Auto rotate lock screen

Hi

 

I don't know where is it just me or others got this issue

I have my auto rotate on (check)

when my phone was on landscape, when ever it goes into sleep (stand by) and I wake it up, it will be in lockscreen landscape mode  for few secs, then goes back to portrait mode.

 

is it possible to have it stay without it going back to portrait? as I at times use it on my magnetic dock to charge and use at the same time.

I assume it can goes into landscape thou is say it can't unless 3rd party apps ( by others)

 

pls advice

Re: Auto rotate lock screen

Maybe you can use this apps Adaptive Rotation Lock. Its free in google play and very neat. So many options u can even use ur z ultra upside down. I used it the first time got my z ultra. It can lock your Prepared orientation.

Re: Auto rotate lock screen

Well, yeah ur right with that. Im prepared to use this z ultra in landscape mode more than in portrait mode so we have the same opinion. But this phone really lacks the option to make it lock to the orientation u want, so yeah, so sad about it that we should rely to 3rd party apps.

Re: Auto rotate lock screen

I found your "solution" some days ago. Thus I loaded "Rotation Lock Adaptive" (paid version) to my Experia Z Ultra model number C 6833, build number 14.1.B.1.532

 

I used the App option "Force Auto" and selected "Auto Start". The App basically seemed to function, but I had the impression that the Smartphone used more battery power than usual. I switched off the device by once pushing the appropriate hardware button. After several minutes, I tried to switch the screen to ON by again pushing the hardware button. But I found out that the system did no longer run. I had to activate a new start of the unit, and I had to enter again the SIM code.

 

I then checked the battery usage of the unit, and found out that during the presumed "dark screen" period, the unit used more than 20 % of the battery capacity! I then deactivated the "Rotation Lock Adaptive" application by the appropriate option. It then was again possible to switch off the Smartphone to "dark screen" as usual.

 

I deleted the App "Rotation Lock Adaptive" from the device. As a result, the device got unstable!!!  I encountered the same effects as decribed at the thread "Xperia Z Ultra: screen problems after reset / power on - blank display".

 

I had to activate a factory reset. Thus I was loosing several data which were not saved by backups done via PC Compagnion.

 

My question: Did anyone successfully use "Rotation Lock Adaptive" on an actual version of Experia Z Ultra? For my part, I will not attempt to load that App again to my device.

Re: Auto rotate lock screen

Personally I've found Ultimate Rotation Control app more useful http://lnkfy.com/DCc

It even has separated setting for lock screen behavior.
