Once the feature is ON and you receive a phone call, you can just flip or turn over your phone and it will silent the call. The same can be done when the alarm or timer sounds.

Some may find this feature to be one of the best Huawei Mate 10 Lite tricks. The feature is useful in keeping your personal and private life separate.

Here is what you need to do to enable this feature:
