Please support font style

Developers please add / support font style for Xperia smartphone

 

It's important for some people. You know if we unlock the bootloader to change the font we will lose the warranty.

So, why you don't won't to add it / supporting the font style or listing for us ?

Every time we try to root the device to change to font & lose the warranty and this is bad.

 

Many and many of the manufacturers have / supported this features / option :

1- Samsung
2- LG
3- HTC
4- Huawei
5- Lenovo
6- Asus
7- Oppo
8- Xiaomi
9- OnePlus
10- Vivo

 

only Google / Sony still ?!

 

I know It's easy for you to add it, and because Android OS have many features & open system.

 

And don't forget , the Japanese software supported this option,so why not available for globally version ?

 

So, which one better ?

Add it to software and many people will enjoy it and will be happy.

Or

Rooting the device to change it and lose the warranty for one of the feature that we want ?

 

Since 2011 I'm always trying to rooting my Xperia devices to change the font style and my other friends have the option on Galaxy smartphone.

 

I hope if the developers or support team see this post support is with Android Pie 9.0 or with separate update. I know its easy with to supported small update or with monthly updates with security batch updates.

 

Here a link for many fonts for Xperia :

I already installed in my Xperia xz premium, I saw the option with few fonts, but if I want to change the font, after restarting the device not changing (need to be edited in software )
