    I never had so many issues with texting or typing with my iPhone. What is it with the stock keyboard that makes it so hard with the Note 7? I thought it would get better with use but not so much. What is your favorite keyboard? I've always used stock so not sure which one to try. Thanks!

    Just get swift key. It's widely regarded as the best for a reason!

    I use SwiftKey as well, but Google keyboard is also a nice alternative

    I switched from Google Keyboard over to Swiftkey. I like having the number row and SK provides that option and a lot more useful tweaks.

    Stock keyboard is Samsung's keyboard. The functionality is different, as is the customization. The biggest difference, though, is that SwiftKey's predictions are light years ahead of Samsung's.

    I thought it was also the same keyboard as it swipes just the same.

    IMO though, and this is just because I'm just coming from a BlackBerry device... BB had the best VKB out there hands down. not even needing to swipe, but simply flick letters and words to compose conversations and messages was so fast and intuitive. I really miss that keyboard.

    I liked Samsung's keyboard because unlike Google's it is smart enough to know not to put a space after '@gmail.'

    Does swiftkey have that built in too? Entering forms on Google's keyboard is so painful.

    "We supply Samsung with the core technology that powers the word predictions in their keyboard via an SDK – which is distinct from a pre-installed app (you can learn more about this here). We are doing everything we can to support our long-time partner Samsung in their efforts to resolve this important security issue."

    ....?

    Have you considered installing the Blackberry vkb?

    Just Google "Blackberry manager", first hit should help you out.

    I really liked Fleksy on my Note 2 and Note 5, but it doesn't work as well on the Note 7 because of the curved edges.

    SwiftKey has the best typing predictions.... But terrible swipe predictions. If you swipe, consider Swype.

    I've been a long time Swiftkey user and the prediction engine is still top of the hill IMO. I tend to predict my way through sentences with Swiftkey. If you're more of an actual brute force typer, I'd probably go with the Google keyboard which is a little more responsive for straight typing.

    Another vote for SwiftKey. I stray every now and then and the last time it was Fleksy but I always come back.

    Moving the cursor. It's optional along with the numbers on top. You can turn them on/off. SwiftKey also has themes although some of them paid but enough free themes for almost everybody.

    Personally I hate the swiftkey keyboard. I tried the Google one. The best keyboard for me is the blackberry keyboard.
