Today I’m here again with another awesome trick to give a whole new look to your Android Smartphone, by changing the fonts on your Android Smartphone.

This trick will basically work only on Samsung smartphones and HTC smartphones without root access.

You can only change the fonts if you have a font style option in your display setting, I’m using nexus 5 and I’m really disappointed that , it doesn’t have this feature but no issues you can change your font in Any Android device if you have root access.

Finally, after downloading the desired font, these are the steps you need to follow which will change the fonts on your smartphone!
Step 1- Go to Settings
Step 2- Scroll down to display settings
Step 3- Go to the font style options in the Display setting
Step 4- You’ll find that you are giving 4-5 options from which you can select the font.

Rooting doesn’t have any particular method that we can cover; every smartphone has its own way of getting Root access. So we suggest you to Google “How to Root [name of your device]” and preferably go to the XDA developers link.
