    i've downloaded an app called sensor kinetics, and under gyroscope it says not available on this device, is this a hardware problem or software problem?

    Try a reboot. Still broken? Factory reset, yes will get rid of everything. Still broken? Hardware issue.

    download anothe r app to confirm it's not just that app and a possible compatibility issue, something like Androsensor.

    @Iseek1 what values should i be looking at in the androsensor app? is gyro not the same as accelerometer is it?

    in androsensor, it only shows accelerometer, and in sensor kinetics it shows accelerometer aswell as gyroscope (which says "not available on this device")

    [Edit]
    ok i did a soft reset, the gyro now shows, but its abit off. is there a way to calibrate this?

    Turn off/toggle the rotation lock...
    Swipe down from top and click settings thing then rotation lock

    Any app that uses hardware stuff like the camera or gyroscope needs a reboot before opening.

    Gyroscope should show as the 5th item down in AndroSensor and good to see you have your problem sorted out!

    Hello people,

    I just got my OnePlus One and first thing I did was to download Real Racing 3.

    The first thing I realised was that the game dosen't have a gyroscope calibration option like it used to in well ... each and every other android phone I used before (LG G2, Note 2, HTC One M7 and M8)

    And as you'd expect ... yes, it's not working properly, for my car to drive straight I have to keep my phone tilted to the left about 20 degrees.
    It's annoying really ... is there a way to fix that? Nope, reinstalling, rebooting didn't work :(

    Thank you guys!
