Unicode on Android

Could this be the issue that Android uses ISO-8859-1 as native encoding, which
doesn't support smart apostrophe, and has no characters defined at 146?
in which I was gently guided by Michael McCreary.
But I remain personally somewhat confused; although ISO-8859-1 may not have a
smart apostrophe, and Android may use ISO-8859-1, it's clearly not the case
that no Android app can display any character outside those in ISO-8859-1. So
further guidance and understanding would certainly be appreciated.
