How to Change the Font Size in Android

When shopping for a new smartphone, we all want all the best possible features in it including a large screen and a better resolution. Although a high screen resolution screen brings out the best in any smartphone, yet it sometimes makes the screen fonts smaller and finer in display – making it harder to read them if you have a weak eye sight. If you are using an Android OS based smartphone and you have to squint your eyes to read the screen display because the fonts are unusually smaller, then you can easily change the font size in the Android settings.

Here is how you can change the font size of the user interface in Android:

  1. First of all open the settings in your Android smartphone. You can find the Settings icon in the all apps gallery, tapping on which you can open the Android settings.Change Font Size in Android
  2. On the settings screen, select the Display option under the Device category.
  3. On the Display screen, scroll down and select Font size option.Change Font Size in Android
  4. A new pop up will open where you can select the font size for the Android user interface. You can choose the font size from small, normal, large and extra large.

Changing the font size in Android settings affects only the user interface font size. It does not change the font size of other apps like Kingsoft Office, Microsoft Office other any other text editors. In additions, some of the apps may define their own font size and override the Android display settings.
