samsung fonts

Fonts are a simple thing that can drastically change how something looks. If you have a Samsung Galaxy phone, you have the ability to change the system font. It’s an easy way to personalize your device.

A “font” is the particular style of text. Fonts can be bold, curly, thin, handwritten, blocky, and a million other different styles. Some fonts are beloved, while others are hated. All that matters is that you choose one you like, and we’ll help you do that on your Samsung device.
