Problem with inability to rotate screen on A51

(Topic created on: 20-07-2021 12:06 AM)

My Galaxy A51 is working fine when I'm viewing its screen in the normal portrait viewing position. However, sometimes I want to turn the phone 90º and view the screen in landscape mode. With other (non Samsung) phones I have an option to switch the screen around and change between portrait & landscape. I can't seem to find a similar setting on the A51.

Can anyone help?

Hey @WobSleptHere , sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

 

It seems that this function is called Portrait on some phone models, can you try this and let me know if that works?

  1. Swipe down on the Status bar (at the top) twice to expand the quick settings menu. The image below is an example.
  2. Tap 'Auto rotate' or 'Portrait'.

Pull your notification bar down from the top auto-rotate and if you press and hold that icon it will give you more optionsScreenshot_20210720-020910_Samsung Members.jpg

Your pic show the device in portrait mode which is the default, but what I am trying to do is to view the screen in landscape mode. My question is what do I have to do do view the screen in landscape (rotated) mode?

In lanscape mode the display looks like this:

so what is the setting to enable me to view the screen in landscape mode with the text the correct way up for viewing? Other (non-Samsung) phones I have provide a setting called Auto-rotate screen which enables me to work in landscape mode but I cannot find a similar setting for my Galaxy A51.

Yes, I've had non-Samsung Android devices for many years and never experienced this problem. As a matter of interest I also have a Galaxy S6 Tab LTE which has a similar problem. Being a tablet, by default the display runs in landscape mode. In this case I cannot switch it into portrait and, like my A51, I cannot locate an Auto-rotate screen (or similar) setting to switch the display between portrait & landscape. All my other non-Samsung devices have always had this ability.
