Auto-rotate Screen

By default, the screen orientation automatically changes when the phone is rotated.

To disable automatic screen orientation:

  1. Tap home key > all apps icon > settings app icon Settings.
  2. Tap Display, gestures & buttons.
  3. Clear the Auto rotate screen option and tap back key.


  • Not all application screens support automatic rotation. The screen orientation automatically changes to landscape mode when you turn the phone sideways.
  • The TalkBack accessibility feature works best if you turn off auto-rotate. For details, see Navigate Your Phone with TalkBack.
