    Just noticed Webview was updated as of 10.31.2016 - "What's new?" includes "Bug Fixes and Performance."

    Downloaded it - seems to have fixed the problem (fingers crossed.)

    Good news! But it still shows up as being last updated 10/19/16 on my wife's Note5. I'll have to check again in the next couple of days.

    Seems Google (was responsible and) has solved the bug, the Beta version of Android System Webview in Play Store (v. 55.0.2883.36) is working fine with Samsung Keyboard again. The current version (54.0.2840.68) has the problem.

    Thanks all! Was having the same problem (brackets were driving me particularly nuts!). The Webview fix worked for me too...

    Open your Play Store app, search for Android System Webview, then tap Uninstall. It will ask you if you want to revert to the factory version -- say yes.

    Signed up just to say thank you so much for this fix! My father was ready to throw his tablet out the window over this bug. I uninstalled the android system webview - will it need to be reinstalled at a later date or will new updates cover it?

    I would keep checking the Android System Webview app page in the Google Play Store, and update it again when the current version is beyond 10/19/16. It's still a good idea to keep Android System Webview updated if possible, because it also includes security patches.

    I noticed several people mention yahoo mail in here and I had just installed yahoo mail before this started. Out of curiosity I removed the yahoo mail app and the problem went away. Looks like the yahoo mail app is causing the bug.

    Nooo, Android Webview is causing it! Yahoo mail is probably using webviews, like Google Inbox. But any other app using webviews should present the problem! (Of course, if you unistall all apps using webview, it dissappears! ;-) )

    My contact within Samsung tells me that this is Android System Webview issue. Google identified the problem and released a fix in version 54.0.2840.82 or higher. If you have an auto-update enabled, you should have gotten this update already. If you are not in a position to upgrade, then reverting Android Webiew back to factory default version would resolve the issue.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Folk's I am having the same issue as stated above I have uninstalled the webview and that did not solve the issue (I have also cleared the partition cache just in case) additionally I have downloaded another keyboard app to check with the same results, re-installed and uninstalled the webview app to be sure it was uninstalled properly. Some reports say it is only issue when typing emails in my case it is everything, text, web, and so on. One other issue but nor sure related but seem to have started at the same time is with not receiving all of my texts. I use Textra and it's been flawless until the double letter thing which only happens to the bottom row of keys on the keyboard.

    Thanks in advance

    HI, glad I found your response, bc like you, uninstalling the Web View app did not solve the problem - but, I was found the culprit in my case: Gboard. I enabled that and selected the Samsung board

    The problem I was having was simular to other posters except mine was "last" of words repeated itself when I used the backspace key to make a correction. It would do this even if I moved the cursor a few spaces forward before trying to delete the double letter. However, I noticed it was doing this on maybe the 4th or 5th letter in a sentence.

    I hope this helps someone experiencing the same.

    I see you have the Note 5 I have the S6 Edge and I cannot find on my device the GBoard. I will do some searches but where is the option located I do not have it where I would anticipate in the language and input selection.

    Thank you

    I am not she / he but I noticed Gboard in my Applications a few days ago. It's the new name for the Google Keyboard, and while I can't remember on a past Samsung if it's also installed by default, you should find it listed in Applications ( Manager) but no icon in the App Drawer (though I thought there was).

    If it's not selectable in Language and Input as an alternative keyboard or you still have Google keyboard there you can update / download Gboard from the Play Store.
