And now, by default, the user can rotate the screen of the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8 and rotate the interface in the horizontal , the same as in the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
This setting is available in the settings of the home screen and precisely allows the user to block the rotation in the horizontal.
An improvement to optimize the user experience
This option can be especially interesting for those who wish use the mobile in horizontal , in order to be able to manipulate with more agility and guarantees sections of the screen that otherwise could not without making less intuitive movements.
