[Android] Lines of kanji are too thick


#1

If you run the website in a browser on a smartphone, the lines of a kanji can be too thick if the kanji has many strokes or lines close to each other. The kanji that you learn in level 1 or 2 are simple and are readable, though.

My smartphone is a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

Have you tried the apps?
This is the one I use personally. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tr.xip.wanikani
I haven’t had your problem so I don’t know if its the phone itself but its worth a try.

I also used the Webbrowser on my Nexus 6 (1440x2560 same as with the S6 Edge+) and haven’t had this Problem.
After Level 2 i switched to the App mrgameraidz pointed to above.

Nontheless i still see a lot of Kanji in Android Chrome Browser because of KaniWani (Reverse WaniKani, it doesn’t have an App) and its all fine.

EDIT: I did however install Kanji fix for Android. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ascendtv.kanjifix&hl=de
Basically Android uses Chinese Kanji by default. So seeing a Certain Kanji that differs even slighty between Chinese and Japanese will result in maybe mistaking it between Sessions / Reviews on Wanikani via Desktop or Mobile phone. So maybe it’ll also fix your issue?

 I personally prefer this app over that one: here. Can be worth trying out both :)

I use that one too. I actually have both but never really got into the other one. 

I've never had any problems with Kanji on my Nexus 5 either by app or browser, and I haven't installed any "fix".

it could be a fonts problem, among other fonts problems you might not even know you have like androids defaulting to chinese
in this case though i’d be thinking of something along the lines of accessibility options amping the font size
