    I don't think I have seen you around. Welcome to the forums. Have you tried rebooting the phone?

    It was the Android System Webview Update that caused it for me. Try uninstalling update.

    Open your Play Store app, search for Android System Webview, then tap Uninstall. It will ask you if you want to revert to the factory version -- say yes.

    On a Samsung Galaxy S7...

    I had a similar problem but not exactly the same. When I "press and hold" a key to get the associated punctuation (special character), I would get a double letter. For example, when I pressed and held "m" to get a "?" I would receive "mm" instead.

    I tried to uninstall the Android System WebView App as directed above in this thread but the app was already Disabled. And uninstalling it was not an option present.

    However, I was able to solve the issue by resetting the personalized data in the Samsung keyboard (see the following):

    Settings -> Language and Input -> Virtual Keyboard -> Samsung Keyboard -> Reset Settings -> Clear Personalized Data

    Hope this helps.

    Same is happening on my Note 10. Playstore does not allow uninstall of Webview update. Tried Karina's solution above. Didn't solve the problem.
