No smartphones symbol.
Traditionally ‘no phone’ signs have meant no phone calls, but there’s a new predominant cultural use of phones, which is poking at the internet through touch screens. We should be able to address this behaviour too if we need to, in cinemas or theatres for example.

Perfect.
Just because you aren’t actively on the phone doesn’t mean your face being buried in a glowing screen all evening isn’t an asshole move. But, it’s also how we live these days. A reflection on the power we get from the rectangle of glass that have become ubiquitous in our culture. Nearly all daily tasks can now include the step “remove phone from pocket”. 

I feel strongly about this too. It makes me sad to see a table full of people at a bar starting at their phones and not engaging each other when they’re sitting right cross from one on another. It would do us all well to make it more of a practice to just leave our phones in our pockets or bags once we sit down with friends so we can actually be present and participate in real life.
