What is Smart rotation in Samsung Galaxy S4(GT-I9500)?

Last Update Date : Aug 09. 2018

The Smart rotation feature in Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) uses the front camera to sense when you are looking at your device and keeps your screen from rotating based on your face's orientation. If you are viewing your device in portrait mode and happen to lie back on your couch, the screen remains in portrait mode.

Smart rotation works best under following conditions :


● The device is held steady and upright.

● The device is in well lit conditions but the screen is not in direct light.

● The front camera is not being used by another application.



Smart rotation may not work in the following situations :


● When the front camera fails to detect face and eyes.

● When the source of the light is behind you or when using the device in the dark.

● When you are currently using other gestures, such as Air View.
