    Arrow Screen won't auto-rotate

    Just got an HTC One a few days ago and love it. However, I can't get the screen to rotate no matter what I do. I've tried toggling the 'auto-rotate screen' option on and off and on again. Tried doing a reset. Numerous reboots... When I run G-Sensor calibration, it says 'Calibrating' for a few seconds and then says 'Calibration stopped'. Also tried booting into safe mode and get the same results. Haven't used Android since 2009ish or so, so I'm not too familiar with all the settings and such... is there a setting or switch somewhere that I'm missing? Or does this sound like a hardware issue?

    Contact HTC support, or wherever you got the device from and ask for a replacement.

    I had an issue with the auto-rotate on my new HTC One M8. I thought that the "G sensor" broke because my phone fell a couple of times, but thanks to you I just discovered that the calibration was simply wrong for some reason.

    Anyways I was just writing to tell you that your post (even if it wasn't intended to) really helped me!

    So thanks and good luck!

    I had this problem and it is on the LG Flex. Inside the Settings back menus, there is a feature under the DISPLAY group called HOME SCREEN that you must uncheck that says that the home screen can never rotate. Also there is a button that must be turned on that will then light up as active on the main (first) primary settings screen that has brightness, bluetooth, sound, WiFi, and other options. This primary options screen is the one at the top that is visible when you run your finger from the top to the bottom on your phone.
