    I have not noticed this, but Swiftkey is the one thing on my S3 that I don't mind consuming battery power. It's almost scary how it knows what I want to say. At most I just need to enter three letters of a word, usually one or two, and bang, there is the word I was typing!

    Swype Beta user here. Tried SwiftKey and was annoyed that in lots of apps (browser is one) it didn't show the multiple word choice bar on top of the keyboard and it's a known issue with SwiftKey. Swype Beta is just a better all around keyboard.

    I found that once I set my language to English, it wasn't set to anything at start, the S3 keyboard autocorrect seems to work better.

    I think it was your post, pappcam, that convinced me to download & try-out the Swype Beta keyboard. Really glad I did; so much better than the samsung and the TouchPalI was then trying out. Only had one bug problem so far, primarily in email app, but no worries. All in all . . really liking it. So thanks again! ;-)

    Swiftkey is half price $1.99 for Thanksgiving weekend, if anyone is interested.

    Also, there are a number of posts in this thread referring to the Jelly Bean keyboard. There are multiple keyboards in the play store with that name. Is there an official Android Jelly Bean keyboard out there?

    Thanks,

    I actually agree 100% with the title of this thread. I have been using the stock Jelly Bean Keyboard again now that I'm into the customization stage of this phone and it feels 1000x more natural and accurate!

    Thanks,
    Exactly what I've been thinking. People keep saying "Jelly Bean Keyboard", but there are a number of them in the App Store. I DL'ed the "johntanmi" one, because it seems the lightest, and uses the least MB's, and it's great. The new 4.2V has Swype, hold-to-punctuate, auto correct like my iOS keyboard did, and pretty much everything you'd need. Very happy with it. Goodbye piece of CRAP Samsung keyboard.

    Yep.. It actually is annoying when you have THE best phone in the market - but a ty keyboard. I am an ex-HTC user which, in my opinion, has THE BEST smartphone keyboard out there - no competition.

    Yea SwiftKey is unbelievable, but there is SOMETHING about having a GOOD STOCK keyboard rather than downloading one. I mean when a phone is this good you want everything to be stock-Samsung...but alas, I guess we have no choice but to go for SwiftKey, cuz like you said - the SGS3 truly does have the WORST keyboard out there!

    With any luck, the next update will help that.
    Doesn't the note 2 have the SwiftKey prediction engine? Hopefully they will make it available to you as well

    I loved and got used to the swype on my GS2. When I got the GS3, I hated the samsung keyboard with a passion! I've bought the swiftkey 3 and like it. But I personally hated tapping when I type. The only keyboard I would tap to type was on a physical keyboard of blackberrys.

    I was hoping when I upgraded to the official jelly bean OS, it would fixed the samsung keyboard. But there was no change.

    So I looked on this forum and was glad I wasn't the only one thinking the same thing!

    In the end, I downloaded the swype beta and love it so far! I believe it's the best all around keyboard as well!

    I used your recommended setting and was ok with that. Now after an upgrade the autocorrect is gone(?) and this setting is not available any more.

    Any new tips?

    The major advantage of Android over Apple is it's customizability. Keeping an Android phone stock seems to defeat the whole purpose.

    What recommended settings, for what keyboard, and what upgrade? There are a lot of posts in this thread, and it's not at all clear what one you're replying to.

    The main advantage over apple is Google services integration.. Other people don't care about customization and don't install third party keyboards. My mom barely has icons on her home screens, even.

    That's why SwiftKey is on sale 75% of the time to boost their install rates and stay at the top of the paid app charts.

    I used the Samsung keyboard on my mom's GS3 and it seemed fine. The layout was much improved over this phone as well. On my Vibrant I only used the Samsung keyboard, but not being able to remove the settings button on this phone is a bit of a show stopper, since it causes the space bar to be smaller and off-center.

    One thing I did notice about Samsung keyboard is it tends to perform better than third party keyboards on their phones.

    On this phone its considerably smoother than swiftly and the auto correct is fine (using it right now). Don't know how it could be any worse on the 3. Swiftkey is better at next word prediction, though.

    Installed swift key because after some use it tends to think it knows what you want to type better than you do. I ended up good back and correcting things, or sending really embarrassing mistakes.

    I could never get used to swiping, and think it works best on note-type devices with a stylus.

    Sounds like I'll have to give Swiftkey 3 a try soon. For now, I'm using the stock jellybean keyboard.

    I installed SwiftKey3 after the reviews on this site. MUCH better than UltraKeyboard, or any of the other apps I've tried.

    SwiftKey is really good and I have found one named Perfect Keyboard which seems to be very great

    I second, third or eighth that notion about SwiftKey 3.

    I was having a huge problem with the autocorrect after the most ostrecent update. No setting changes or amount of patience reolved the issue. Finally I just decided to download a keyboard app...one of the better decisions I've made in awhile.

    I ended up installing SwiftKey 3 Keyboard, and my life is infinently better. It autocorrects appropriately. It also learns my pattern of speech and which words I use most often and takes those into account. It has some other pretty neat features too.

    Long story short, if this is a problem you're having, this is my suggestion to you. It took the stress out of text.

    Stock samsung keyboard is crap.
    When you want to highlight text it can get VERY frustrating. Its all over the shop.
    My gfs iPhone has a sweet set up for selecting, copying and pasting text. The magnifying glass is really helpful unlike Samsungs.
    Anyway, ill try SwiftKey.

    TouchPal keyboard is the best keyboard I can find on the market. Perfect combo of tap typing and swyping. No lag or anything. Good customization settings. Give it a week or so to learn how you type and you will be typing faster than ever
