Smartphone for Japanese

I believe the issue with Japanese fonts applies only if your phone locale is not set to Japanese. For instance if you have the phone set to English, then view a Japanese website, some of the characters will be the chinese versions. But if you have the phone set to Japanese, then you can see the normal Japanese characters.
I think I heard that this was finally fixed in Nougat, but I'm not sure.
Yeah, I can also confirm that setting your phone locale to Japanese fixes the font issue without rooting.
Thanks for clarifying guys! Here a list of SOME of the mis-rendered characters
