    I like Swiftkey's themes and word predictions better, but if you have bigger fingers, the LG keyboard is bigger. Just a matter of preference.

    I've used SwiftKey since it was released. I used the LG keyboard for a few days. After a while predictions work fine, what I didn't like is the LG doesn't insert a space after the period! Lol. Besides that it's good.

    This is bugging me too, other than that I love the LG keyboard.

    Instead of the period. you double tap the space bar and it puts a period and then adds a space for you to start the next sentence.
    Ahh, have to try that.

    And to the right of the space bar, I set the two macros to '@' sign as well as '.' for entering urls.
    I stuck a comma to the left of the spacebar to simulate the SwiftKey layout. Not sure I'll stick with that though. I might need a question mark more. Wish there was an option for 3 punctuation macros.

    I wish I could have an extra macro key for a question mark or actually an emoticon key on the left like I had on my swift key but for what it is... Oem keyboard... It's really an impressive number of features and narrows the performance gap between good apps like swift key.

    Last year on the g2 keyboard I really wanted to like it cause it had a number row that swift key didn't have until the beta came out... But the keyboard was terrible and their predictive was terrible.

    I tried the LG keyboard mostly because I could resize it, but Swiftkey is the same size I would have chosen anyway. Swiftkey is much better at predicting the next word I want to use.

    I liked the G3 keyboard. But ended up going back to SwiftKey. Next word prediction is to nice for me to give up.

    Abit of both. Am using SwiftKey for predictions and a font pack downloaded from LG smartworld. I like how the font merged into SwiftKey.

    Never got into SwiftKey.

    Been using Thumb Keyboard since my EVO 4G days but I've been using the LG G3 keyboard since I got it on Friday and I really like it so far.

    I have the stock LG keyboard a shot when I first got the phone and I was impressed. It's a whole lot better than the stock Google keyboard. Ultimately, I switched back to SwiftKey. It's just a better keyboard app than any other overall. It's pros outweigh any cons.

    I have always used Swype, not a big Swift Key fan. Probably will just stick to the LG keyboard on the G3.

    I noticed yesterday that Swype came with the phone so I switched to it. I've been very happy with it.

    The stock LG didn't capitalize when you swipe upward, that was the only thing that bugged me. Very nice stock keyboard otherwise.

    From my naked gold G3, bling bling!

    Lg Keyboard, love it!

    Swiftkey only because I can make it purple.

    How do you do this? I would love to add a comma to the right of the spacebar but can't seem to get it. If i hold down the "."button, it just pulls up a grey box of punctuation Symbols. I can't move them. Thanks. I've been trying to get this for awhile.

    I like LG's keyboard, and there's nothing I would criticize about it. However, I had been a swiftkey user ever since they introduced flow. I loved swiftkey. But then it stopped working on my HTC One X, and I had to switch a few weeks back, so I started using the Google L keyboard. It's clean and simple. Honestly, all three keyboards, LG's, Swiftkey, and the Google L keyboard are all great. But for now I'm sticking to L, cause I'm used to it now. I think it's great that there are so many good keyboards now that it's come down to more of a matter of personal preference rather than which one is objectively better. We've come a long way in keyboards, and they keep on getting better.

    Settings > General > Language & Input > LG Keyboard (The gear icon to the right of it) > Keyboard Height and Layout > Bottom Row Keys

    That's where you can add remove buttons to the left and right of spacebar and choose what character you want for the key.
