    Default swiftkey....

    Anyone just using the stock keyboard, I have yet to try it, have been using swiftkey, but it sometimes drags it seems to pop up or close, curious how bad or good the LG keyboard is.

    Are you using the new SwiftKey beta? I have never used SwiftKey and I have tried every version over the years, but I'm using it now. I used to be a thumbkeyboard lover but it was stopped being supported. The new options in SwiftKey are pretty nice. It detaches, resizes and combined phone and tablet. It was on front page recently of AC.

    And of course flo, same as swype.

    I tried using the stock LG keyboard when I first got my G2 and I couldn't stand it. The ASAP one is so much better. Bit aren't as good as SwiftKey IMO. SwiftKey's touch typing has greatly improved and the predictions are awesome once I learned how to use them. I installed beta today and it's even better!

    The keyboard is pretty good compare to Samsung's pos keyboard Lol. I love swift but it doesn't have emojis support. I like kii but it isn't as good and a lot of the auto corrects make no sense! I wish swift had emojis support. We have full emojis support on our phone and I do like to use it 😃

    I hate the stock keyboard...mainly because I always hit comma instead of space.

    I just downloaded Google keyboard and I like it 100% already.

    I've always used the stock Google keyboard but I decided to give SwiftKey a shot. So far I'm liking it, especially the options for customization.

    Google keyboard is great but no emoji support and I can't change the theme.

    I really like the stock keyboard for the simple reason it lets you set the two punctuation keys to the right of the space bar to whatever you want. If you press and hold it not only inserts the punctuation symbol you chose but those 2 keys STAY with whatever was the last symbol you chose as default until the next time you override. My big gripe with most keyboards is they never seem to have the punctuation symbols I want most so that is making me stick with stock for now.

    Oh, and I also like that when typing in landscape if you quickly swipe from the center out with your thumbs it splits to side keyboards, then if you want you can swipe your thumbs back together again and it's back to one big keyboard.

    You all should try Touchpal X. It's the best android keyboard in my opinion and it's free. Full features and all.

    I downloaded touch pal x and I love it! I really wish it would support all the emojis. I actually like it better then swift. It would also be nice if we could change the font but full emojis is a must! Hopefully they do it soon 😊

    The space bar on G2 stock is too small. I prefer the Android keyboard from the play store.

    Same here. Went back to SwiftKey after hitting the comma instead of the space about 50% off the time.
    Swiftkey rocks on this... Especially the new beta.

    The touchpal x devs have a thread on xda somewhere asking for user concerns/improvements. I can't seem to find it though. Maybe you can ask about emojis there. I want to say I saw someone asking about full emojis support when I was reading the thread.

    Thanks for all the feedback! I am trying googles keyboard right now. I love swiftkey and ya paid for the full version, well worth it, it just seems to lag at times on the G2, I was trying to see if I could a hard reset, but everyone says it will delete all your content on the phone, either way not a huge deal! I just have been using swiftkey since it literally came out. Time for change!

    This is the first phone I haven't installed swiftkey on. The stock keyboard swipes surprisingly well, supports emoji, and the themes aren't half bad.

    I downloaded TouchPal x and I love it! It's fast, no lag I love it better than swift because it has emoji support. Doesn't have all the emojis yet but I emailed the developer and they did state they will have them all soon.

    This. The fact that it is totally free is unbelievable.

    OK, I have the EXACT same problem. I like the LG keyboard other than this glaring issue.

    If I have the Nexus 7 2013, and enjoy the gesture typing, is there any reason to get SwiftKey? Also, does one license cover you for multiple devices? I have HTC DNA and Nexus 7 2013.

    Thanks in advance
