The Pepsi Challenge, Day 5

This post is the second part of the series. Day 2 (part 1) is here.

So Android has this “accessibility” feature that lets you hang up on a call by tapping the power button.

Except what happens if you’re on a call, the screen turns off (say, you’re using the speakerphone, it’s on a table). How do you turn the screen back on?

You’re right! The answer is: you can’t! Instead it helpfully always hangs up on your caller.

Should only hang up on people with that button if the screen is already on. Not if it’s off.

Of course, this isn’t if during normal use the phone doesn’t decide to turn the screen back on when it’s held against your face, start pressing the hangup button then get the touchscreen “jammed” because of persperation.
