Re: I'm not convinced that a rotary dial isn't quicker..
"Press the button on the phone to wake it. Swipe to unlock, enter the pin (4 digits and enter),
Find the phone app, choose keypad, enter the number and press send.
Then wait while the phone registers, while it checks that it's got credit and does no end of lookups which take a full 10 seconds before the phone at the other end rings."
Press button on phone which doubles as fingerprint reader.
Swipe to page with frequent contacts as buttons
Not a frequent contact?
Press phone button.
Start to type name.
Press dial button
In that time I would have dialed maybe three digits on a dial phone.
