 360 degrees and I can't find any way to re-enable this. Did they take that option out with the new "smart rotation"?

Yep. Interesting, but personally unconcerning. On more than one occasion I unintentionally rotated devices 180 degrees when returning to portrait. Less likely with A12 mindset.

That said, I have occationally used inverted charging when device is in a stand. Suppose there are other use cases. Not sure why Google felt compelled to restrict choice.
