    i suggest staying with swift key as you have been staying with their friendly interface of a keyboard so why change? stay with what your comfortable with!

    The primary thing I like better about SwiftKey is that the numerical/symbol keyboard can have a "keypad" layout for the digits. I like that better than having them laid our across the top row.

    One problem I have, which has me using Swype is that I am getting "predictive" text suggestions. I like getting "corrective" suggestions better, and I cannot find the setting for that.

    Any guidance?

    BTW, Swype defaults to the numbers accross the top row, but I have found the setting for the keypad layout. If I could set SwiftKey to corrective text there's be little if any difference between those two for my use.

    Google keyboard FTW, Swift was my favorite, but not anymore. The swipe gesture was what I used Swift Key for and now the Google keyboard has it, game over for Swift Key.

    100% SwiftKey. If I wasn't using SwiftKey than the stock Lollipop keyboard.

    For me, SwiftKey is still the best for one main reason: I write in two languages (French and English) and I don't need to tell SwiftKey which language I'm using - it just figures it out, to the extent that I can easily write a sentence with both languages (any JCVD fans?).

    On top of that, SwiftKey takes a lot less screen real estate, which I appreciate.

    Google keyboard. I tried Swiftkey for the better part of the year and it was never good at predicting text. Even after its whole 'learning' process. So went back to Google keyboard and have been happy ever since. They have all of my info anyway, so it should make it a better experience.

    Way back when, Swiftkey was the first app I ever purchased and it was well worth the price. Things have changed since then. Google keyboard works the best and doesn't suffer from the lag I was experiencing with Swiftkey. There were also those annoying and frequent popups to ask me to select what keyboard I wanted to use.
    My spouse, on the other hand, prefers Swiftkey only because of the colorful themes. She also owns a selfie-stick.

    I try to use the stock keyboard, but I miss swiftkey. I type in three languages and miss the number row from Swiftkey. The design of the google keyboard rocks though

    I never liked Swiftkey... for whatever reason, it was HORRID at text correction/prediction. I spent far too much time going back and editing text. Google Keyboard was much better at getting things right. But Swype, for me, was by far the most capable of getting the right word I wanted down on the screen. I had been using the Google one for a long time, mostly because I preferred the interface. But I am giving Swype another shot the past couple of days....

    In my experience Google's Keyboard doesn't do a good job of predicting what I'm going to say next at all. Nearly 90% of the time Swiftkey knows what I'm going to say next. What I mean is if I look up at the 3 choices I can see the next word that I want to type so I rarely have to type or swype at all anymore. I like the "idea" of Google's keyboard, but practically Swiftkey kicks it's booty.

    The first time I set up the Nexus, I used Swift Key, but after the last wipe, I didn't.

    I've used SwiftKey for years. But I'm trying Google L for now. The ONLY thing I miss is that I got used to a small flick I could do with my right thumb to enter a ! or a ? easily. It takes and extra split second to do it on Google L and half of the time, I accidentally activate emojis or pick the wrong punctuation. Annoying.

    Switfkey, mostly due to writing in 2 languages constantly.

    I used Swiftkey on my GS4, but with my N6 I like the stock keyboard very much. For me, a little easier layout of the letters, but I can't say one is any better than the other.

    I like the L keyboard but it's not fluid in term of words predicted shen I am typing. SwiftKey just know what will I be typing the next word so much better than all the other ones that I tried. The only thing I don't like is the voice dictation button I have to long press the comas button to get it up but with the L Keyboard it's conveniently up on top right where if you are right handed it's a lot easier to get to...

    Search for Super SwiftKey or Team Blackout over on XDA Developers. It's not on the play store but it is in the Team Blackout Updater.

    I had used swiftkey for most of my Android career. I was a huge proprietor of it and even got most of my friends and family to buy over to swiftkey. I had purchased it and even purchased a few themes when they brought out the latest version.

    Swiftkey always had the best prediction algorithm and the introduction of "flow" sort of sealed the cake in the box. Then things changed...

    How could swiftkey keep up with a tech giant? Google has the research and development centre adequate enough to invent military technology before the military can. Within a few short weeks of the introduction of "flow" by swiftkey, google had released their keyboard to non nexus devices. This was when I decided to give it a try, I mean, it was made by Google and it had a "swipe" feature; so it must be good, right?

    That was a couple years back, I had not installed swiftkey on any phone since. Even now, I'm using the Google keyboard to type this. I did try going back to swiftkey for a little bit (that's what my wife uses), but I found it laggy (some letters wouldn't pop up when I typed fast), and the prediction was atrocious. I even tried out a "material" theme. The keyboard was nice, but I just couldn't put my finger on what was not quite right about it... Back to Google I went, and was amazed by how smooth it was.

    Game over, swiftkey fought hard, but they just couldn't keep up. Who needs a keyboard with a built in social network, anyway?

    TLR
    Used to use swiftkey, tossed up between SK and Google Keyboard, in the end SK just can't keep up.



    Differences:
    Swiftkey pros:
    Can change the shape and side of num pad.
    Can very quickly enter ? And !
    Themes, customization

    Google Keyboard pros:
    Can add punctuation very smoothly by "swiping" from the "?123" icon to a punc.
    Very smooth and never lags
    Minimalistic, Google voice, and amazing swipe (very accurate)

    I actually use TouchPal 2015 keyboard.
    I can't stand the fact that you can't disable the pop up on keypress. It's rather distracting. Also, TouchPal is emoji capable.
