    I have an Alcatel 1B 2020 32GB phone. It came with Android 10 - 02 Go Edition. I was able to increase the font size (the native font is tiny even after selecting largest setting) with a big font app. However, after it updated to 10 - 03 I had to factory reset the phone due to it not being able to come out of Extreme power saving Mode. After doing so I could not increase the font size higher than 130%. The coder of the big font app says it is a limitation of the the Google update which was fixed in the next release. However, alcatel updated the phone to version 10 - 04 but this has made no difference to being able to increase the font size. As far as I can see this was only a security update. Can anyone suggest any fixes to increas the font size as Alcatel haven't been very helpful with this matter when I contacted them. The phone is very difficult to use with the tiny font. Thanks.

    How were you increasing the font size before? Was it an Accessibility setting, or a setting somewhere else in system settings?

    Font size is set to 'Largest' in System settings. I was using Big Font app from the Google Playstore. I have tried most of the other big font apps also, none will work after the 10 - 03 update and recently 10 - 04 update. Tried posting screen shot but not working in Opera mini.

    Yes. After update from Android Go Edition 10 - 02 to 10 - 03. It is a known bug for that patch and was supposedly fixed in the following update. However my phone is now on Android Go 10 - 04 and still cannot increase the size above 130%.

    I received an update to Android 10 Go edition version 10 - 06 and it appears this was again just a security update as the issue persists. Does anyone have any solutions to enable me to increase the font size above 130%?
