Since my Note 9 updated to 9.0 and One UI the compass is not working accurately.  About 90 degrees off. I've calibrated it several times (*#0*#) with no success. Anyone else experience this and is there a fix?  This is happening without a case on the phone so there is no interference from that.

By the way.... on your advice, I downloaded Dioptra and tried it.  Wonderful app... going to have to try it again AFTER they fix my compass.  According to it, EVERYTHING now is between NW and SW.  Nothing else....

Brad your right ... my chair was faceing west and all my maps and compass showed north ... Then tried Dioptra and it showed west ... I should have tested farther ... I get the same as you. ... But Dioptra is a nice program

Totally no problem.  I fly a drone and the compass in the phone orients me to the direction that the drone is.  I don't want to take a chance on "Misplacing" my drone.  But you are right.  That is a very good app.  Gonna try it again once they figure out what happened.  Thanks for the advice though...

I tried the Dioptra app but it's still showing an incorrect azimuth. I'm facing 180 and it's telling me 265. I've had some slightly different results with every app that uses the sensor data, but they're all off by a long way. The sensor needs to be fixed before any of them will come close to being consistent.

Just spend a few hours on the phone with Sprint after they tried everything they could and with me telling them all along that it was a firmware issue. They admitted it was a firmware problem  and there was nothing they could do. Said they would't roll it back to 8.1

I then called sales and fold them I would be at the Spriont store Monday morning to return their phone and expected my 1000 dollars back. I was man enough to write them a check now they need to man up and write me one. If not I'm a big boy and I know the way to the court house.

Well, if I had my 'Druthers, I love to have mine back at Nougat.  I wasn't that impressed with Oreo (the OS, not the cookie.  I love the cookie)  Nougat was fine and then everything after that, they started taking Features away and replacing them with.....  Well, I can't say what they replace them with...  but it makes good fertilizer.  So far, I've found two bad things about this system.  The compass and the Individual Text Message tones.  Or the lack thereof.  

 

And before someone else jumps in and tells me about how to assign a text message tone to the conversation by pressing the 3 little dots, that don't work for a GROUP message.  Just to save  y'all some time typing again.
