Hello,
it seems that my Metal's compass/FW has some flaw - the compass lists as "unreliable". Compass calibration usually does nothing, sometimes it works, but it never saves (when I open the GPS Status app again, it is again listed as uncalibrated). The same goes with system settings, Google sky map...
GPS Status shows right after calibration quite OK data, but only until I leave it. If I reopen it, the compass is off again.

Another thought - all cardboard apps I've tried take the gyro position when they are started and then no more movement input. Could it be that the whole sensors stack is somehow broken? Screen orientation, flip and light sensor are OK.

You use phone in flip case? If you use the flip case,then the compass not will working because it contain a magnet. Remove phone from flip case.

I use it in ulefone silicon soft case. No magnet near the phone. I can calibrate the sensor,after that it's acceptable,but if i close the app and start again, i need recalibrate. Not store the calibration data.

Yes, compass is shit. Without the case, outside on open, no matter how I turn the phone, it always shows North at cca 20 degrees

The compass works good even with the flip case, but the calibration can't be saved.
