    I use Hackers Keyboard. Because it has the cursor keys, delete key and the Ctrl key works with other keys (like Ctrl+c, Ctrl+v and Ctrl+x) to preform shortcuts like on a real keyboard. It works with speech but afaik not the pen.

    Do you like the auto correct? It Doesnt work as well as my old phone or iphone correction.
    Yes I love the numbers on top also.i use them a lot. I wish they had another row of arrows on top. Agree?

    Thanks for the info. I will try it out.
    But I use the pen a lot.
    Do you still use the pen at all?

    I use the pen quite a lot in fact maybe more than the keyboard. But I don't use the pen and keyboard at the same time. In fact I don't understand how the keyboard has anything to do with the pen.

    I enjoyed the Samsung stock keyboard but after a while got tired of the predictive text not being too accurate.
    I tried the free version of SwiftKey and noticed an improvement on the prediction and correction and decided to buy the full version.
    I would like to have the separate row of number keys but I find that the long press is not annoying.

    In my case I use both Portuguese and English dictionaries and type equally in both languages, and have big fingers and enjoy the bigger keys of the SwiftKey keyboard.

    The extra row for number keys mean smaller keys or a bigger keyboard, so IMO it depends on what works for you and how big your hands are

    I liked the stock keyboard cause of the swpying but i recently changed to Kii keyboard cause it has better accuracy when typing like a normal phone with both hands lol. Has a bunch of customisable options. I changed my skin to match my grey and white otterbox defender. :thumbup:What keyboard do you use?-uploadfromtaptalk1359399864644.jpg

    Im also using two languages all the time and being able to switch lingo is most important feature, I really liked the AI keyboard but without norweigen language pack its absolutly useless for me. I think I tryed swiftkey but it does the switching of langauge automaticaly I think and my spelling in both languages is so bad that I prefer to be only offered alternatives in one langauge at a time, using the go keyboard mostly, but I aint happy with that either!!

    I actually really like the stock keyboard, it's my first time going 100% virtual keyboard, all my previous phone have had a physical keyboard. But the keyboard + size makes it almost a non-issue

    I keep trying to use the Samsung keyboard but the correction and predictive text is awful. I do like the swype keyboard but I don't use it all the time. I keep going back to my trusty SwiftKey. It is the best keyboard out in my opinion.

    I may try again with the default keyboard when I start using the s pen more. I have not had time to experiment with that yet.

    I gave swiftkey 3 a try. I really wanted to like it but found the following problems with it:

    - it was too strict on having to begin exactly on the first letter of the word(Swype, which I'm currently using, is much more forgiving)
    - the predictability is not as good Swype

    So I'm using the built in Swype !

    I just tried out the hackers keyboard, at first I was like, wow a proper layout but after five mins I realised its not the keyboard for me. The keys are too small and the dark style seems to mock all the fat finger mistakes, plus erie silence, I couldn't find any sound settings


    But I was promted to go through all the keyboard options again, swiftkey I didn't like, go isn't fantastic especially with predictions(better at norsk than english which is weird) but the best one is the AI keyboard which just feels softer, and it has lots of good features like being able to scroll the keyboard up or down, plays a sound when it corrects a word, which helps if you are like me and dont look at the screen much when typing with two thumbs, but it still only in english.

    This is what I love about android. What seems like the perfect keyboard to me is not good for someone else. The good news is that there are plenty to choose from. You can take suggestions from others but it comes down to trying different keyboards and finding what works for you.

    This one looks good, I liked the stock one with the number row but no spell check was a deal breaker for me, I am going to give Kii a try for a couple days. So far I really like it

    Im giving swiftkey a go, i bought the full version straight up cause i wanted to test it out for my self and see if it was worth it. One thing i do like alot is the ability to split the keyboard into in landscape mode cause of the size of the note 2's displayWhat keyboard do you use?-uploadfromtaptalk1359426640776.jpg lol.

    I'm using the stock Android keyboard. I know some people don't like it all that much but I haven't used anything yet that is all around as good as it for general typing. Swiftkey is a close second though.

    The Hackers has settings that allow you to change colors/styles, sounds and swipe typing among many others.
