New Geely Mirrors Your IPhone Screen Sideways For Guaranteed Neck Injuries

Chinese Geely is offering up smartphone integration in the most Chinese way possible…by just copying the screen, no matter what the screen orientation. Personal injury lawyers: your Chinese golden egg has arrived thanks to tweaked necks as drivers try to swipe up and down on Tinder.
According to CarNewsChina, this is the new Geely Englon Haijing SC7 and it features either the worst Photoshop ever for press photos or the worst smartphone integration on the planet. Or both. Even the home button on the pictured iPhone is on the wrong end.

The biggest problem with automotive connectivity is that the average age of a smartphone is 3-4x less than the average age of a car. Making the car a fancy touchscreen for a phone is a great idea from that perspective. Heck, with the number of B&B that advocate for used cars, it's the only way to not have to live with Sync 1 for the next 5 years of your life.
Even sideways it still beats the hell out of most factory systems.
I'm more alarmed that they would consider releasing a car with that dreadful indigo interior lighting...
And this is the company that owns Volvo. Such a shame.
