    Verizon S7 seems to be unable to auto rotate pictures in gallery. Auto rotate is on in settings & apps that are allowed to auto rotate are doing so. Anyone else having this issue?

    Thanks!!

    Is your auto rotate still enabled? When you're in the camera app do the icons rotate?

    Auto rotate is enable. The icons do not rotate while in the app.

    Well, multiple reboots, 4 calls to Samsung, and a full factory restore and the problem is still there. Unfortunately, back goes the phone. Seems like a lot of bugs/problems in this first batch of phones!

    I had exactly this issue and have resolved it thankfully as it was doing my head in! I discovered that the issue would go away if I launched Gallery from within apps. It then dawned on my that I use a launcher (power toggles) on my home page and had imported the toolbar from my previous phone (Galaxy S5) along with existing icons for my most used apps including Gallery. I went into Power Toggles and deleted the old Gallery icon (from the toolbar/folder thing) and created a new one for Gallery and after this when I launch Gallery from my home page toolbar it now rotates the photos as it should. I use Power Toggles but this solution could apply to other apps launchers/toolbars if you import them from a previous device.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Are you using Nova launcher? I am and I did import it over via Samsung Smart Switch. Perhaps this is what caused the issue.
    Question : where is power toggles located?
    Thanks

    Right way to troubleshoot your issue, is to do a full factory restore and add no 3rd party apps and fool with no settings.. Now, check and see if your auto rotate is still an issue. My guess it will not be. Now, add your apps back one at a time until you find the 3rd party app that is causing the auto rotate issue. Once you find the app causing the problem, uninstall that app.

    Power Toggles is just one of a myriad of launchers/toolbar apps. If you use it it will be with all the other apps. Root cause of issue appears to be using settings for Gallery icon imported from another device. I expect your issue is Nova related. Try un-installing and using stock Galley icon, etc.

    Pull down the menu at the top of the home screen and scroll left to Auto Rotate.
    Make sure Auto Rotate is on.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Was driving me nuts. No idea how long it would have taken me to find this. Your hope came true!

    Thank you! Been having this issue for months and just decided to dig into the issue when I came across your post.

    Nova Launcher was my culprit and I also restored my settings that I backed up from my S4 onto my S7 which caused the issue.

    Unfortunately none of these suggestions have worked for me. This issue is the only real problem I have with the phone and it's pretty annoying.

    I used Samsung's transfer app and I used Nova Launcher. I have launched the Gallery from the app draw and still nada.

    Fantastic! Well spotted Gary...I don't think that I would have found this in a million years. I deleted the Gallery icon from my launcher (Action Launcher) and re-added it, and, hey presto, auto-rotate in the Gallery is working again!

    Many thanks for posting this solution.

    Cannot find an auto rotate or portrait lock button anywhere. Looked in Settings under Display and also Gallery. Any suggestions?

    @Gary Bowen - thanks a ton for your suggestion!!! I had been wrestling with this for a long time. Since I'm also using a different launcher (Apex), it was a simple matter of removing the gallery icon from my home screen, then adding it back. Not sure why this works to reset it (data cache?), but super glad that you posted your recommendation.

    Thanks Gary. I use Launcher8 and the default Gallery tile had this same problem. When I remapped the app to the tile, or run it from the app list, it rotates correctly. Thanks for pointing this out.
