    The Zen mode, the idea behind, is to bar you from using tech in any form, so you could spend time on yourself, family, friends without distraction.

    Whether officially provided or not, you can get the app on apkmirror and it works fine on 3/3T too. What more info do you need beyond this?

    Why not give the option to enable Zen Mode for an hour or maybe even a day. Not as a default, but as an option.

    But beside OP app, there are other third party apps like Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram and a host of other sites. A phone needs other apps to be of any use nowadays.

    Sure does, but what if I want to take a break. I'm not talking about a permanent thing am I. what if I'm on holiday and I don't want anything but incoming calls

    In that case better use a feature phone,
    Maybe a thread can be started.
    OP should start manufacturing feature phone.
    No pun intended.

    Technically you can do that with the DND settings, set it up to not show notifications and allow incoming calls from contacts.
    I guess this would just be another way to do something similar.

    That's right,. The tragedy that Smartphone are also becoming addictive, limiting useful relationships and personal interactions. Zen Mode is a way of spreading awareness.
