The world is in landscape so what possesses people using phones to constantly take portrait images of cars and mountains and houses? It makes no sense to me.
Lazy people who want to use only one hand to hold their camera thing. You can hold them sideways with one hand too, but it's awkward. Otherwise you need two hands, and that's just tooooo inconvenient. Actually, I think portrait-mode movies are far more atrocious. :x

Lots of fantastic photography is portrait. Sure, plenty of people do it because they are lazy or don’t “get it”, but portrait photography definitely has it’s place.

Recently I found an older article about the problem: https://www.daveperrett.com/articles/20 ... -a-ghetto/ - even if the article is more than years old, most of it ist still valid

I didn't read the article but this is something the phones and other devices should of never implemented. They should of been storing the raw files with the correct orientation. As the article pointed out it's not just a phpBB issue and can lead to all kinds of problems. If you are using older editor for example that doesn't support it suppose you flip the image. If the EXIF is unedited when you view it in software that does support it now it's flipped the wrong way again....
