    Default Word Prediction vs Swifkey

    I thought I had heard that the Note 2 had Swiftkey word prediction built in, is that correct? I used to use Swiftkey, but have been using the Samsung keyboard (I like having the numbers on top). However, the stock word prediction doesn't seem as good as it was on Swiftkey for me. And there's no button to re-learn from SMS. Is that supposed to be continuously re-learning? It sure doesn't seem like it is.

    I'm thinking of going back to Swiftkey, just wish there was an option to keep the numbers displayed at all times.

    I'm with you. I finally went back to SwiftKey. Not sure about the prediction, but the auto correct is much better on SwiftKey for me. I do miss the dedicated row of numbers though.

    I am in the minority here, but I prefer stock.

    I agree, if the prediction was better or it had a setting to learn from SMS I would of stuck it out with stock but I went back to Swiftkey.

    Okay, I'm going back to swiftkey. I'll miss the dedicated numbers, but the better prediction plus having a comma button it too big of an advantage.

    I was an avid Swiftkey user but on the advice of the VZW rep I tried the native keyboard and am very happy. I did delete Swiftkey from the device.

    Get the new swiftkey beta with swipe and turn down long press sensitivity. You get the amazing predictions from swift key, the speed of swipe, and the numbers are easy to use.

    Turning down the long press sensitivity is definitely a good idea whether you use the beta or just regular SwiftKey. Makes using the numbers and symbols a heck of a lot more accessible.

    I can't find the beta with swipe. I love SwiftKey but I keep switching between SwiftKey 3 and stock because I use swipe when I use the s pen.

    I gave up Swiftkey 3 for Stock. The stock feels more crisp to me. Love the numbers across the top. And the S pen handwriting to text. What I miss about Swiftkey 3 is the ability to make the keys larger and changing the colors.

    Still using stock, it's probably one of the best stock keyboard's I've used. And those numbers at the top are too awesome!

    What do you recommend turning down the long press sensitivity to?

    Since stock has no spell check or correction, it would be nice if the 3rd party keyboards could popup the much smaller keyboard when using multi view the way the stock keyboard does.

    I like the handwriting feature of stock, the quickness of Swipe and the auto correction of Swiftkey. In otherwords I can't decide.

    My problem with the stock keyboard is that it predicts and corrects my typing just fine but it doesn't automatically insert the correct word with the space bar. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. If not, that is why swiftkey is such an advantage.

    Agreed, Swiftkey wins in that area.
