On my new phone, OnePlus with Android 12, the incoming call UX is abysmal. There is a circle with a phone handset in the middle, with white chevrons indicating you can swipe up or down. Somehow you are supposed to guess that up means answer and down means decline. On my old android 11 phone at least there was a green icon for answer and red icon for decline, but it was still swipe left or right. What is it with these asshole interface designers who think that left/right or up/down has some universal meaning? Fuck these people.

I’m fairly sure that when you hold on the circle without swiping, it will show you which direction does what. not ideal, but not requiring you to guess either.
I just tested and nope. It doesn’t.
