    There is a place in settings that of course hold the default font which kind made me believe that this software will support different fonts that can be added within that font setting. Does anyone know if there are any other fonts supported and if so, please post the link to them from the play store if you don't mind. Thanks

    Yep, it does!
    Unfortunately, you can't find them in the Play Store and you have to install and download them manually. There's a thread of fonts on XDA that you can choose from to download.
    [NO_ROOT][EMUI4.X] FONT STYLES (updated) 05/… | Honor 8

    It's really easy to install. Check out this video on how to do it:


    It's the same steps regardless if you want to install a font or a theme.

    Hey my friend. Thank you for the great and helpful response. I really appreciate that. I'm about to hit that link and read through and hopefully have a couple new fonts after. The one thing I actually did like about Samsungs choppy and sticky software was that they had fonts to buy or were free. I had found one in particular I used so I was hoping to find a similar one for the Honor. Thanks again man!

    If you use a non-stock font, some UI elements might show up as strange symbols or Chinese characters instead of their usual icons (biggest example: Real Racing 3)

    Hmm that's very interesting. I never knew this, it is probably font dependent. I haven't had any issues with a different font, including the whole symbol thing.

    Guys I am typically I'd say well rounded and much more knowledgeable about tech or software than the average or norm, but I've attempted several times to move the font to the proper area even after renaming it and I even watched that YouTube video several times to make sure I didn't type this post I'm typing now to this thread and appear to be an ***** lol. Somewhere and some how I'm clearly skipping a step but after several attempts I figured I'd defer back to you experts. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    If it helps, for me I found it easier to go to the thread I linked on my Honor 8 using CHROME, and download the font I want. Then I would go into the Files app->Local tab->Internal Storage->Download
    Select the file and tap menu. You will see the option of "rename". Rename the file type from .zip to .hwt. You'll probably have to move the cursor to be able to select the zip part. A warning will pop up, select OK, and then select it again. Tap the move button and select the folder you want to move it to (in this case, HWThemes). Tap "Move" again to drop the font in there. That's it, but I'm going to make another post of visuals to help you see where you might have went wrong.

    I'm about to use your directions now and get a couple of fonts I'm interested in. I'll report back in either a few minutes or hours. I have times where I'm grest with software and filtering through quickly then times I just keep shooting blanks. If I run into some road blocks I'll post back and let you know by my screen shots so you can advise me better of where im at or what I'm missing. Thanks again for the great detailed directions and more so for your time man.

    It worked! I'm still not quite sure at what exact step in the process I actually moved the font fille to themes so I'm about to grab another font and try and repeat what ever it was I just did by accident doing so correctly lol. I kept having to refer back to this thread from my file manger so I kind of became lost in the steps I took or the order of when it actually moved the font file.

    Yay!! Really glad to hear it!
    It's all good. Don't forget to download the EMUI default font to have the option to restore the original font.

    I find it easier to just use the Files app over an app from the app store.

    Finally got my second font downloaded and moved over to themes. That one took me some time as I still am not 100 percent on when it actually moved the file to themes but on the bright side I got the initial comic sans theme I was after moved and now applied. Like I said, thank you for your help and time. I could not have with confusion been able to get that done without your instruction and advisory. It is greatly appreciated man.

    Here's a screen shot of the font I was after. It's similar to a font I used for the short time I had my two samsung s7s which wasn't long due to the awful sticky and choppy touch wiz interface. Don't get me wrong. Samsung is great but do away with touch wiz and use a seamless software and I'd own another Samsung. Software interaction is just as important as performance and screen resolution is to me. Does this device support different Font?-1480825472592.jpg

    Thanks brother! Yeah it's a bit different but I've always enjoyed anything unique or different with taste. There was a font on Samsung's play store called Dave ribbons I think. It was similar to this. Not anything overboard but different enough to enjoy looking at. I had no idea that this device was capable of altering fonts until I came across a thread on the XDA site which then prompted me to post my question here as to how exactly to download and apply. Although I'm still unsure how exactly I was able to move both font files to the themes I now can always be looking around for cool looking different fonts. As for themes I'm using one from Honor's preloaded themes but replaced the wallpapers for home and lock screens. I think im using halo. I've not searched for other EMUI themes. Are there a collection of themes like there are fonts that you may know about. I'd like to really just change my icon pack out more than change this user theme. I'll do some digging on that but if you happen to know of some, please let me know if you don't mind. I thanks again brother.

    There is an iOS like theme on XDA as well too. I have used just the icons from that theme before. You install them the same way as you did with the fonts.

    In the theme editor, you have the option to just change the icons as well. There is a stockify theme in the play store that also can give you different icons I think. A cool thing about this is that you can apply the theme and then change the icons in the theme editor. That way, you get to have both. Same goes for fonts!

    You are the man! I'm still going through this tough customization learning curve since I only used Apple until about a year ago. Of course there is zero altering apple OS so basically I never had to teach myself much more than the surface of software. The development and ability to alter and tweak software has intrigued me so lately I've been more and more researching the how to but at the same time I've been careful not to get over my head in fear of damaging or messing up my phones. I'm tempted to root or jailbreak or exploit my Nexus 6p but I've not yet tried. Mostly been reading trying to take it all in before I attempt it. I can tell you without doubt the software on the Honor 8 to me is way more enjoyable than stock or pure Android. I like Honor's hybrid combination of IOS and Android personally.
