If you've rooted your device, the quick and easy way I found was to get Font Installer and search the internet for Arial Unicode MS.ttf -Make sure to do a Nandroid backup before screwing with the system fonts. Bad things can happen. Here's a test page that contains Unicode characters not supported by Android's default font set: http://users.otenet.gr/~gmcr/...

If you merely changed the font, then you can simply look at /etc/system_fonts.xml to see which font it's set to use. If you have a good file manager and a good text editor, then you can just browse to the file and look. You might need to make a copy on your SD card and rename the copy to end in .txt. If you actually replaced a system font file, then you'll ...

Caveat: The exact files and format vary between Android versions. In both Android O and P (at least on LineageOS), the correct file is /etc/fonts.xml, and it has a warning not to use it. As of writing, I don't have any devices on Q to test with. So consider this answer historical even if it's still useful. Warning as of Android P's fonts.xml (see here for ...

It looks like a glitch in the font rendering process. If it is an in memory glitch, you may be able to resolve it by restarting the device. If it persists across restarts, then it is possibly either a corrupted font file or there's a bug in the font loader. In either case, you'd want to try to see if a restart resolves it.

I believe the font is called Droid. A few variations (sans, sans mono, serif, condensed) are available from DroidFonts.com, though it should be noted that Droid Sans may be the only to contain Chinese characters. Each of the Droid fonts was custom designed by Ascender and optimized for on-screen legibility with the Android platform. ... [Droid Sans] ...
