That depends on your stock keyboard. Gboard is a great option now (especially since the Dec 2016 update).
I used nothing but SwiftKey for about 2 years but was always bothered by certain things, like the aggressive spacing after periods. Trying to text somebody a web address was always frustrating. Gboard handles that better.
I've tried others and keep coming back to "Gboard - the Google Keyboard":
It does everything I want and I do not have to worry about it being spyware and stealing my passwords, logins, etc.
Try the Google Keyboard. It beats the shit out of the Samsung one.
Also, if you really want to enjoy Android, check out r/Tasker. This is the ultimate automation app which can do just about anything you want your phone to do when a certain condition is met.
When my girlfriend really needs to get a hold of me and my phone is on silent, I'm asleep, or whatever, I have it set to ring really loud when she texts me "911". But it can do a LOT of more complicated things than that.

I find Google Keyboard (or Gboard as it's recently been renamed to) to be the easiest for both. First thing I installed when I got this phone and haven't switched from it since.
Get the "Gboard" update here if the Play Store listing is still called Google Keyboard for you.
Too keep this simple for people, this is a skinned keyboard of the "stock" Google Keyboard.
Personally, I prefer the stock keyboard over others, and now that I have Chrooma, I set the skin to #000000. I'm one really happy AMOLED user right now.
I live in Ireland, the euro is my currency. However there's no English language that has € on the front board, using UK English I gotta go into numbers/symbols and long press on £ to pull up the € character.
It's great that I have Irish as an option, but I'm practically illiterate there...
The word prediction engine? You mean the Samsung Keyboard? Just download Google Keyboard ( [link] ) or Swiftkey ( [link] )
Keyboard: Google Keyboard
Google Keyboard has settings that allow you to have different levels of auto-correct, including turning it completely off.
It looks like you have the default Samsung keyboard. I believe it is possible to turn predictions on for it, but I recommend getting Gboard instead, it's a much better keyboard. Also, it's the keyboard in the first picture. Here's the Play Store link.

jk but seriously, I think Google's own Gboard is hard to top. It's got just about everything: intelligent suggestions, fluid and accurate gesture typing (accurate at least in English), support for a huge array of languages and even dialects, a simple theming engine, a sleek minimalistic design, voice typing, etc etc. Also Google search is baked into the keyboard itself. It's great for both gesture typing and tap typing

You could try a different keyboard app, for example gboard is the Google one. I personally haven't had any problems with it, however I've heard some complaints on /r/android about predictive text. Alternatively I've heard some good things about SwiftKey
Feedback sound on Google Keyboard isn't that bad to me. Ask me about the stock keyboard on Android 4.x and I'd agree with you.

Classic Google. Why can't this be part of the already available Google Keyboard? No, we have to make 5 different apps.
You could always use a different keyboard, if you're not attached to the VZW one. I would recommend Gboard (Google Keyboard) or Swiftkey. These both have better autocorrect functionality. Also, I know that Gboard allows you to disable the automatic word replacement feature. Swiftkey surely also has a similar option.
Gboard - the Google Keyboard 4/5 stars (12,56,593 ratings)
Gboard has everything you love about Google Keyboard—speed and reliability, Glide Typing, voice typing, and ...
He can change to a different keyboard. I personally prefer the plain Google keyboard. Has the mic button in the upper right. [link]
This works on Android as well, if you are using Google's own Android Keyboard. It probably works on others as well, but there are too many keyboard apps available for me to definitively say it works on all of them.
download gboard(made by google) it's a better android keyboard and gives you a key to bring up the emoji keyboard.
I'm using Google keyboard with Flat Style Colored Keyboard and is perfect for me
Personally, I've been using the Google Keyboard on my previous Android and my S6 because it's quite similar to the stock iPhone one and has Swype inbuilt.
I don't think linkme works round these parts but I've got you
I'd say you switch to Google Keyboard and improve your typing experience entirely with their Material Light or Material Dark option for a sexy keyboard.
There are enough bilingual people in the world such that if you have your device configured correctly, it's super fast to switch. For example, I'm using the Gboard on my Android device with two languages enabled. I can switch keyboard layouts with on tap of the globe that is right next to the space. Even if I don't want to bother switching the layout, it is smart enough to give me suggestions in both of my languages.

So suggestion/question: did you already download Gboard and set that under Current keyboard?
Also: which version of the H990DS does she have? Can be found under:
On newer versions on Android and iOS, you can use gif keyboards like Gboard to search for them
The Google Keyboard can do swype texting. You can install that from the Play Store on any phone.
A number of other free keyboards integrate it as well.
Generally either of these keyboards are way superior than the old prediction technology in the Galaxy S3. I use the Google Keyboard personally.
It seems the update is starting to push out, the update day appears as today on desktop.
It's an update to Google Keyboard either way.
It's not possible to switch between them officially but if you have a rooted phone you can use WA Tweaks to switch.
If you want more GIFs you can also use GBoard Google keyboard to search for GIFs everywhere and send it in WhatsApp in one click.

Disclaimer: I don't claim to know what I'm talking about.
> *Should we keep on adding services to the keyboard, or we should focus just on one service such as payments on the keyboard, or e-commerce on the keyboard.
My first thought on seeing this is that you'll be competing with Gboard (Google's keyboard), so you'll need a better proposition than a "smart keyboard that does things". Hence, I would pick one specific service or area and get really good at that, rather than having the keyboard do a lot of things. The "keyboard that helps you save" (for instance) sounds a hella lot more appealing than "the smart keyboard", particularly in the context of competing against Gboard.
> *Should we restrict this idea to the keyboard, or try to implement this on Quickball (assistive touch) kind of thing, which could be accessible throughout the phone rather than just messaging services.
I would just pick one thing, otherwise it's putting too much too quickly on your plate. If you had to pick one (custom keyboard or quickball thing) which one would do the job best? Then stick to that.
> *What should be our monetizing plan.
I would suggest none (for now). If you can afford it, I would try and get a few thousand people to use it and give feedback before you start thinking about monetizing it. Eventually if you get people using it you can always add premium features on top, but at this stage you need to find out if people want it first and foremost.
(Also, uh, this sub is /r/hwstartups, for hardware startups, you should have probably posted on /r/startups instead)
> Would love to hear what people think about things like location sharing.
Location sharing would be troublesome for subs like /r/gonewild and we would prefer it not be an option. If people want to share their location they can use other ways, which gives people a little hurdle to cross before they give it out, giving them a bit more time to really think about it and wonder if it's the right thing to do.
But do add Gboard functionality, IE make sure it works with Gboard. Some apps like snapchat don't allow full gboard functionality, for example adding gifs, google search/translate/maps etc right in chat.
It probably depends on your version, but on my Note 4, it's under the keyboard's settings > "My hot keys" > then 0-9 can become shortcuts when long pressed.
That said, Google's keyboard is available to everyone and I'd totally recommend it, personally. You can still have a dedicated number row, which is what kept me on Samsung's for a long time.
You may also like Google Keyboard.
What version of Android are you on?
If below 4.4, you'll have to update Google Keyboard every time manually. 4.4 made Google Keyboard a must-have on most phones IIRC, and you can update the app from here.
Maybe Google keyboard got uninstalled or disabled?
Or some settings were turned off on your Samsung keyboard ?
This sounds like an issue with your keyboard. Which keyboard are you currently using?
If you don't mind switching, you can try out Google Keyboard or SwiftKey Keyboard and see if the problem goes away.
Around Android 4.4, they added this: [link]
Make sure you have Google's keyboard installed (above link). As in the description, you either get an emoji icon on the bottom right corner, or can hold return to get it. Using these emoji, you can add weird dogs and snowmen to just about anywhere. You can even use them in note titles I think.
About the first suggestion, the google keyboard has a handy voice to text option. See the second image here [link]
AOSP keyboard is basically a stripped down version of the Google Keyboard, which is the one with all the new gestures and themes.
Try clearing the app's cache then data
If that doesn't work, try factory reset (will delete everything on the phone)
if you don't want to factory reset, try using Google Keyboard
See that G button on the left? If you are using g-board ( [link] ) you'll have that customization option after you press it.
This still says Google Keyboard for me, but the screenshots show Gboard. I'll try updating it.
EDIT: The app is Gboard, which is an updated Google Keyboard. It's the same app. I think my keyboard is smaller now. I'm gonna have to mess with settings.
Actually, Google themselves are doing lots of work in language support. I noticed this morning that the Google Keyboard supports Zulu and Xhosa inputs.
I have never used the standard keyboard tbh, have you tried Gboard (Google Keyboard)? I have had no problems with it, before or after the update. Gboard in the Play Store
Use a different keyboard like GBoard from Google. I've had problems with built-in keyboards on LG and Samsung too. Also make sure there aren't any system updates available.
Use Gboard, Google's new keyboard. There's a gesture option in there to enable cursor movement by swiping left or right along the spacebar. Another one of the gesture options is a "mass delete" where you swipe left on the backspace and it highlights whole words to delete.
I don't believe it's possible with the Samsung keyboard. Your best bet is to install a separate one, such as Google's. It has a comma to the right of the spacebar, as well as gifs and built in search. There are also options such as Swiftkey, if that doesn't work for you.
Yeah, the first two are just phones that are semi-modular (or fully modular) where you can potentially add in a slide-out keyboard using the modularity. The 2015 Fairphone (Android) might also go that route.
If you just want a keyboard, and don't care about it being a slide out one, then there are more options (like the BlackBerry Passport, which runs Android apps), but keyboards in general on phones are kinda disappearing (as most people are ok with using and onscreen input method like Google Keyboard's swipe input), and any specific version of physical keyboards are going to be increasingly hard to find.
(((GBoard))) is okay if you don't mind the botnet
F-Droid has some keyboards if you want something open source
A week or two ago, I posted that this Android keyboard began supporting Korean input, but I didn't realize that it was only in the beta version of the app. Now Korean is available in the normal version on the Play Store!
> Why is there no other app that can do this?
All notepad/memo and text input apps can do it if you use a keyboard that supports microphone input.
Google Gboard specifically supports a voice typing mode.
It's an app available for Android on the Google Play store--no idea of they offer it on other OSes.
I initially got it when I had a cheapo phone that didn't offer an emoji keyboard--Gboard did, and for free, no ads (and Google probably already has everyone's private info), but I've found it to be great at handling switching between languages and offering lots of layouts for both Latin alphabets and other writing systems.
If you're connected to google play and have no keyboard, you could try going to the google play site on your computer and remotely having it install google keyboard, it might set it to the default keyboard.
You need a compatible keyboard, make sure the Google Keyboard version is 4.1.23103.2297020
Or tell someone to send you a new emoji, the taco for example.
edit: the one I have is 4.1.23103.2419427 with the new emojis in 6.0.1
Isso depende do teclado, o teclado (predefinido) pode variar da marca e nem sempre tem um bom corretor ortográfico.
Experimenta o Google Keyboard ou Swiftkey.
Uso o Swiftkey não tenho problemas grandes com corretor ortográfico, mesmo palavras que não exista ele aprende com o que escreves.
Em relação aos espaços isso pode ser configurado, colocar ou não automaticamente um espaço ao inserir pontuação.
Só não uso Swiftkey num terminal ou para escrever algo mais técnico, para isso uso Hacker's Keyboard.
You're talking about the Software keyboard right? Have you tried a different keyboard? Maybe the Gboard which is developed by Google?
I use the stock Google Keyboard on my Nexus 6. The swipe function works great for me. You can add it to any Android phone though: [link]
It's GBoard, you can download it here.
Also, even if it was part of the OS, they have different teams working on different parts of the OS. Why wouldn't they be allowed update it?
•Spigen makes a good case, and cheap, but isnt good for long-term single hand use (driving).
•In camera settings select photo size.
One does download it on the google play store. It is called gboard ([link]). After downloading, one needs to set it as default input method.
Oh a Huawei? I don't have one I can play around with so I am not 100% sure where all the symbols are but you do have the option of switching to an alternate keyboard such a Gboard.
Hey OP, if you aren't already, I suggest using the Google Keyboard
It looks, and runs much better than all other keyboards on android.
You can install Google's keyboard from the Play Store these days. It's pretty reliable, has swipe typing, and dictation built in. I'd recommend trying it out!
I didn't hit save. I promise it will work now. I also added some flair for posts. If you think I should add more flair to either just let me know.
What I was talking about for the forums being buggy is on my phone. I can't type at all on my phone I have never had a problem on any website ever on this keyboard I have had since it came out Gboard which is by Google. It's something to do with their text field, and if I am on my PC, I am gaming or doing homework. So, if I am on my phone, that's when I normally get on Reddit and my forums.
The default Samsung keyboard on the S5 is really intrusive, but switching to the Google Keyboard, it's barely noticeable which pleases the lovers and haters in my family.
Then I'm thinking it's actually something with the way the keyboard is sending emojis. Are you using the three dots in BlackBerry Keyboard to enter emojis?
If so, for the sake of testing, can you please install Gboard: [link]
Once installed, slide down from the top and switch from BlackBerry Keyboard to Gboard, then type the emojis there.
You should really use something like Gboard (Android) or Gboard (IOS) and start swiping. Really, we can't read what you're typing.
Sounds like it's just a swipe input method.
You can swap the keyboard out for any one you'd like. I recommend Google's.
Oh whoops. That's weird, it seems that Samsung's stock keyboard doesn't support shortcuts. You can try installing Gboard, because I have the Personal Dictionary menu with that as the default keyboard.
>...prefably the width of the screen.
Uh, isn't that just a normal sized keyboard?
If you use the Google Keyboard you can adjust the size of the one-handed keyboard.
The Google Keyboard has a much nicer typing sound compared to the AOSP keyboard, but they look and work pretty much the same.
Use GBoard for typing, and then hold down the spacebar to switch to Google Handwriting Input. Unless I've misunderstood and you're talking about the animated message thing.
Yeah, I think there used to be two different apps, google keyboard being the one without the search features. But this is the one
Tu cherches quoi comme type de clavier, à part un français correct ? Le clavier "officiel" c'est Gboard de Google. Personnellement, venant de Windows Phone, je préfère celui de BlackBerry que tu peux sideloader d'ici
Also you've probably already checked it out, but I use Google's keyboard and I like it enough, hopefully it works better for you. Not sure if it's a popular choice around here or not though. The vertical scrolling thing may be something you can set in certain launchers, you could probably Google which support vertical scrolling. But if you need help with any of this feel free to ask and I can help where I can. I'm still kind of new to the customization and stuff of Android but if I can answer questions I totally will.
This one : [link]
When you hold spacebar, it allow you to choose the keyboard (for exemple to select swiftkey), BUT it also list other google keyboard language that you have enabled in option (disable system language option to enable multiple language).
I've tried many keyboards over the years, have been Swiftkey for 2,5 years and recently switched to Google Keyboard, because of the seperation of languages, which was important for me. I can recommend both!
Then blame your carrier and/or device manufacturer, and install a different keyboard. The Google keyboard works this way, and the stock android keyboard should work this way if one of the modifications your carrier/mfr made didn't change it. It works on my phone and on my tablet.
Alternatively, you can copy/paste a linebreak from elsewhere.
It does have an on-screen keyboard, but I don't think it's the same as the Google Keyboard that is available on the Play Store (this one), which is the default for Android?
There are also a bunch of other official keyboard from Google that I'd really like to use on the Chromebook (for other languages), and learning how to get the main Google Keyboard working would hopefully get those other ones working as well!
Edit: added link to play store
Google actually started to support stickers not long ago with Gboard. It doesn't seem like many companies are jumping in other than Disney at the moment though.
I prefer Google's GBoard for most uses, and hacker's keyboard for any time I might need a full layout.
Thanks for the super detailed response! I personally think Spotify is kind of overpriced - however, even if I was prepared to pay for Spotify premium I'll miss the small details that iOS offers.
I noticed that memory management is excellent on iPhone (when compared w/S8) and multitasking is much faster as well. All of this is achieved with weaker hardware, which is impressive. Example
I currently use Gboard as my primary keyboard, it's super fast and has cool features like sending links, gifs and searching Google for information or images straight from the keyboard. I checked and it's on both platforms, so that's not a problem.
>there's usually A LOT of variety on the Play Store .. even if there are other 20 apps that look like crap
You reminded me of something else, I despise the Play Store! It just feels like the App Store's ugly sibling.
I guess I'll just wait and see. I'm more of a cosmetic person when it comes to phones, so I hope Apple takes a few notes from the S8's front design (the back is just horrible).
Nope my phone have this shit too https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.inputmethod.latin&hl=en
You can use different keyboard apps, which would change the look and behavior of the keyboard.
For example, Google Keyboard and SwiftKey Keyboard might be different in terms of auto-correct aggressiveness.
Install the Google keyboard.
Swiping left starting at the backspace button deletes whole words based on how many letters you swipe across on the keyboard. Swipe to "M" to delete one whole word, swipe to the "N" to delete two whole words, the "B" to delete three and so on.
Additionally, swiping across the space bar scrolls the cursor.
They have also added a compact one handed keyboard setting for people with larger screens.
I'm sorry but there's no easy way to downgrade without at least using a computer. Search for your phone model along the word downgrade on Google and you should be able to find a procedure.
I'm not sure which version of Android you're now at, so I can't tell exactly why your don't see your notifications on your lock screen.
For your keyboard issue you could try a different keyboard like Google Keyboard.
For YouTube video links you might have set a default program by accident to handle these links automatically. You can go in your system settings, go to the app section and sekect the app you're having issues with. You'll be able to clear default actions for specific links for that app.
To access Reddit are you using an app or the mobile website? If it's the later it might be the web browser that doesn't render correctly. Are you using Google Chrome?
In regards to the keyboard, have you taken a look at google's own keyboard? It has solid color options and is much better than LG's keyboard IMO. You can also place a picture in it and make it darker. I'm talking about GBoard.
It's probably Gboard (new name of the Google Keyboard). It has multilanguage suggestions since the latest update in December.
