    STEPS TO CHECK WHETHER THE SENSOR'S ARE CALIBRATED OR NOT
    -open dialer,
    -enter *#808# to explore all HARDWARE related tests,
    -scroll down and tap on G-SENSOR test,now,place your phone in

    LEFT-HORIZONTAL-VERTICAL POSITION( ideal angle should be 270 degree)

    RIGHT-HORIZONTAL-VERTICAL POSITION(ideal angle should be 90 degree)
    IMG-20151114-WA0025.jpg
    VERTICAL POSITION(ideal angle should be 0 degree)
    IMG-20151114-WA0021.jpg

    P.S 2 or 3 degree's more or less than the ideal angle doesn't matter

    now, if the angles you got varies abruptly with the ideal one's, this guide will be useful for you.

    CALIBRATION NOW BEGINS


    -from the same test's list, tap on SENSOR SELF TEST & CALIBRATION which is right above the G-sensor test.
    - there'll be 3 sensor's present up in that list:

    1. ACCEL: LIS3DSH Accelerometer
    2.MAG: MMC34160PJ MMC34160PJ
    3.GYRO: L3GD20 Gyroscope

    now, tap on 1st test. if you get Test FAILED. Error: Device Busy ( if you're not getting this error, follow the guide from START till END) as the result , then here's the solution for it:

    - open PLAY STORE >> settings >> Auto-update apps (under general) >> select "do not auto-update apps".
    - settings >> security >> device administrators(under device administration) >> uncheck " Android Device Manager".
    -settings >> apps >> "Google Play Services" >> DISABLE.
    -Restart your phone,
    -NOW,

    START PLACE YOUR PHONE IN STRICT HORIZONTAL POSITION ON A PERFECT STABLE HORIZONTAL SURFACE

    -tap on each test for about 9-10 times ( this will re-calibrate the sensor's).
    - again go back to "G-sensor" test to confirm the new angle's.

    -you're all done :) END
    -again go back to "device administrator" and check "Android Device Manager".
    -update "Google Play Services" from the given link : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gms&hl=en
    -again go back to "Play Store" and choose the app's update type as per your preference.

    WIPE SYSTEM CACHE after everything is been done


    ALTERNATIVE METHOD FOR DEVICE BUSY ERROR (HARD RESET REQUIRED)
    -switch off
    -press power button+vol down , till phone vibrates ,then release them
    -choose English language
    -advanced
    -format data, choose yes and format it
    -reboot


    now, while setting up your phone "SKIP THE GOOGLE SIGN-IN PAGE" and proceed further. the moment you reach at home screen :

    - open
    PLAY STORE >> settings >> Auto-update apps (under general) >> select "do not auto-update apps". (this should be done like crazy fast. if your phone is connected to wifi or mobile data, then please disable them).

    now,open *#808# menu >> SENSOR SELF TEST & CALIBRATION: then follow the same guide lines from
    START till END.

    -again go back to "Play Store" and choose the app's update type as per your preference.
    -sign-in to your google account.
    -update your phone and ENJOY!:)

    THANKS FOR READING. HAVE A NICE DAY:)
