I just got a new phone, an LG G5. This being my first smartphone, I of course wanted to try out all the emoji (There are tons on this thing!). I sent a bunch of emoji to my girlfriend, and she was able to see them all perfectly fine (on an Alcatel One Touch Fierce). However, when she tried to respond with emoji from her phone, they appear as normal characters. For example, her penguin emoji translates to <(') when sent. Is there any way to have her phone send actual emoji? Or will she just be stuck with emoji that send as normal characters?
Thanks in advance,
