    I have a Huawei P10 lite and the operating system is Android 7.0 Nougat. I type in French and when I go to write a text message in French, I can see all the accented letters appear on the screen, but the moment I press send, some of the accents disappear (e.g. ê, î, ç). The accent aigu and grave (é and è) don't disappear. I have tried several keyboards with the French language pack installed, including SwiftKey and Gboard, nothing works. I had a Huawei Ascend Mate 2 before this and didn't have a problem. Seems to be an encoding issue, but I don't how to fix it. Thank you in advance!

    To send those accents, SMS has to use Unicode encoding, and your SMS app may not do Unicode (it should, it's standard - you're just limited to 70 characters per block of message, instead of 160). It's not the keyboard, it's the SMS app. Try a different SMS app (like GoSMS).

    (And make sure the ROM is the French 7.0, not an American or UK 7.0.)

    Also check the settings in your SMS app. Some of the apps have a toggle switch to remove/keep the accents on the special characters.
