Here's a common problem that we all have with smartphones. Imagine yourself reading something on your device. At one point you decide to lay down. While you are laying down, you turn from side to side once in a while, and the first thing that happens then is the screen rotates at 90 degrees even though you didn't rotate the phone. Then you have to shake the phone, regain the orientation you want and so on. For me, this is very annoying. Luckily, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a feature that solves exactly this problem. The Smart Rotation feature found under Settings > Display menu on your Galaxy Note 2, uses the front facing camera to analyze how your face is oriented, and then using the sensors and whatever technology is inside the Note 2, the screen stays oriented accordingly with your face. Some advice, remember that the front facing camera won't work perfectly if there isn't enough light in the room The Galaxy Note 2 comes with the Smart Rotation feature disabled. It probably consumes a lot of battery too. But if you are reading and you want your Note 2' screen not to rotate while you move, you can certainly benefit from this feature.
