    Hi new to the forum but i have been reading all the S4 stuff before the phone came out to see what everybody thought about the phone.
    I upgraded from a charge to the S4 on verizion and so far love the phone. My only gripe is most of the time how slow the auto rotation is. If it were any slowe i would say it just didnt work. Anybody else have this issue?

    There is one thread here where the OP reports very slow auto rotation. My phone is lighting fast in that regard. How long does it take to rotate your display.

    4-6 seconds average. Sometimes its normal but most of the time it has the delay.

    Sounds like you could have a bad acting app. Try booting in Safe Mode.

    Same problem in safe mode. When I booted back to normal its a little better...maybe two second delay but it varies so its probably coincidence. I try to keep all my computer stuff barebones so there quick. Ive been reading about rooting but im shy to go ahead and try it with out some advise. If I root then I can install a new rom. Any advise on something basic like stock, but streamlined and still keeping the all the features that make the S4 what it is?

    Its gonna sound stupid but im not sure. I was so into playing with everything and getting used to the features i didnt pay attention. I would like to think i would have noticed if it was like that from the get go but im really not sure.

    What I was suggesting takes everything back to the state when you picked up the phone. But there is definitely something wrong with your phone. On mine, the rotation is essentially instantaneous, which I believe is the norm. Ought to be some way to fix this if it isn't a hardware issue. Did you change any of the stock settings, like in the Developer Options?
