I currently use a Samsung Note 3 which is dying.  The  dial pad  is easy to see because it is big and white numbers on a black background.  I have looked at  3 or 4 different phones but they all have small black numbers on a white background  which I struggle to see.  I was told that there is an app that might change the colors of the dial pad but have not seen it. 

I was thinking of buying the  Samsung J7 Pro  but I need to figure  this out first

any suggestions well appreciated

Virtually any Android Theme I've ever used will change the color scheme of the dial pad.  I just went from black numbers on a light background to white numbers in a completely different font and size on a deep red-brown background.


Look into the themes your candidate device scan support and take a look at the screen shots of the dial pad.

You can easily change the dial pad colors with many third party applications readily available in the app store. Buy the one that fits your need based on comparison
