One of the novel features in the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + software is the ability to rotate the screen on the desktop. It seems silly, but there are users who use the phone only and almost exclusively in horizontal mode. So this possibility could not continue more reserved only to the top of Samsung line.

Thanks to an update, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 + or Note 8 and you have installed the Samsung Experience launcher, you can rotate the screen on the desktop to use it in vertical format. We teach you how with a simple tutorial.
