problem with walkman and auto rotating screen

Hi guys!!

Hoping you can help with these problems I'm having as although they're not too serious they are annoying me.
1) my walkman player sometimes (sometimes frequently) stutters when playing a song like it's struggling, despite not having any other apps running most of the time :/ this is the worst gripe for me because I use music playback everyday and love the sound quality.

2) the auto rotate feature of the phone sometimes seems to be deactivated. I have it in quick settings so am able to turn it back on easily, but it's annoying that it would do this, is it a known issue or am I missing a setting somewhere?Slightly frowning Face

Any response is welcome Grinning Face cheers guys and gals Slightly smiling Face!

Calum.

Re: problem with walkman and auto rotating screen

the home launcher will only rotate if the phone its connected to the Dock, otherwise it won't. 

 

Is the music stored on the SD card or internal storage?

This isn't just something with the home screen aha, the feature actually keeps turning off- forcing me to turn it back on.

I'm not sure where the music is stored :/ I mainly use music unlimited for my music and store most offline but can't find where it downloads too :/

It's probably and app acting up

Re: problem with walkman and auto rotating screen

Actually, I've been having problems. My Xperia Z1s after the latest update, won't rotate the screen automatically. And I'm not talking about the Home screen. I'm talking about everything else. Is there a way to fix this.... Or?

Do you have auto rotate enabled?
