On the Android side you *definitely* can use your own fonts.
*I* do.
Coolreader 3, Moon Reader, and FBreader all can. Probably others.
Coolreader has a zillion options and it lets you tweak the antialiasing, too, to adjust to your display's nature and characteristics. One of the reasons it's my reader of choice these days.
No, you can't install your own font into Stanza or Bluefire.

So, are you saying you can install your own font into Coolreader, Moon Reader, and FBreader and are not limited to their own in-app options?** If I want Adobe Garamond to be in all my books, all I have to do is install it into Moon Reader? That's news to me. If so, just one more reason a serious reader of books who's picky about formatting and fonts should go with Android over iOS.

You cannot do that on iOS.

**As opposed to simply having an embedded font in an epub show up which is not the same thing.
