Auto Rotation Bug:- It's almost a 11 months since this bug is present in 5z. (Since A10 came out)

A lot of users have been experiencing this issue. I have myself reported this issue from the last 8 months and mods haven't been serious about this bug.

Detailed look at this Bug:-

Sometimes while watching YouTube, videos in any media player or while using any app when i rotate the device screen doesn't rotate for a very long time ( 30-60 seconds). When watching videos in media player (like Mx player or stock media player) or in YouTube video stuck at only one side which is default when any video is opened.

When screen is rotated 180° when any video is playing it takes usually 5 seconds to 1 minute.

Also after rotation when device is held vertically it's stuck in horizontal mode and takes about a minute to return to vertical mode.

About 40% of times when device is rotated it takes 5-10 seconds to rotate.

About 40% times it takes a minute.

And only 20% it rotates instantly.

I have to manually disable and enable the "sensors" from quick settings tiles "sensors off" which i enabled from developers settings.

Battery Drainage at Night :-

Battery is draining a lot from last 2 updates during night (12AM to 8 AM). Battery drops 6-8 percent during night. Do note that i turnoff wifi/data, close all apps before going to sleep. Brightness is manual and gestures are off. Device is 10 months old and i charge to 80% for good battery health. Before 2 updates it only dropped 1or 2% during night.

Also when i use mobile at morning battery quickly drops around 5% in merely 5 minutes. This happens daily.

In general usage it gives around 6 hrs of SOT, so it's not issue of battery. From last 2 updates i have observed that idle battery drain is higher.
