In Gallery, wiewing a picture that has been taken with the phone camera in landscape: when the phone is vertical, the picture is vertical and (nearly) fills the screen (4:3 image). When the phone is rotated 90 degrees CCW to view the image in landscape, the image remains vertical. The image is oriented correctly on screen after one "rotate left" operation.

It works the same way as on the N9, only left rotation works. Doesn't seem to go wrong here.

Oh this is curious: The Gallery app will only rotate images (of either format) left as @BonoNL says. However, images when viewed in the Camera app will rotate them to any of the positions (including upside down). I think question needs re-tagging
