Japanese font weight shortage

Japanese font weight shortage

I use SGP621 Android ver6.01

I also use Xperia Z3 (docomo SO-01G ,Japan)


SO-01G is installed full-weight Japanese Font set (5 or 6 weight)

ソニーモバイルUDゴシック or Sonymobile UD Gothic (Sans?)


but SGP621 is not. Probably only 2 weight Japanese fonts in it.


I often see same website in both devices,

so this difference makes  incompatibility for me.

specially, when I see websites used light-weight Japanese font,

I feel big frustration! it's not smart.


If you can, I hope to improve this issue next update

I think it's easy to do it, and makes big differences!

Re: Japanese font weight shortage

thx to message me

surely I want this issue to be known by Sony develop team.

(I don't know how.)

but raising this issue on Support forum, Many people get to know about this.

I'd like to know how other people feels about it.

At least one person thinks SGP 621 (probably all Z3 tablet compact)

has a defect about Japanese font problem.
