    And yet the Android homescreen does not show in Landscape, which is a pretty big deal for a camera.

          That’s a proper #firstworldproblem. Do you know for certain that it’s the case? The pic up there might be a) mocked up, or b) done without the setting enabled. Even if you’re right, yes, samsung should have made it an option, but it’s hardly that big a deal to fix it in about 90 seconds.

            considering this looks like a first world camera/phone, then it’s not unreasonable to have first world problems with it :)

            I do think it’s pretty cool though, and home screen rotation is not a big deal. But I’ll wait and see. My biggest concern with these gadgets is always battery life.
