Roboto is the latest typeface for Ice Cream Sandwich that is going to be in the all new Android smartphones. Roboto has been made from scratch by Android at Google exclusively keeping small screens in mind.
Now, since Samsung Smartphones support installing Custom FlipFonts on stock firmwares you can easily get Roboto on your beloved Samsung phone. Here are the instructions to do so:
- Download & extract the zip file from here. Install the APK you extracted. Make sure you have ‘Unknown sources‘ checked in Settings > Applications.
- Now go to Settings > Display > Font Style . Your recently downloaded font will show up here.
- Select whichever font you like. A prompt will offer to reboot. Select it & you’re done.
Note that if you are downloading Roboto from elsewhere, there are some that are not working. The above version has been tested by us.
As you can see Roboto displays text better & Consumes less space for the same amount of thickness without loss in clarity.
