    Hi. My phone is always in landscape orientation in the lock screen mode. Can't get it to go to portrait.

    Tried soft reboot, device management etc.

    Don't want to do anything drastic, only happened after the last update.

    Can it be easily fixed, i.e., update reinstall, or just wait until the next one?

    Thanks.

    Go to lock screen then AOD tap and you'll see to keep in portrait or landscape..

    I know this thread is old, but it kind of pertains to my question. Would it be that hard to have it where the AOD rotates to however you put it down? I would love that functionality.

    Yeah would be nice to have it automatically do that but no option
