Living with Samsung S6 Phone

Having lived with the S4 model for two years, the substantial improvement in speed has justified the upgrad to the S6, but the software is a major negative. The phone seems unable to use landscape mode forcing users to portrait as the only way to access important functions such as phoning!

Starting point to gain control of Android on the S6

But the next prblem is actually finding a copy of the phone app as provided on the S4. This has worked perfectly while the phone is mounted hands free in the car while it also provided sat-nav with an essentially landscape display. The S6 is somehwat less than safe when used in the car :(
