    So long story short, my old S4 died, I got sent a replacement. Now when I go on facebook, the size of the text is different, for example, if it's just a post with only text, it's big, and if the text is accompanied with anything else, a picture/link ETC. It's the size it normally is, any idea how fix this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is not the fault of your phone. It's the Facebook app, constantly updating and changing on a daily basis. Use your web browser instead....

    There's no fix because there's no problem.

    I beg to differ, before I got this replacement phone, all the text was the same size, now the text that isn't accompanied by a link/picture/video ETC, is much bigger than all the other text. It's infuriating and nearly makes the app unusable at times.

    I don't see what makes it unusable because of that. But the thing is, this is something obviously done by Facebook since it apparently only affects their app, hence, there's nothing we can do about it, other than wait for an update from them. Your claim that it worked differently in your previous phone is irrelevant. With the number of updates Facebook pushes, it could simply be they updated between you changing phones. If this eas something that's happening in other apps, it could have been an issue with Android that's resolvable. But since it's not, if there's no entry in thr Facebook settings for this, then it appears to be an intentional feature from Facebook, hence there is no 'problem' per se. It may be a problem from your point of view, but not an actual problem in the sense that there isn't anything broken.

    Correct, as there are no settings for text sizes within the app
