    So for some reason all of my system fonts have become messed up. Showing up like "üñīñstãl"

    (Note, that's not letter for letter what it says but similar)

    Welcome to Android Central! That's interesting -- I saw another recent post about it. The person's phone was an obscure Chinese brand. Which one do you have?

    I have an LG G5. The issue only began a couple of weeks ago. Not quite sure why

    Bingo! I found out what it was.

    Somehow the system language had changed to 'English (XA)'

    I'm not sure how this happened as I haven't personally changed it, but I had recently changed my keyboard to gboard (Google's keyboard) so maybe this changed something in the process.

    So yeah, if anyone else is experiencing the same issue, take a look at your languages.
