    Hi guys,

    I've got a Samsung Galaxy S5 and the compass always seems to point 90-180 degrees in the wrong direction and requires calibration multiple times a day. It's ridiculously annoying! Does anyone know why this might be the case? It was never this bad on my S4...

    *#0*# then sensor shows "requires calibration" many times a day.
