I want to use icons to represent whether you got an smartphone or just an old-fashioned phone in a web form.

What icons may be recognized by all people for this?

Ps. I can use a tooltip.

  • might be useful to explain why you'd want to do this? If I've a phone it can make calls and most likely has the ability to access the internet so in the users mind they are one in the same - their phone is no different to someone else's. – Adam Fellowes Sep 15 '11 at 15:07
  • I mean, an eligible phone to install apps, but I don't want to put only Android and iPhone. – Felix G Sep 15 '11 at 16:08

    OK so those icons are those for the OS's you're going to support, that keeps them clear and simple. Apps are written for each device, however if you mean a mobile site then if its coded well and uses device detection you should aim to offer an experience for all. – Adam Fellowes Sep 16 '11 at 8:34

Smartphone: Rounded rectangle with little blocks on them (like iphone, android etc)

Dumbphone: Rounded rectangle with a square screen at top, numbers at bottom, and antenna protruding at the top.

Check what the guys at Yummygum made for the iconsweets2 series. They have several variations of the phone icon:
