    I'm looking to get an Android smartphone for my father, who is also hard of hearing. The phone would need to have a 5-inch screen and the sound quality needs to be great. What should I go with here? Thanks so much!

    Welcome to Brighthand.:vbsmile:

    I don't know much about phone sound quality (I assume you mean voice) for people who are hard of hearing, but I would definitely recommend looking at the Samsung large screen phones such as the Galaxy S5 or the Note 3 (or even the just announced Note 4) both for their large quality screens and amount of support, peripherals, etc.

    How much do you expect your father to use this as a smartphone, that is using the apps and other capabilities, as opposed to just a phone? That might make a difference on choices, I'm not sure.

    It would be a wait, but Apple is rumored to be announcing a 5" or so screen new version of the iPhone. You could wait for that announcement if not in a hurry. Again, phone quality, support and peripherals.
