    I keep my auto-rotation turned off, because I find that I move my phone around often; and the auto-rotate feature just gets in the way of my productivity. I suppose if you are reading a big article or need a bigger view of something, auto-rotation would be an asset. Also for video watching.

    I think the main benefit for landscape orientation on homescreens is if you use the phone in landscape orientation most of the time. That way, it won't keep reverting to portrait each time you exit an app to the homescreen.

    Well, I'm using a 3rd party launcher (Action Launcher 3 https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...cher.playstore) and even though I have auto rotation enabled I don't see any change on the Home screen.
    Not sure I'd have much use for it anyway; I do all of my typing in landscape and that works fine, along with viewing pictures/videos, and that's all that really matters to me.

    Yeah I see what everyone means here though honestly it can get in the way of using the phone though sometimes. I think I'm just going to turn it off though.

    I agree with you. On a phone, it's rare that I need to look at the homescreen in landscape. It's more important on a tablet, but the Google Now Launcher has been able to auto-rotate homescreens on tablets for a while now.
