I have a friend with a eyesight issue.  Not just needing glasses.  Possible enlarge the dialling keypad so it fills up more of the screen?  He used to have an iPhone and says that had the option.  


Is there an app that can do this?  He has a Huawei Nova I believe.

The 'Dialer' Is usually made to each manufacturers requirements. It's an over-top app that simply sends commands to the phone functions of the OS.


So you can install alternative versions if the factory one doesn't suffice. But choices are limited


Iphone one tends to just be more spaced out I thought. 


Mine (moto) takes up 3/4 of the screen but has no clear bounding boxes.


The only other option is see if accessability changes can do it. I can enable zoom but it then needs the dialpad to be 2-finger moved around to get to other numbers
