    I'm am avid reader of books and went to a Kindle years ago. I use my tablet for my Bible reading. When conversing with others as to why the switch I tell them when paper books start coming with a font size menu option I'll go back to paper.
    I've got a Note4 and the fonts in my menus could stand to be bigger instead of smaller. I take screen shots of app descriptions so I can pinch zoom them large enough to read sometimes.

    I read a lot on my phone. I read on a Sony Clie back before smartphones. I find reading on a device is so convenient, especially reading in bed.

    I do a lot of Bible reading on my phone too.

    I did this the other day so I could have the condensed version and love it! I wish it wasn't a hidden setting and hope we also see it in the final build of Android N for all phones.

    It is pretty great. I've been using it for a few days now and love it.

    As Lonewolfarcher said so well above, this setting isn't for everyone :)

    That is what is so great about having the choice...Android N has it so that there are more than standard and condensed which I think will be nice as you get a wider range to choose from...

    I'd like to have this size on allergy days. I set my Kindle to ludicrous with bold font on those days

    In Android N, the size range seems decent... Hopefully it'll encompass all of us ... The bottom screen is the smallest and the top screen is the largest... There are a few options in between which is nice since Samsung on the S7 series only offers normal or condensed in the hidden settings.

    On the largest I could make out the conversations but not the time and date of them without tapping and pinch zooming.
    Thanks for the screen shots .
