    I just got the note 4 yesterday. so far I'm liking how feels and looks. What I'm not liking is the photo and the video. There's been a problem for years when it comes to video's. If you record a video in portrait and then open it up through your desktop. The video will play in landscape. I was really hoping they fix this through the years. Now I notice the photo does the same thing. take in portrait and then view on your desktop. it will show in landscape very disappointed..

    There has been a big push over recent years for video to be shot in landscape. I didn't know that was happening to photos, that's kinda odd.

    I have not noticed that with any of my photos, but I tend to take most shots in landscape mode anyway.

    The Note 4 is developed with HD display in mind. Most monitors/HD TVs are going to display in a landscape view by default anyway.

    Portrait shots are the less common format for wide screen viewing, not landscape.

    The problem is not in how the phone is displaying the videos, it is in how you're framing your shots.

    I have not noticed the problem with pictures but I will have to experiment with it. Video should never be shot in portrait. That's why it turns it landscape. Your HDTV or your computer monitor isn't tall, it's wide. Why shoot a video in the opposite format? It's painful to watch a video shot in portrait mode.

    Thanks guys. I had a HTC Droid Dna before. With this phone the photos were good and the video's were screwed up. Heck I took a lot of portrait photos with that phone. I understand all the new monitor/HD TVs format. but, you should be able to take vid or pics in any orientation you want and then view on your computer or tv. If they didn't want pictures taken in portrait, they should disable that, right? but the wouldn't. I think it's still broke

    So I took a few photos in portrait and opened them on my computer. They are all in portrait on the computer as well. Landscape is in landscape and portrait is in portrait. I can't seem to replicate your issue. What are you using to open the photos?

    The photos are fantastic but what I find annoying is the delay in focusing. I've lost great shots because of it.

    I have not had that problem with photos. The ones I take in portrait show up as such and same for landscape. Videos I always shoot in landscape as they do view better in that mode.

    Click the Edit icon in the photo. You will have two options: Rotate Right and Rotate Left. I haven't tried it in a video.

    Sounds like you have auto rotate turned off and the camera opens in landscape, so it doesn't rotate to portrait.

    As for the pictures on your computer, those are easy to rotate.

    I guess this is more do with the fact that they rotate when you open them thru the computer. yes I know you can rotate them back. that's not the point. I notice last night that when I posted a bunch on Facebook they did not rotate, they were orientated correctly. For what good it's going to do. I'm going to call this one in.
