    1. When you are on the initial screen, open the phone app
    2. Select the dialing keypad to enter numbers manually.
    3. Next, enter *#0*# on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus smartphone.
    4. The service menu opens. Select "Sensor" and scroll down to the bottom of the next menu.
    You will now see "Magnetic Sensor" and below it a circle with a line and a number behind it. This has the following meaning:

    • Red line with a 0 = The compass sensor must be calibrated
    • Blue line with a 3 = The magnetic sensor is calibrated

    In order to calibrate the compass, the Samsung Galaxy S9 rotates once around all its three axes. Do this until the circle shows a blue line and a 3. Only then is your compass calibrated.

    If you have Edge panels enabled, ensure that you have the "Quick tools" panel enabled. Then open the Quick tools panel and click the Calibrate button.

    Thanks, but I want to to calibrate the gyroscope, not the compass.

    I've disabled edge panels.

    Strange that there is nothing in settings for this. There was on my previous Galaxy S phones.

    Another option is to use the app GPS status https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sim.gpsstatus2
    On the 3 line menu in upper left it has both "Compass calibration" and "Calibrate pitch and roll".

    Have you tried safe mode if it works?
