Samsung Epic 4G :: Home Screen Rotate To Landscape Mode For Keyboard Only

Sep 6, 2010

Home screen used to do landscape immediate and always. Now it doesn't do landscape at all unless I slide the keyboard out and it pops into landscape immediately. Then when I close the keyboard it goes back to portrait even when I'm holding the phone in landscape. Not sure how to fix this, help please.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Can Home Screen Go Into Landscape Mode?

Mar 10, 2010

Ok I first just want to say that this phone is so nice, and I was so scared to get it from everybody on this thread complaining but I don't see why.

-I had no mounting problems.
-Memory is awesome compared to the g1
-I don't see no lag. I think people say this because of the vibrate when touch method samsung has on it.
-I actually like the touchwiz interface over the boring silver android. Messaging is awesome with the picture of the friend you messaging.
-The cube is pointless though, but friends love it.
-It's plastic but it really don't feel cheap at all.
-Battery life isn't too good, but what smartphone battery is? What else do you expect from a phone with that nice of a display screen.
-No reboots
-I haven't had a force close yet, but when I had the g1 i had at least 10 a day.
-Has to be the nicest camera phone since my old n95.
-There was complaints about overlapping objects on the home screen. I love that it can do that.
-My only complaint is the 4 buttons on the home screen. They are just simply pointless.

I feel alot are just being too picky. This has to be the best android phone behind the nexus one. Some questions though...

1.Can the home screen go into landscape mode?
2. Anyway to lower the brightness of the camera flash. It's blinding lol
3.Im trying to install some apps from my g1. (cracked) Most install but some don't. Is this problem because the apps are only for android 1.6 + ?
4. Anyone have any super thin case's? Where did you find them?
5. On the commercial about this phone with the comic artist. He changed the color of the picture with some app. What app is that? Is it pre-installed?
6.Does the phone lag any with a new keyboard installed? I was going to install swype or better keyboard.
7.Is there not any light's to show that the phone is charging, or when you have notifications?
8.This might sound ******ed, but is the screen glass?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Home Screen Orientation To Go Into Landscape Mode?

Feb 19, 2010

I searched for this but couldn't find a solution. Is there anyway to get the home screen and subsequent side screens to go into landscape mode? I've seen some other Android Phones/Tablets doing this and would like to be able to do so. Or does anyone know if this will be an option in the 2.1 update? I heard that the Droid used to do this, and then some update messed it up, but then saw it going into landscape mode on the video they posted today of the Droid running 2.1.

Samsung Moment :: Physical Keyboard Opened In Landscape Mode

Feb 6, 2010

When opening the physical keyboard, the phone first comes out of sleep, and then switches from portrait to landscape. This is typically not too noticeable, but sometimes it takes up to 5 seconds. Is there a way to make it so that opening the keyboard just resumes this phone already in landscape? Also, has anyone figured out a way to get the home screen to respect switching to landscape when rotated, like all well-developed apps do?

Nexus :: Rotate 1 Way / Landscape Works / Rotate Other Way / It Doesn't

Jul 1, 2010

I just bought the Nexus One unlocked for AT&T and really like it. 1 wierd thing is that when I rotate the phone counter clockwise, the screen goes to landscape just fine; but when I rotate it clockwise it does not go to landscape "the other way". And, if I'm holding the phone 'normally' and rotate it 180 degrees ('upside down') it doesn't follow.My youngest daughter delights in telling me that her iPhone does this with no problem. What's up with that?

HTC Incredible :: No Keyboard In Landscape Mode

Apr 29, 2010

I just bought my android incredible today and I'm absolutely addicted to it. However, I ran into a problem today with my phone that makes me wonder if it's something minor that I can fix on my own or if it has to be taken in. You know when you tilt your phone longways the display changes as well so you have a bigger keyboard? Well, mine's not doing it now and I'm wondering what the problem is.

Motorola Droid 2 :: No Landscape Mode When Not Using Keyboard

Nov 12, 2010

I got my Droid 2 (or as it is called in Germany Milestone 2) just this week. I got two minor things that are bugging me. (see the other one here Is it possible to reconfigure the keyboard?) Otherwise I'm loving my new phone. I got the auto-adjust option for the Display turned on but for some reason the screen won't switch to the landscape mode as long as I don't pull out the physical keyboard. That is only the case for the homescreens and the main app menu. Otherwise it works fine. For example, if I open the settings I get to look at them in landscape mode with the keyboard in our out.

HTC Incredible :: Browser And Keyboard Not Switching To Landscape Mode

May 25, 2010

Had the phone about 30 hours or so, been happily learning the ins and outs of my first android. Was streaming Pandora for a couple hours while working, then went to type a text and the full size landscape qwerty wouldn't come up only that aweful portrait mode cramped keyboard that makes me feel like I am typing on a blackberry now the browser won't switch to landscape either which is 'incredibly' annoying. Teeter seems to work fine, on level 19 and also "Bubble" an app for Leveling which switches to landscape in either direction.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Shutting Screen In Camera Mode?

Oct 11, 2010

I want to use this phone as a digital camera replacement. However when I turn on tehcamera, the power button turns into a "lock" button. There's no way to turn off the screen. So first I have to hit the home key. Then it takes about 8 seconds for the camera to disable before it returns to the home screen.Only then can I shut the phone using the power key. Then if I want to use the camera,I have to turn on the screen and relaunch the camera app.This feels completely wrong to me and makes it hard to use as a pure digital camera.

HTC Droid Eris :: Minimize Keyboard Button In Landscape Mode?

May 26, 2010

So the "minimize keyboard" button in the lower left of the landscape qwerty keyboard works maybe every 5th time. I only started noticing this after the 2.1 OTA. However my wife has the 2.1 on her Eris as well and hers works perfectly. If I make sure to push the very top edge of the button, it works fine, but just pressing it normally in the middle rarely works. Perhaps there is something wrong with that corner if the screen.

HTC Hero :: Soft Keyboard Does Not Go Into Landscape Mode When Phone Is Orientated

Feb 18, 2010

I would've been happy as a passive forum user and keeping up with other's posts but my Hero has recently developed a problem, prompting me to sign up and get some advice from you guys who have more experience.

Basically in the last couple of days my soft keyboard has randomly decided to change how it displays and works! 3 main problems:

- sometimes soft keyboard does not go into landscape mode when phone is orientated (seen suggestions on here of calibrating keyboard and installing bubble and running the bubble clibration: tried both of these but has not solved problem).

- when phone does decide to let me in landscape mode no text is displayed as you type....only when you switch back to portrait do you see what you have typed

- when in text message mode the predictive text box has moved and is now being overlayed on the text message body, so basically i cannot see what i am typing! (the predictive text box used to be displayed above the text message body). This problem is the most annoying out of the two!

Android :: Soft Keyboard Not Open On Custom View In Landscape Mode?

Dec 14, 2009

I've been experimenting with the IMM and it's mostly straightforward, but for some reason, my custom view that launches the soft keyboard works only in portrait mode. Launching it is easy enough:
InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getContext().getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.toggleSoftInputFromWindow(getWindowToken(), InputMethodManager.SHOW_IMPLICIT, 0);

I've seen a couple notes about the soft keyboard only working in portrait but I assume this was a limitation in a previous version, since all the Android EditText views work fine in both portrait and landscape. Is there some additional piece of work needed to enable landscape?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Android Keyboard Response - Landscape And Portrait Mode

Sep 2, 2010

I am having a lot of difficulty with my keyboard in both landscape and portrait. I am using the "Android Keyboard" that came with the phone. Examples of what I am referring to:

1. Wrong Key Showing: I type one letter and a different one is actually displayed.
2. Horrible Response: I get half way through an email and realize I need to fix an error in the middle of the paragraph. Trying to get the cursor where I want it a extremely hard to do and often it will move, but not where it is suppose to be moved to. Other times the cursor simply doesn't move at all and I have to erase all the back to where the error is and than retype. And no the cut and paste or copy and paste do not work since the cursor is not moving.
3. Random sentences just erase: I will be typing and hit the back key to erase a character, but instead it erases a line or two and won't stop.

Suggestions and no I am not going to root and void the warranty.

I haven't downloaded any apps that do this and while its in this mode it wont rotate back to portrait. The only way I could change it back is by rebooting. I haven't found a way to voluntarily recreate this, it just happens, maybe by a certain combination of keys,but I'd like to know how to recreate this. I'm sure its probably really obvious so forgive me for my obliviousness
