    I mean, Apple devices use the Gregorian calendar by default, but it can be changed to a Japanese calendar and back to a Gregorian calendar. But Android/Samsung devices only have the Gregorian calendar. Why isn't there a way to change the calendar format without installing a 3rd party app? Are there any Android/Samsung devices with a Japanese calendar instead of a Gregorian calendar or at least an option to change it?

    I'm not sure, maybe the ones sold over there, do have it.

    I guess they figured that most of the countries don't want/need a Japanese calendar. Not much demand, why do it?

    Again, that's only my guess.

    Even the Japanese, when conducting business with the west, use the Gregorian calendar. It's pretty much the "calendar franca" (not literally, since it's not the Frankish calendar, but in the "universal" meaning) for the entire world.

    To use the Japanese calendar on iPhone/iPad...

    Settings > General > International > Calendar format > Tap on Japanese calendar
