    Just got my Note 3 a few days ago. I feel like there is some sort of issue with the accelerometer, because whenever I use the camera/camcorder or watch any videos, the screen/controls will keep flipping from portrait to landscape and back without me physically moving the phone, or even touching it. PLEASE HELP!

    Hello and welcome to the forums . You having problems with the accelermeter. Did you root the device or mod in any way shape or form. If the answer is no you need to configurat the device this is where you would turn the device many different ways . Did you complete this and try to see if the maps will show your exact location.

    I haven't rooted the phone or done any kids other than usual apps from the play store. I've turned it every which way, maps does show my exact location. Not sure where to turn next

    You could try going in to settings and disabling Screen Rotation, but if that doesn't fix it, perhaps you should take it back where you got it and see if they can either help you with it or replace it.

    And let me add my welcome, as well. :)

    I'm having similar issues. any help would be appreciated.

    Accellerometer works for first hour or so after rebooting, but then freezes. When i run a test, the ball is stuck on the corner of the screen.
