    @infinitempg I get what you're saying, but improving notifications also includes the functionality of those - grouping notifications for an app, expanding that group to act on individual notifications, etc.

    On Nexus devices, the size of things on the screen can be adjusted (I earlier posted a screenshot of my notification shade with the slider set to make everything as big as possible). I believe Samsung has chosen to either move that slider or not offer it at all.

    The size of the text on my Nexus 5X did not change when I updated to Nougat, so as others have said, this is not an overall Nougat issue, but an issue with the device specific version.

    Thank God I am not the only one. I hated the tiny notifications font. Filling up the entire notification area. It is in fact not better at all. Only this was even the reason I downgraded to MM again. It seems things are only getting worse. I can't imagine anyone thinking this is better?? What kind of people are these devs? I know it is Personal but even with a bigger font. So much test fit into a small area going to the very edge of the screen. That is just stupid. Doesn't contribute to readability!!

    I have a Samsung S6. I agree the font in the shade is too small and doesn't respond to changing the font size in the device settings. I paid Samsung $1.79 and downloaded a thicker/darker font and set it as the default for the device and now the notifications in the shade is easier to read. The font is Kabel.

    Annoying. Horrible. Dumb idea android.
    It's not readable. Even if the font is larger it's horribly unorganized, horrible variation between various applications notifying.

    If I buy a charcoal truck with a large heads up display I am not happy being forced to wake up to a periwinkle pastel truck with small display. That's not progressive change, that's stupid business. You really want us to switch to iPhones?!!! This has to stop. I need a phone for business, this was a stupid move a kid would like. Not a business professional

    Notification font seems more than large enough to me.

    Of course you can make it extremely tiny too!

    Go into developer options and adjust minimum width. Nougat brought custom display scaling, I'm surprised no one on here knew this.

    Yes I too have same problem. All the forums reies are same to adjust the font or zoom or accessibility but none of these work . My phone is galaxy s6 .I had marshmallow ver6 it is . I let it do what looked like a granular update (they never tell you is it a major change) and to my HORROR it reduced my lovely S6 to what looks like stock android that looks more like a cheap China phone. I called samsung and it seems android are flexing there muscles on all makers to conform . It has lost all the fantastic features I loved about Samsung like the BIG colour icons and BIG notification and the ULTRA battery saver feature that makes the phone behave like JUST a phone basic internet but tripped battery life .
    So upset about this so I will be flashing my phone back to marshmallow ver 6.01 after I buy a used S6 then sell this S6 with Nougat on eBay. I will no longer buy Samsung now as they managed to make a wonder front end that made android behave as comfortable as the IPHONE so guess what I'm buying next. Even though I like android with Samsung I cannot tollerat it's microscopic text that only works if you have 20 20 vision . Half the population have glasses . What were they thinking . Probable the same idiotic team who thought up Windows 8 no start button is my guess.

    The min width only adjusts everything bigger and then makes things one does not want bigger. It distorts the screen so some buttons go off screen .it's nothing different from the display option . What customers want it to set JUST the Notification area to bigger txt
    I am flashing my s6 back to marshmallow and if android don't fix this supit screw up I along with many middle age with less than perfect eyes will be moving to Apple . That's half the population so I bet Apple share just climbed a bit

    It's because you most likely wear contacts or have 20 20 vision or and are under 40.
    Half the population cannot see the notifications and apple shares just went up is my guess as I am going to Apple even though I loved android once .
