Gear VR/Oculus keeps locking onto my movement

Hey all,

I'm using Gear VR 2016 version and am running it with my S6. I have a problem with my entire view being locked to my movement randomly. What i mean is that when i move my head, the entire picture/view moves with me instead of allowing me to look around. E.g. if my crosshair is on, let's say, a couch, and i move my head to look away, the entire picture moves with me and the couch is still in my crosshair. This happens every few seconds. One moment it's working as it should, the next the whole picture is moving with me. This happens in the tutorial and the home screen (and probably every app i'm assuming). It's very disorienting and annoying. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this a feature that keeps getting activated? Any solutions? Thanks in advance!

    Try to uninstall the Oculus/GearVR services. This can sometimes help with odd issues.

    Doesn't work.  I have this problem also and I have uninstalled/reinstalled it three times with no luck.

    So I'm using the gear vr with the note 8. Was using it for a couple of weeks with no issues. Now suddenly this is exactly what's happening except it isn't intermittent its persistent. I e uninstalled the oculus app, updated my phone , power cycled, tried any troubleshooting tip I could find.  Looks like nobody ever answered this question  please help!!!

    Same thing here, except the oculus app crashes 2 to 20 seconds later.
