Smartphone for hard of hearing

Hi every1:

Could any1 tell me or recomend me a model for hard of hearing peolpe?

I need sometimes to increase the volume of the incoming speech.

All the new models seem to have the loudspeaker in the back,so that's not good either.

 

Thanks

Somthing I brought for my grandad that he absolutely adored was a Bluetooth hearing aid.

He was worried because he kept missing calls. You can also purchase a range extender for the house so you don't even have to carry the phone with you alwaysSmiley Happy

Works like a normal hearing aid and a hands free device at the same time.

You could possibly keep your current phoneSmiley Happy

If your only after a new phone I'm sure we can find one for youSmiley Happy

Annoyingly I cannot find any definitive information on the earpieces only the speakers of smart phones.

I can vouche for my iPhone 5 its incredibally loud and clear. (Pretty painful at full volume)

Samsung galaxy s3 is supposed to be rather loud as well.

If your near an O2 store head on in and I'm sure they'll happily let you try a few mobiles to find if one works well for you.
