Nexus 6p – How to Fix Screen Rotation Bug Without a Reboot

The Huawei Nexus 6p is a beast.

 

Like any beast, she’s got a hairy side.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And it’s a screen rotation bug. At times, the screen snaps back and forth between orientations quicker than a gay Republican.

I’ll come right out and say that I can’t fix the problem. I can only treat it as it happens.

And the treatment’s quite simple.

1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to access your notifications / quick settings.

2. Click on the airplane to activate Airplane Mode.

Once the connection’s been dropped, you will be able to reassert control over your rebellious device – or shave the beast, if you will.

3. Swipe down from the top of the screen to access your notifications / quick settings.

4. Click on the airplane to deactivate Airplane Mode.

And you’re done!

Personally, I’ve had this problem in one context only – while casting to a Chromecast – and figured that the problem was therefore connection-related. With that in mind I tried airplane mode, and discovered that it could, in fact, always deal with the issue. Hope this works for you too!
