A Big Disappointment

Reviewed on Thursday December 7, 2017 by , Oakville, Ontaario
This phone is definitely not for the vision impaired.
It doesn't live up to it's hype and the claims of it's maker, and the user guide wasm't much help, with some glaring errors. For example, in the section about making and answering phone calls, the manual says "press on either the accept or reject button", but it's not done that way, you have to touch a middle icon with arrows (a completely redundant function in my opinion) and move it to the right or left. But the worst thing I didn't like about the phone was viewing the text in the screen displays, I couldn't read any of it without using a magnifier. In the settings app. (if you can find it, they hide it in "more apps" when it should have been up and front in the "applications" display screens. There's a setting that allows you to select a text sizefrom "small" to "largest. I selected largest", but it wasn't reflected in the screen displays. Also, there's no way you can make the text "bold" to make it more readable.
