    Hey everyone.

    So on my S7 I've been using the standard keyboard. The prediction is awful. I want to use a different keyboard.

    I've used Swype and Swiftkey. Which do you use and find most useful? Do you still get that annoying message to choose your default keyboard over and over? Is there a way to prevent that?

    I want to setup the N7 when it gets here. If the keyboard is the same I have to replace it.

    Thanks.

    I use the default keybkard, i have tried others and just kept coming back.

    I turn auto replace off, i like the suggestions but do not want things replaced, esp if i am typing in a hurry.

    I tried and tried to learn to use swype also on the keybkard and just can't!

    I use Swype. It works pretty well, though the prediction could be better. I just wrote a review of it on the Play Store saying so in the hopes that they'll fix it. Still, it seems to be the better one of the various ones I've tried.

    I used Swiftkey but it became a little slow for me. I am currently using the Google keyboard and I'm pretty happy with it. I like the fact that they included themes.

    Default Samsung keyboard. I taught it all my words and phrases and added in 2 other languages so I have zero problems with the spellcheck. If I ever screw up, it's mostly because I'm typing too fast and don't bother reading what I wrote.

    I think I will try the Samsung keyboard when I get my Note. I'm curious as to how much it has improved.

    Should be good since I use it on the s7 and never have a problem. If anything, swiftkey annoys me way more with its layout.

    TouchPal keyboard. Tons of themes, good prediction, much better swiping than Swype and Swiftkey, swipe for secondary characters so tons faster than other keyboards I've tried. I always go back to it!

    I usually start off with the stock keyboard for a while but always end up going back to SwiftKey

    I used it today, I am a SwiftKey girl, but I really liked the stock keyboard on the N7.

    I use Swype. Though wish the Dragon dictate would be more accurate.

    This.... it's been the easiest to use and most reliable of any of the KBs I've tried over the years.

    Swiftkey - I've been using it for so long that it knows all my standard phrases so sometimes I barely have to type anything! (Sad but true!).

    I've tried SwiftKey again. Let's see how it goes. Thanks everyone.

    I am coming from Blackberry. The virtual keyboard is better than any Android or ios keyboard I've used. The predictive text with 'flick' to select is superior to other methods of suggesting and choosing the next word.

    Blackberry has licensed BBM, the Hub, and I expect... soon... the keyboard. When they do, look for it.
