How to change fonts on Android with or without root
How to change fonts on Android without root
1. Change fonts on Samsung devices, step #1
Start off by going to the Settings (Device tab) > Display > Font > Font style
2. Change fonts on Samsung devices, step #2
Additionally, you can click the Download button in the pop-up context menu, and look for more font packs off the Samsung App store.
3. Change fonts on LG devices
4. Change fonts without root using a third-party launcher
In our example, we're using the super-popular GO Launcher. You'll need to download GO Launcher Fonts additionally. Once you do and download a font, make sure you click on "Scan fonts" for the new fonts to appear, and then select accordingly.
How to change fonts on Android with root
1. Step #1
Once there, navigate to system > fonts > click the little icon that looks like a checklist on top and then click the triple dot menu icon on the bottom right and use Select All. Then copy the fonts somewhere safe. It's best to have a backup on your PC, too, just in case.
Keep in mind that you're going to be messing up with system settings, so you never can be too careful. If you're feeling this is out of league, then don't proceed.
2. Step #2
Once downloaded and installed, fire up HiFont. You'll be immediately met with a scrollable list with previews of many fonts. Pick one, click it, tap Download, okay the prompt, and then click Use on the bottom left. After the pack is installed, you'll be asked to reboot for the changes to take effect. Do it. Check out a few examples in the next slides.
P.S.: You can use HiFont in conjunction with a Samsung app without root. Do the same thing -- you'll only need to activate the font through Samsung's standard fonts menu, as illustrated in the previous slideshow.

Or you could just flash font zips in the recovery.

These small tweaks in Touchwiz make me like Galaxies sometimes. Anyways Roboto is my favourite all time, so no need really for stock android. :)

Also Crispy, you should mention that changing fonts in the launcher only changes homescreen and drawer fonts. ;)

Huge one at that, well for those that are aware of options and want them.
