For the past several days there have been reports all over the web that the auto rotate feature has stopped working all of the sudden. It is pretty odd that a feature would work just fine one day and then the next day it would just stop working. Samsung researched the issue and has found the culprit. As it turns out the fast charge feature is causing the phone to overheat. The overheating damages a part of the circuit board. The accelerometer is what is taking the damage. Of course the accelerometer is what controls the auto rotate. S
Samsung is strongly encouraging that Galaxy Edge users stop using the Fast Charge feature until they are able to release an update to resolve this. The Fast charge feature has been one of the most useful features since the Edge battery is only 2550mah. I have been able to get about 3 hours of screen on time out of my charge, and about 15 hours or so during the day. This means I am running out of battery before the day is completely over. If I want to go out during the evening I just throw my Edge on the fast charger giving me plenty of juice to get through the day. To avoid damaging the accelerometer this feature will no longer be useful.
Samsung has also confirmed that the issue is not present on the normal Galaxy S6. The good news is that this issue was caught early and a fix should arrive soon. If this has damaged your Edge you should be able to easily exchange yours at the store of purchase.
