Polarized lenses can impact what you see on your smartphone.

According to Allaboutvision.com, polarized light tends to reflect from flat surfaces and can create dangers such as glare and reduced visibility. Polarized lenses combat this with a filter that blocks this kind of light.

When worn, polarized glasses can affect the viewing of GPS devices and cell phones.
Allaboutvision.com notes boaters and pilots wearing them have reported visual issues with LCD panels on important systems.

Popular Science writes that by rotating a smartphone 90 degrees in either direction, a user wearing polarized glasses can line up the glass and phone filters to make the screen viewable again.
