The best cell phone for low vision

We tend to recommend Apple products because they do have a lot of accessibility features built in. For example we can change contrast so it is white on black or black on white. There are easy to use magnification zoom options, and there is a whole ecosystem of applications that are made for low vision.


Another factor behind recommending Apple products, is the passionate and vibrant community that shares resources and knowledge for the Apple low vision community.
