    Just got Note 5 running 7.0 from Asurion to replace my Note 3. Works great but I tried watching a Video and Screen Rotates Upside down in Landscape mode on its own and i have to move it to get it normal. Anyone see this Before? Any Solutions? Thanks in Advance!

    If I'm watching a video in landscape mode, if I tilt the phone in the opposite direction, it will flip the video to the opposite landscape mode. Basically, with my N5, I can view anything from three sides... portrait mode or the two landscape modes. It all depends how I have the phone tilted.

    Thank you for the Response. I barely move it and it Flips. Seems Really Sensitive in Landscape Mode. Would you happen to know if there is a way to adjust the Sensor Sensitivity?

    Not that I am aware of. Mine doesn't seem to be that sensitive but it can be annoying when my display flips unintentionally but that is usually because I moved it.

    don't have that problem either. go into settings and see if landscape is selected.
