    I've owned the G3 since opening day and have yet to put Swiftkey on the phone. Who thinks Swiftkey is better than the stock keyboard?

    Any particular feature on Swiftkey make you feel that way?

    I think the LG Keyboard, being an OEM keyboard, is very good out of the box and does everything as well as swiftkey... except next word prediction. If next word prediction worked like swiftkeys, i'd probably stick with the LG keyboard and was running it stock for a while. But I'm a sucker for updates and tried the latest swiftekey and runs great as usual and the next word prediction gives it an edge over stock so I'm sticking with swiftkey for now.

    I find SwiftKey more accurate and I like to change the look now and again

    Does the stock keyboard allow you to show arrow keys? If not, I'm sticking with SwiftKey.

    I like Swiftkey and really like the arrows, but I have had one annoying issue that has only shown up on my G3. When I have sentences that start with "I am" or "I can" (or similar phrases) when I hit the space bar to enter the words, it changes them to something like "II ccan" or similar. It is annoying and it is a pain to fix because it keeps wanting to change it to the wrong thing. I have not had this problem on any other phones and I have not seen any similar complaints on the Swiftkey forums, so perhaps it is something I did, but it is terribly annoying. Swiftkey can also be slow sometimes.

    I would use the stock keyboard if it had the arrows.

    Probably something you did.

    Bring up your keyboard in an app... like messenger, and type the word in question ("I am"). When you see the spell checker up top it will probably see the mispelled word it replaces it with all the time... press and hodl down the box with the mispelled word and it will ask if you want to remove this word from your dictionary and choose yes.

    I gave the stock keyboard a try for the first few days and then installed Swiftkey (which I used on my previous phone). I definitely prefer Swiftkey. Predictions are much better after training it on email, text messages, Facebook, etc.

    I use Google Keyboard from Google Play -- the fastest keyboard because I'm used to it so much. Also, the combo of swyping and regulart typing, and the accuracy of the autocorrect is great for my purposes.

    The way I like a keyboard is to type as fast as I want to, and the keyboard know what I meant to say and autocorrect. I don't like the predictive text -- never really worked for me. It takes so long to start typing a word, then see if they predicted it or not. I just type and Google Keyboard fixes. If it gets it wrong? Just tell it once, and it won't happen again.

    I tried the stock keyboard for about a week and just didn't really like it. I used the stock keyboard on the note 3, and Swype before that. I love Swype but I'm too accustomed to the number row, therefore I have SwiftKey a shot. It's OK... Better than the stock but for 3rd party keyboards I still prefer Swype

    i REALLY like the look and feel of the stock keyboard...

    BUT the word prediction (autocorrect) is HORRIBLE!!!! it changes words that actually exist to different words that don't make sense!

    it changed "pick" to "oick" and "to" to "it" etc etc...

    The G3's keyboard is probably the best I've use because not only it's very responsive, you can customize it and Clipboard is included. Google and hTc I have to download the Clipper app.

    That is the weird thing -- it looks fine in the suggested words box and whether you hit space then to accept it or finish typing it out and then hit space it changes it to the messed up words.

    hmm... then maybe try this... spell the mispelled word like "II" or "ccan" and if you see the mispelled word in the suggested word box, then long press and remove the mispelled words. In that way it will be out of your dictionary and shouldnt default to it? I have a similar problem with my iPad air doubling up letters and havent looked into how to clear it.

    I loved the feature set on the stock LG keyboard.... the customization, layout... but the actual operation was horrible. I gesture type, and it would miss the pause between words almost half the time and I'd get strange chars added to several words in a sentence. I'd have to go back and fix about 1/3 to 1/4 of the words I typed.... it was a mess and made it unusable.

    Pity though.... it had all the makings of a top-notch keyboard.

    I was a heavy Swype user, but I think I'll give Swiftkey a shot.... with the bigger screen, I think I want the dedicated number row and the added cursor keys.

    I just switched to Swiftkey today. Will let you all know if I stay with it. Been getting annoyed with the LG keyboard messing with my word input. Almost seems like the keys are too small or my fingers are too fat. Probably the way I type, who knows.
