Hello, is it possible to calibrate the g-sensor of the Jolla C. When I use a level app (I tried two different) , it shows 0° when placed upright and 93.4° when placed sideways on an exactly leveled surface.

not sure you can use the g-sensor for accurate measurements for the level app, unfortunately jolla C does not have a gyro-sensor.

so, which sensor is used for the level apps?

I thought it has a Gyro, but no Compass?

Under Jolla C full specs page on it lists the following sensors:


Proximity Sensor

Light Sensor

g-sensor is also known as accelerometer gyro-sensor can tell when the device tilt

unfortunately Jolla C is missing the gyro-sernsors and the magnetic sensor in comparison to Jolla 1

Anyway, is there a way to calibrate the g-sensor's sensitivity? Many times it changes to landscape mode when I tilt the phone a bit but still use it in portrait position.
