    I was wondering if anyone else is having a font issue with the default Android calculator. Even after numerous factory numbers on the calculator buttons are too large and off center from the buttons. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Welcome to Android Forums Jonah Hill. It is an honor to be in the e-presence of a Hollywood star. How's McLovin? :D
    Hehehehe just kidding around.

    It's a "feature" :D

    No, honestly it was designed like that on purpose, for accessibility's sake and 'style' probably.
    Same calculator as seen in HTC Sense 3.

    If it does not float your boat, I'm sure there is something in the market with a font that pleases your eye, or maybe there is a root mod/ROM of some sort that is better suited.

    Did you run the OTA? I know my calculator wasnt small to begin with, but after the OTA it got super large. I noticed it earlier and thought maybe I was seeing things. Glad to see I am not alone.

    It shipped like that. I know mine is that way.

    Can you see the bottom of all #'s? The 3/5/6/8/9 cut off the bottom

    I know. That's how they designed it to look.

    It's terrible looking and looks almost broken

    I was flipping through the widgets list yesterday and noticed the htc Calculator widgets are all more or less conventional looking (no weird fonts or clipping). So if you feel like adding/sacrificing/wasting an entire home screen panel, it may work as a decent basic solution.
