Hi.  I have an iPhone 6 as a backup and an iPhone 7 as my main phone.  I
don't really like apple's controling philosophy but it does appear that the
iPhones have the widest usage in the blind community and the accessibility
is very good and there is an abundance of help for iOS.  I was just
wondering because I rarely hear of these other phones these days and was
wondering just what has happened to them.  I don't have a lot of apps on my
phone but those I do are very accessible and hence usable.  Walter.

Hi Walter
I have the Windows 10 Nokia Lumia phone for a backup phone. I think the
accessibility is actually pretty good and a lot of people put them down
because it might not be as good as Apple or Samsung simply due to it doesn't
have the same amount of apps. I say if you're a person who doesn't use a lot
of apps on your phone  then  windows might  be for   you but if you use a
lot of apps then know.
