Google Pixel 6 has sensor problems, breaking auto-rotate

Pixel 6 and The Pixel 6 Pro may still be almost fresh out of the oven, but their novelty is taking a toll on some users, who have been forced to deal with annoying bugs on handsets that just won’t go away—indeed, the series appears to be. One of the smallest lineups Google has released yet.

according to a Android Policereport, in both models Google’s latest flagship models are prone to annoying bugs in its software, one of which is the auto-rotate feature on the hardest-hit devices.
An Android December patch has already gone live to take care of some of the major bugs in the series, but it hasn’t fixed everything by a long shot — and certainly not the recurring auto-rotate problem that users need to get to their phone. are unable to. Screen to flip sideways or back to vertical position.
The problem appears to stem from faulty communication between the Pixel 6’s on-board physical sensor and the software. At times, the device appears to be unable to read the data provided by some of these sensors, such as the gyroscope, accelerometer and compass. This was discovered by running tests with the Sensor Test app, and it was found that the response from the sensor fails at times.
It is the gyroscope and accelerometer that are responsible for detecting when to automatically flip your screen, and with the system unable to read the data provided by these sensors, the device has no way of knowing. No matter whether your phone is positioned vertically or horizontally.
Pixel 6 and 6 Pro users have also been complaining that their phone is often unable to accurately show which direction they are facing on the map when using navigational apps like Google Maps. The little pointer either spins all the way, or is fixed and pointing in the wrong direction, making it hard for them to figure out how to get from point A to point B.

This, like the auto-rotate bug, is in turn caused by a lack of feedback from the compass sensor located inside the device.

As of now, there’s no word from Google on these persistent sensor-related issues, but it’s expected that the tech giant is already working to prepare yet another Android patch for the Pixel 6 series, which will be some of the most popular. There can be frustrating (albeit small) bugs once and for all!
