    My Virgin Mobile LG Stylo 3 's system font now has a horrid white color and black outline that is hideous to read. I've read forums and hacks all over the place trying to fix this. I don't have enough experience to root my phone to change it. It showed up after an update shortly after I purchased the phone. It is running Nougat. I have taken a screen shot of what I see, if there's a place to upload it here, I will.

    Go to Settings>Accessibility​ and make sure High Contrast Text is turned off.

    Yes, this is off. All the accessibility options are off. Why is my system font outlined?-31961677_1802384006487058_8149965886023794688_o.jpg

    Here are some of the things I've tried: Themes from the Smart World option, didn't change the system font. Various font apps for unrooted Android; usually gave me a message that says you have to have a rooted phone, rebooting the phone which dropped my Nova Launcher wall paper so I reinstalled it, GoLauncher didn't change the system font (which also put an unGodly amount of adds so uninstalled that too). I believe it has something to do with the update. I didn't notice the hideous font before that.

    Strange -- that really looks like it's from the High Contrast Text option. Are any Developer Options turned on? Is this seen throughout all apps, or only in the Messaging app?

    Also, does this persist in Safe Mode? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-34688

    Thank B. Diddy. I had similar issue and turning the high contrast text off fixed it.
