    Default Note 3 Keyboard Sucks

    I have noticed the keyboard on my Note 3 sucks. Is there anyway I can get the S4 keyboard on my Note?

    I would like to be able to delete the whole word after typing it instead of one letter at a time with one press of the backspace key. Also, swype guesses the word I want to type like half the time. It's super annoying.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    You could download Swype or the Google Keyboard from the Play Store. Both are better than the Samsung keyboard imo

    Also, make sure to check out Google Keyboard. It is my favorite out of all the keyboards I have tried.

    I'm with IAmSixNine. I don't have any issues with the Stock Note 3 keyboard. I have used SwiftKey and Google keyboards too, but i got used to having the number row on the top, so it is my go to kb.

    They biggest issue I find with the stock Note 3 keyboard is the way they have done the punctuations. There is no long press option. Using punctuations on the stock keyboard takes way too many steps. Definitely, Swype and SwiftKey are solid replacements.

    The main things I don't like about the keyboard compared to its predecessor on the Galaxy S2:
    - punctuation marks, including the comma take 3 button presses to insert, whereas the S2 was a single long press.
    - predictive text is annoying, it always changes words I type in one letter at a time to something random so I always to remember to check that it's in the dictionary before moving to next work
    - did I mention that there's no punctuation on the main screen except for period? Which is the only punctuation that isn't need because it's automatic :-(

    I do like the numbers being on the top though

    I really like the message ease keyboard. Its weird, but I find it much easier than swipe. Hard to explain, because it certainly has a learning curve!

    Prior to getting the Note 3, I used the third party keyboard called Thumb Keyboard. I really like the way I can increase the size of the keys, add cursors, build in word shortcuts like for example otw=on the way (so you just type 'otw' and it changes it automatically to 'on the way' !). I tried it a few times on my Note 3 but there is no option to use the S pen with it, nor can you use the picture emoji's, Thumb keyboard only has the archaic type of emoji's. I have emailed the dev about these two options, but do not hold any hope of these two functionalities being added or perhaps they are unable to do so.
    Anyone know of a keyboard that you can make the keys bigger on with s pen capabilities?

    I am fairly new to using SwiftKey but love it! There are five sizes for the keyboard and whatever font you use for system also appears on the keys. If the letters are too small, just change the font. Works fine with my s pen! I don't know about word shortcuts.

    I'm very confused by some of the posts on this thread. You guys seem to have a different stock keyboard than I do. My stock Samsung keyboard on my Tmobile Note 3 absolutely allows you to long press for punctuation. What OS are you guys running? I'm on 4.4.2 stock and just bought my phone last week so never saw if the Jellybean keyboard was any different.

    Also, you can turn off predictive text and auto complete in the settings for those that don't like it. I keep it on myself but for the people who mentioned not liking it, just turn it off.

    I have tried the following keyboards on this phone: Samsung, Google, SwiftKey, Swype, Flex T9. The Samsung stock keyboard is my favorite. I love having the number row up top. The swipe typing works greats for me - better than the other keyboards. The handwriting with the SPen is surprisingly accurate for me. The other keyboards either don't have a handwriting function or the one that touts that it does, functioned abysmally for me personally (that may depend on your writing style but it only got one word out of 100 for me and the 99 wrong ones were gibberish, not even close).

    Anyway, I'm not trying to talk anyone into using the stock keyboard - use whichever you like best of course - but I'm just surprised that the comments here sound like some of you are using a completely different stock keyboard than I have or haven't gone into the settings at all (or maybe your settings are different if there was a different kb on jellybean)?

    I misunderstood the part about using the s pen with SwiftKey. Doesn't work for handwriting. I bet before too long that will change. The reason I don't like the stock keyboard for punctuation is they are too small to see. They are much larger on SwiftKey! I just saw a setting for changing the milliseconds on the long press which makes it even better. Very cool.

    There is a beta version of SwiftKey that has the option of adding a number row on top.
