    Found the setting. Go to Settings>Accessibility>High Contrast Text​, and uncheck it.

    Welcome to Android Central! I haven't seen that myself on my Nexus 5. What apps are you seeing this in? Can you show us a screenshot? http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-central.html

    In the meantime, try wiping the system cache partition, which won't erase any personal data. This process can take 5-10 minute on a Nexus 5, so be patient. http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...-recovery.html

    I have the same issue. This is TERRIBLE!!!! The bold on every screen is an OUTLINE, black line on white background. How can this be changed? This is a screenshot here:

    Any idea why this has happened? This just happened to me yesterday. It's hard on the eyes especially when it's on a black background.
