Galaxy Core: How Do I use and control motions of my device?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

Control Motions

Simple motions allow easy control of the device.

Before using motions, make sure the motion feature is activated. On the Home screen, tap Apps → Settings → Motions and gestures, and then drag the Motions and gestures switch to the right.

NOTE: Excessive shaking or impact to the device may result in unintended inputs. Control motions properly.

Rotating the Screen

Many applications allow display in either portrait or landscape orientation. Rotating the device causes the display to automatically adjust to fit the new screen orientation.


To prevent the display from rotating automatically, open the notifications panel and deselect Screen rotation.


• Some applications do not allow screen rotation.

• Some applications display a different screen depending on the orientation. The calculator turns into a scientific calculator when rotated to landscape.

Picking Up

When you pick up the device after it has been idle for some time or when the screen has turned off, it vibrates if you have missed calls or new messages.


Turning Over

Turn over the device to mute ringtone or pause media playback (when using the speaker).
