Some phones have the custom fonts built in!

In some phones like Samsung, HTC, LG, etc. have the customs font built in and you can change the font from default to any font you like. They have the features that let you make changes to the font and appearance settings without needing to install third-party apps, though the options of the font may not be as wide as the dedicated app for fonts. The place and manner of accessing these settings of changing fonts could also vary as a result of operator tweaks to the OS  of your phone, but generally, you’ll need to head to Settings >> Display  >> Font to access the font style changer in your Android phones.

On a Samsung phone, to change the phone fonts, you can also head to the Settings > Accessibility menu. Samsung’s mobile has pre-installed alternate options that are ready to apply, but additional phone fonts for Android can be downloaded through the settings menu in the Font section.
