    I am using an Android smartphone for the past few months and I have no idea about its Android version. Now, I need to turn off the screen rotation with the device. What are the procedures required for that?

    First of all, you need to launch the ‘Settings’ app available with your phone. Navigate through the app and locate the ‘Display’ option. You can find ‘auto-rotate’ item under that option. Clear off the checkbox located near that item by tapping on it. This will lock up the device into portrait mode. If you want find such an option under ‘Display’ option, then launch the ‘Google Play Store’ app. Search for ‘screen rotation’ widget from the store and download it into your phone. Then, try to lock the screen using that widget.

    Hi,
    That ROTATION is due to your auto rotate being enabled in your phone.
    So in order to disable it just do the following:
    Go to SETTINGS.
    Now click on DISPLAY.
    Then click on AUTO ROTATE.
    Uncheck it.
    That`s it.....
    Hope this surely helps....
