    Default Keyboard lag is really pissing me off...

    I recently just switched to the LG Optimus T from a Samsung Gravity 2. I loved my new phone at first, but now I am tempted to switch back due to the horrible keyboard lag...
    Swype:
    Nice aesthetics, but lags horribly. It constantly freezes on me when I type fast, and I don't like "swyping".
    Android Keyboard:
    In my opinion, it looks horrible, but that's not the point. I really, really dislike the "auto complete" feature that's located inbetween the keyboard and textbox. It's also a pain to hit the comma key. Also lags a bit, but nowhere near as bad as the swype.
    My questions:
    -Is it possible to use the Swype Keyboard but have "swyping" disabled? I think fast typing confuses the phone into thinking that it's being swyped, causing lag.
    -Is there another keyboard that doesn't lag too badly?

    root your phone and install CM7 or CM9 on it. your phone will instantly get 10 times faster and benchmarks will triple

    Do what darkknight says, or flash this . The main problem is that the stock kernel has a bug that causes 15-30% CPU utilization when screen is pressed. Makes games/swype/just about everything substantially slower. This kernel fixes (or nearly fixes) that bug.

    Also, if you prefer not to make the jump to CM7 (Gingerbread based), which makes voice recognition not work anymore, you can flash this , which I found to be pretty nifty. Either way you go, it will be a gigantic improvement over stock rom and kernel.
