How to Reduce the Font Size on a Samsung Galaxy S III
By Nick Peers
If the font size is too large on your Samsung Galaxy S3, you may have difficulties reading your text messages or emails. The font size property affects fonts on the entire phone, so reducing it reduces the text size in all apps. Although the Galaxy S3 runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich, you don't need to root the device to change the font size. In fact, you don't even need to install a third-party app. You can choose from five font sizes, depending on your preference.
Reducing the Font Size
Open the Settings screen on the phone and then navigate to the Display section. Tap "Font Size" and then choose the font size that best suits your needs. You can choose from Tiny, Small, Normal, Large and Huge. You can test each setting and see how the text looks on the Settings screen. However, you may want to test the settings in the Messaging or Gmail app, for example. If you aren't satisfied with the result, you can always choose a different size. If you want to change the font style, tap "Font Style" from the Display section of the Settings menu and choose a different font style.
