Slow switching from portrait to landscape

I love the new Z10 but the switch from portrait to landscape mode is slow and sometimes erratic. Is there a setting to adjust?

Re: Slow switching from portrait to landscape

I had the same or similar issue. Inadvertantly, for some reason the phone lost its ability to know its ID. I was having a number of issues with email shortcuts since the day I bought the phone.

 

I got in touch with Blackberry support. We ended up downloading and re-installing the OS. I had a backup done on the Link softare before proceeding.

 

After the OS was re-installed the phone has been great. It is an excellent phone. I like it a lot.

No setting to adjust (yet..) but I'm sure that it will be added in the future. Everyone has the slow rotation issue as far as I know. I personally locked the orientation to vertical (it's super easy to do from the top settings menu (swipe down from top bezel and toggle with the rotation icon) because most of the phone apps work with it vertical. Apps that need it to be rotated (Angry Birds SW for instance) will force the flip anyway and work just fine. Smiley Happy

 

Just beware when taking video or you'll have to turn your TV sideways if you forget to turn off the rotation lock before you take one! Smiley Very Happy
