    Best phone for poor vision

    Which GSM phone would be best for someone with poor vision. It should have very well-lit display and key pads, large numbers on the key pads and large text in the display. Thank you

    The Samsung phones have the best screens, by far. They are clear, with good contrast, and the back lighting is very bright.

    The key pads have back lighting. The numbers are translucent with an opaque background. Thus the numbers stand out.

    Look at the SGH-V205, or SGH-S300. These have color screens.

    The inexpensive SGH R225 has a bright blue backlit screen. The key pad is also easy to read.



    The Motorola phones also have some pretty decent screens.

    Personally, I find the Nokia screens to be somewhat dim and muddy.

    i think you should go into T Mobile and see for yourself.

    The S300 is tiny...the V205 might be better.

    I suggested T-Mobile cause that's in your profile...i suggest you go yourself, because we have no idea how poor your eyesight really is.

    I think you need a big colour screen, i was going to suggest the upcoming Nokia3650, but the key pad is small and has an unconventional key pad (it's round)...but spaced out pretty good and it has a nice big colour screen.

    it also has a nice built in camera like the V205, but that's probably not a high priority.

    good luck.
