    The first time I signed into my Android device with my Google account, I accidentally clicked on Malay instead of English. Now, whenever I take out the battery, off the phone or reboot it, it reverts back to Malay language and I have to manually change it back to English. Is there a way for me to change my default language to English permanently?

    Welcome to Android Central! So the default System Language always goes back to Malay after a reboot, even if you change the default System Language in the System Settings? What device do you have?

    Dear B.Diddy,
    Thank you very much for your reply. I'm using a Doogee X5 Max. I face the same problem even when I change to other android models. I think it's coz it's tied to my Google account login. It's always stuck on Malay language and I've to manually change to English every time. I've tried all kinds of way to no avail. Even my friends who are in the IT line are stumped on this matter.

    Try going to myaccount.google.com on your computer browser and click Language & Input Tools (under Account Preferences). Is it set to Malay there? If so, change it to English, and see if that helps.

    My Google account has always been English. Just to update, u do not know what I did right or wrong, but today I changed to another phone. When I first logged in with my Google account, the first thing it did was ask me to choose language. Now I'm back to English. Hooray!
