The Galaxy S5 is among the selected few Android devices out there that allows the users to change the system fonts without the need to root their device. The feature is baked right into TouchWiz and also allows users to download additional fonts from the Play Store.

Read below to find out how you can change the system fonts on the Galaxy S5.

Keep in mind that changing the fonts might have a negative effect in some apps. While the pre-loaded fonts on the Galaxy S5 won’t cause any such issue, you might notice content not showing up properly in certain apps while using after market fonts from the Play Store.

Step 1: Head over to Settings -> Display (located under Sound & Display).


Step 2: Tap the Font option followed by the Font style option. From the list that pops-up, select your desired font and then tap Yes to apply it. To change the system font size, use the Font size option in the Font menu.

To download additional fonts, tap the Download option in the font selection pop-up box, which will take you to the Samsung App store. You can also purchase these fonts from Monotype Imaging on the Play Store, which are compatible with the Galaxy S5.
