Display Auto rotate too sensitive?

    I don't know if its just me, but I found the auto rotate function extremely sensitive on the phone.

    While I am watching you tube videos, if I tilt the phone slightly the phone changes the viewing to portrait or landscape (or vice versa), its a bit more sensitive than my old note 3.

    Anyone else get this?

    I also noticed that. Comparing to my OPO there is definitely a difference. Previously I had auto rotate ON all the time and now i have to turn it OFF sometimes. (when reading something for example). But probably we just have to get used to it. IDK.

    I don't find it any more sensitive than other phones. I personally always use portrait mode since VLC enables auto rotate by default regardless of what mode the phone is in, and on the YouTube app I just tap the little rectangle in the corner to go full screen. This are the only two apps I use to watch video in landscape, and with auto rotate on any phone I find it rotating when I don't want to.

    Yes, I do find the auto-rotate much more sensitive than the OPO that I am upgrading from.

    Yep, it's very sensitive. I resorted to just locking portrait via notification menu when I don't want it to flip to landscape. Sensitivity option would be nice, though not sure how difficult that would be for OnePlus to implement.

    Yes. It's actually my only gripe with the OP5. I also have a s8+ and I love the OP5. The only thing that bothers me is how sensitive the auto rotation is. Sometimes the phone goes into landscaping when you lay it down flat which makes absolutely no sense.

    Yet when resting the phone on a flat surface and pulling it up from a different angle he ignores it... On YouTube at least, I have yet to try this on different apps

    Same here. Upgraded from OP One to OP5. The One was way less sensitive to autorotation. Would love to adjust OP5's behavior.

    Yes, waaaay too sensitive. Never had this problem with OPO or any other Android I own currently: Nexus 4, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 7, Asus ZenPhone 2.

    Sensitivity controls would be great but even lowering sensitivity to be at par with Nexus/Pixel devices would be a great start.

    As a side note - super happy with my OP5!

    Agreed. It is too sensitive. Compared to my old S7 there is huge difference. There should be a way to adjust it.
