I just got the Axon7 yesterday. (I'm new to smartphones, so forgive me in advance if I'm not all that knowledgeable.) Of course, I'm setting things up and mostly seeing how things work since I don't know a thing about smartphones. Initially, the auto-rotate seemed to work fine, however, now it doesn't seem to be, at least not for the keyboard. I haven't used it yet for texting, but its no longer rotating when I open up texting. Maps do seem to still rotate, and does the camera. Yes, auto rotate is set in Settings.
I did start using TouchPal keyboard, which I didn't download. It was already on the phone but it required me to enable it, which I did. Not sure if that is related. I since turned it off and went back to the stock google keyboard, but still no auto rotate. I also tried restarting the phone, as suggested by some places, to see if the matter would resolve. It didn't.
Any help is appreciated.
