    Default Stock keyboard

    How many people like the stock keyboard? I typically install SwiftKey as soon as I get a new phone. The stock keyboard is alright. It doesn't handle conjunctions well and seems to be a little glitchy in landscape.

    What are your thoughts and experiences?

    Words cannot explain how far HTC Stock Keyboard has come! If I didn't have Swiftkey 3, I would probably stick to the stock keyboard as my daily driver. It could do a better job of contractions and do a better job of putting a space after words that it predicts.

    While the stock keyboard is decent, I am so used to the SwiftKey layout and shortcuts that I don't care for using anything else. Little things like the location of the comma, exclamation, and question mark in SwiftKey are great.

    I imagine of I stuck with any other keyboards for more than a couple of days I would figure them out too... I just don't like messing with muscle memory.

    I've used nothing but the stock keyboard so far. I'm not nearly as accurate with it as I was on my iPhone but its not that bad.

    Not I. SwiftKey is one of the first things I install on any phone.

    I don't care what kind of phone you have, that's not how I judge someone's worth or intelligence.

    Yes. It makes the keyboard 1 row taller.

    The stock keyboard on this phone is really decent, however, as others have said, once you use SwiftKey it's hard to leave.

    I stick with the stock Jelly Bean keyboard...it is just the most basic and clean looking. And it allows for swiping when you've only got one hand too...so it's kind of the best of all words as far as I'm concerned.

    I dont use any form of word prediction or auto correct, so swift key is useless to me unless it is like 1000 times more accurate than stock.

    I'm been using as a replacement keyboard for a couple of weeks, and it's amazing!

    As others have said, the built in keyboard is actually very good, but Kii combines Swype functions with Swiftkey next word prediction, to create the ultimate keyboard!

    Any of you currently using Swype or Swiftkey, and haven't tried Kii, you should at least give it a try! (it's free... you can always go back)

    Anyone else? I find that I keep hitting arrows instead of the spacebar when I have the arrows enabled

    I prefer the arrows, and it's one more thing I like about SwiftKey.

    I love my SwiftKey, I've tried the stock one and I do like it, just don't prefer it.

    I have an issue when I go to landscape sometimes. The display will go all funky and the keyboard isn't legible. If I use a different keyboard it's fine.

    I used to use swiftkey but switched to slide it a couple years ago. Does swiftkey now have the swype/slide it style of typing as an option?

    I did when i had my one x+, same keyboard as the Dna. And i loved it. :thumbup: Loved the arrow keys. Its a great keyboard too, not much learning needed to use it efficiently. I miss that about my one x+, but swiftkey 3 is also a nice keyboard, thats what i use now on my n2 :thumbup:
