    Default Can't turn off autorotation

    Hi,

    Auto-rotation is something what is pissing me off. For some reasons, I CAN'T switch it off. Even though 'auto rotate' is off in settings (or alternatively settings > display, gestures & buttons > auto-rotate screen). It is annoying as hell.
    Phone restart did not help (I haven't tried restoring to factory settings yet...).
    Any ideas?

    EDIT:
    reset to factory settings didn't help
    HTC ONE on Android 4.4.2
    Thanks!

    Well that's a new one. And it does this everywhere? I've noticed on my Flex that a couple apps bypass the system rotation settings, not sure if this is a bug or a feature in 4.x that some apps can override.
