Gang,

My first few minutes with the phone and things are looking good. It feels like a powerful beast. BTW I am running 6.1, I don't have the inspiration yet to move to 6.5 (give me a week to get acquaintedwith the system :p)

However I have run into my first "problem". The screen does not rotate when I move the phone... well, not exactly, as it only rotates when I flip out the keyboard.

I ran the g-sensor calibration tool and the air bubbles are moving, which probably tells me the sensor is indeed working. In the settings tab I have the auto rotate option enabled (ON)

What am I doing wrong?

The screen only auto rotates in programs that support this feature programs like Opera. This feature does not work with Touch Flow. If you want full control of auto rotate you can use a program like Gyrator that will give you full control over your screen plus it adds some other features.

Thanks for the reply (and a thank you is well deserved). I ended up realizing that not all apps are created equal as you well mentioned.

I'll take a look at gyrator definitely.
