Re: Accelerometer stops working

Thanks for the info.

I'm glad that the Nougat Update will fix it. For now I use the workaround with disabling Google location history.

Webwude - We did read, some of us are still having problems like myself after having did the supposed fix. Chill...

Gyroscoop

My Gyroscoop constantly stops working causing my screen to get stuck and not rotate. If I reset my phone it's over for a couple of minutes. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this problem. My phone is only one month old and I'm not very pleased with this! Thanks in advance!

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Same here. Too bad because I've always had Sony phones without problems. Now I have bought the most expensive one and it's very disappointing. Makes you not want to buy one again. How do I sign up for "NOUGAT" like NC_knet..?

@creepwood: it works definitely, tried it with four devices. Check again.

Webwude. When you say it works, you really mean "it works for you". Doesn't work for me. And besides, stopping no one service to gain abother is still not working.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

@creepwood OK, it works for my device, a friend, a colleague and his wife. Support recommended it as well. If it does not work for you you might double-check or reset or whatever.
I didn't get your last sentence BTW.
