Essential has released the PH-1 lately, but many of its users has made it known , that their device will not rotate and its accelerometer has halted and is not working,this is especially true when they have the screen rotation on and it iOS not performing as expected.
For instance, when the Essential PH-1 screen will not revolve even on the Internet page and stays in place in the upright position and will not move or rotate screeen when the camera changes its position.
Another example of the issue made known by PH-1 proud owners, is the PH-1 camera showing everything wrong side up(ie, inverted) and all the PH-1 buttons are the same way.We will be discussing the the two steps to possibly rectify the problem.
The first suggestion would be to hard rest or to conduct a master reset on your PH-1 device.
