How to Change Font Style in Android Phone
One of the excellent features of an Android operating system is that it offers to customize device interface. Using this feature, Android smartphone users can also customize the appearance of their phone, including font style and font size. Android provides lots of different options to change the font style and size of the phone.
Android offers a built-in font settings feature to change font style and enhance your experience. However, not all Android phones give a feature to change default font style and size (especially old versions). In such a case, you can use a different Android app from Google Play Store that allows changing device font style and font size.
Due to large numbers of Android manufacturers and a wide variety of Android versions, the font style settings vary. Different Android devices and Android versions have different settings, but mostly the same.

Based on the different handset, you will normally find the option to change font style under the Settings > Display. Under the "Display" screen, you can change font's style and size from the available options.
