Rotary Dial Mechanical Smartphone by Richard Clarkson

I just stumbled upon this amazing Rotary Mechanical Smartphone that has been designed by Richard Clarkson. What’s unique about the phone is the old school rotary dial with a unique combination of touch screen. This is something unusual and I found it really funky!

Technical Details of Rotary Mechanical Smartphone:

On the front of the Rotary Mechanical Smartphone, there is a digital touch screen while on the back, it is powered by interchangeable mechanical disks. At the first glance, it would appear like a device from late 80’s but it has got a lot to explore!

With time, the overlying layer of the paint will wear away leaving the electroplated copper beneath.

How to reject a call when your iPhone is locked?

You would think that being able to reject a call on iPhone is probably one of the easiest things in the world, but certainly that is not the case. It is seen that a lot of people face this difficulty of rejecting the call when their iPhone screen is locked. When the iPhone screen is locked, the only option you see is “Slide to answer”. What if you do not want to answer the call, what would you do?

Despite the fact that iPhone is an incredibly easy to use device, but there are two different screens a user always see when receiving incoming calls.


Depending on what you want, there are a couple of things that you can do. If you wish to reject the call while your screen is locked, all you have to do is press the power button twice as quickly as possible. Pressing the button once will put the ringer to the silence mode while the second time will reject the call. If the iPhone screen is not locked, you are presented with an option to accept or reject the call.

It is obvious that not everyone wants to answer every single call that they receive!
