    I don't have Swype on this phone so I gotta go with SwiftKey 3.

    I have used them both. They both have pros and cons. Your preference really.

    I've used them both and they are both so much better than the stock keyboard. Since I type with my index fingers, I really prefer Swype Beta (not the one that comes with the S3) available here: Swype | Text Input for Screens

    SwiftKey all the way. I think it has better prediction and auto correct.

    I also prefer SwiftKey 3, it has been my keyboard since I downloaded it. But try them both. The most pretty sure they both offer trial period or free versions that you can try first.

    Hands down SwiftKey 3 I can't use any other keyboard you just have to get semi close to the word and it knows what your talking about I can type so fast with it. See if it comes on sale for $0.25 with the promotion going on and I would jump right on it. I would recommend using the free trial first to get the hang of it but trust me you will never look back after making this purchase.

    Why take only one input method? Check out FlexT9, you can do either Swype or keyboard typing entry. It became my go to keyboard.

    I've tried a lot of keyboards and anything other than Swiftkey winds up causing frustration for me. The predictive text on Swiftkey is just so much better than anything else out there. Swype is fun to use and I do switch over to it sometimes but I always go back to Swiftkey.

    I actually have both on my phone, but I use swype all the time.

    I'm a big Swype fan personally, especially since it makes typing easy while only using one hand.

    Swipe is most useful and fun for me. Its also accurate when blind-typing.

    FlexT9 is the best keyboard, unfortunately Nuance has quit supporting FlexT9 you cannot get it at the Play store or Amazon. I suspect they've dropped it in favor of Swype.

    I use both but perfer Swype, on phones there is no competition swype is just better. On tablets Swiftkey is on par. However what is nice about Swiftkey is once you buy it you can install it on any device, where swype is always a bit of a pain to install, in some cases impossible.

    I have used both but currently using Swype on both of my phones , so Swype(hands up) gets my vote

    Edit : I broke the tie with 15-14 in favor of Swype

    Nooo .... I didn't know that the had incorporated FlexT9 into Swype. Still find flexT9 in Amazon for me. Swype just has different feel. Maybe need to grab latest beta. With that bit of info Swype gets my vote

    Having used both, I must say I favor SK3. Swype just annoyed me after awhile, but I cannot put my finger on exactly why.

    I find swiftkeys prediction and auto correct to be a little less aggressive than swype, therefore I like it better

    Swype is by far my favorite but I've recently switched to Swift Key because of an odd editing problem with swype. Does anyone else who uses swype have a problem where you try to edit something that you typed and the words start to over lap. Or when pressing backspace the cursor jumps to the middle of the word. Sometimes with swype I couldn't even see what I typed unless I hit the back button and as soon as the keyboard went away the text appeared. It's really strange. Swype is way faster for me but those issues were so annoying I finally switched to Swift Key.

    Were you using the stock Swype keyboard that comes with the G3 or were you using the Swype Beta? Swype | Text Input for Screens
    There is a difference, and Swype Beta is so much better than the one that comes with the G3. If anyone downloads the Swype Beta, make sure you check Swype Beta in the phone settings (language and input) and also make sure to change the default keyboard to Swype Beta. You'll know you have the Beta version when the keyboard trace color is ORANGE.
