What is it Gyroscope?

A Gyroscope is a device used for measuring or maintaining orientation and angular velocity. In other words, it helps with the object’s orientation. The outside look of the Gyroscope reminds us of a Fidget Spinner, a toy that you can balance and spin.

Steps to calibrating a G-Sensor on your phone:

  • Open the “Settings” of your android device.
  • Depending on which Android device you are currently using, find either the “Display” or “Advanced Features” option and tap on it.
  • Tap on Motions and Gestures 
  • Look for the “G-sensor” option 
  • When you’ve found it, you will need to place your phone on a flat surface, such as a desk.
  • Click on the “Calibrate” option and try not to move your phone until this action is finished. The process itself won’t take long and will be completed in a few seconds.

Since there are more methods of calibrating your Gyroscope, we will show all of them here.

You can use other apps to do this. There are many different apps available in the store. 


Calibrating using a GPS Status App

  • Open your Google app store.
  • When you’ve opened it, go to “Search” and type “GPS status.” Such as the GPS Status & Toolbox 
  • Find and download one of the “GPS status” apps. If you wish to use some other app, either one you choose will do its job well, so choose whichever you want.

Note: Not all of these apps will be available and compatible with your device, search for the right one in Google’s app store.

  • Once you install the GPS Status app, you will need to permit it to access specific files on your mobile phone. Allow and continue.
  • You will need to find the “Calibrate pitch and roll” option. It will be in different places based on which you are using. Since we are here showing you how to use the Gps Status & Toolbox app, you will need to find that “Calibrate pitch and roll” option on your screen.
  • After clicking on the “Calibrate” option, place your phone on a flat surface, on a table, on a floor, etc. And do not use it or move it for a certain amount of time. This process will only last a few seconds.

After the calibration is over, you will be able to use your phone again regularly.

Note: Some Android mobile phones, such as Samsung phones, have a fast and hidden menu. If you wish to access the fast menu and activate calibration this way, you will need to go to the phone dialer and type this code *#*# to access it. Click on “System” next, lay your phone on a flat surface, and let the calibration test finish.
