    1.) phone is obv way better then my droid 4 but man i can not get used to the on screen keyboard, i used to type 10000 words a minute on that hardware keyboard, seems like this soft keyboard cant even keep up with the speed im typing??

    2.) fingerprint reader is horrible if if trying to use 1 handed sideways thumb...i tried registering 3 sets of prints still not accurate at all

    everything else functions great although only 550MB of free ram available is pretty low, i had 350 on my droid 4....can we root this thing to freeze apps yet?!

    I use my thumb side ways, and it works for me every time, I just get the middle of my thumb in the middle of the button and it works.
    Try SwiftKey

    Imo the Samsung keyboard if fine with me at the moment, but when I used to use Swift Key, It was very very very good. Try the trail version to see if you like it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ey.phone.trial

    I installed Google Keyboard a week after I got my Note 3. Samsung keyboard does a lot of weird things I don't care for. Mostly sub par auto correct and when I type a word correctly but it feels like I didn't the auto correct changes it. No big deal as all keyboards do but in Google Keyboard a quick backspace goes back to my original word where Samsung keeps it.

    Keyboards are personal preference as they are many good choices, I use SwiftKey and enjoy it. That said, I don't try other keyboards anymore because I like SwiftKey and it works for me. And since I pick up new phones often, I have the same experience across devices.

    I like swype better than swiftkey both in looks and in performance. By performance I mean the prediction for swedish words is better, at least in my experience. For english typing they seem about even but I do prefer the look/feel of swype. Weird since almost everyone else says swiftkey.

    Just bought SwiftKey as well and I cannot believe how fantastic it is. One of my biggest concern when switching over to Android from iOS was the keyboard and I I loved it. But SwiftKey is definitely just as good. Only complaint is how the numbers are on the right (or left if changed) rather than on the top. But I can adjust.

    Dude, you gotta make a youtube video of your use with hardware keyboard! 10000 words a minute is like 160 words a second! That HAS TO BE a world record!

    Inconvenient for a series of multiple numbers though. But you can start to adjust to the layout. I'm still having trouble learning where all the symbols are by heart.

    Exactly the same way I feel, I bought swiftkey, but I always got back to Swype, BUT, first Samsung Galaxy that I've own (I've own all of the S series) that doesn't come with Swype, anybody know why?
