i prefer swype because i do alot of portrait/one handed texting. However i tried swiftkey which was better for 2 handed/landscape texting. It depends on your usage. It was difficult with the swiftkey for 1 handed operation to tap each letter with the big phone. I have gotten used to it with swype because i just .... well...swype and don't tap.

I've tried FlexT9 and Swype. Both are pretty good vis-a-vis swyping functionality, but FlexT9 is better at learning, and worse at handling punctuation and capitalization. FlexT9 also has good voice input, though I seldom used it. Swype has the editing layer (select text,select all,arrows,delete key, etc.), which I use all the time, and it is easier to edit mistakes with Swype entry.
So I use Swype, but would go back to FlexT9 if it improved its editing capabilities.

I tried swiftkey for a few days and while it is impressive with learning your style and prediction I wasn't happy with it beginning my sentences. I love the stock keyboard but will be trying swype and seeing if it works as well as I have heard.

I have tried swoftkey before and for some reason it seemed a little laggy when I wad trying to type and it did it just wouldn't keep up. But thanks for your input. Where could I get a swype that actually works right, cuz I tried it before and not all the features worked.
sent for my fantastic thunderbolt.

I like the stock sense keyboard. Never had a problem with it.
I've tried the Gingerbread keyboard and didn't care for it since it didn't offer any significant advantages for me over the Sense version.
I've tried Swiftkey and didn't like the look nor the result
I've tried Flex T9 and didn't care for it either
I tried Swype and liked it but went back to stock since it didn't integrate with the overall look of the Sense
Then I got a mixed version of Flex T9 integrated with Swype by way of HTC for the Doubleshot. It looks and behaves like a Sense keyboard but with Swype flexibility. It's my current default keyboard now.
