Stop Auto Rotate Screen on Galaxy Note8
When switching between viewing a panoramic photo or reading a listicle, the Note8 has a built-in feature that automatically rotates your screen to adjust to your needs. Auto Rotate uses an internal sensor to detect which way your phone is rotating and then adjusts your screen accordingly. The feature is turned on by default but can be adjusted at any time, if you wish.
The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
OK, sometimes you just want to get a better look at that photo without your phone tilting. No worries. While Auto Rotate is enabled by default, you can always turn it off.
To open the Notification Panel, swipe down from the top of the screen.
To turn off the rotation, touch Auto rotate.
Depending on the screen orientation when touching Auto rotate, the icon changes the screen to either Landscape or Portrait.
