    I am an iPhone convert, I am trying to get used to this phone, I really want to live it, but my biggest problem so far is this keyboard. My fingers are not that fat. But I can't type without having to erase and retype 4 or 5 times even in a short text message. It's almost bad enough to go back to my old 6 plus. Am I doing something wrong.

    I've been using Android so long that I have those same exact frustrations when I use my IPhone. Try the other keyboards mentioned on this thread. And give it time.

    You get your apps thru here, Google playstore mostly. Amazon has a store to, but I suggest getting your apps from one source so you know where they all came from during reinstalls.

    I know where to get the apps, but is it an easy install? Do I have to do anything other than hit install? Uninstall the old one?

    Usually when you download the new keyboard it will prompt you to change the keyboard to the new one when you open it

    Happy you found something that works for you.

    This is the beauty of Android. Keep going and ask questions when you have them. This is an awesome site, I came from Blackberry way back and this site has been so helpful over the years.

    That's why I switched. Because I had options,. I just didn't know how to use them. . And so far I have typed this as fast as my fingers will move and only backspaced onced. This is so much better.

    I do have another question!! I cant get my other email accounts to work. I set up a separate Gmail account for switching to Android. But every time I try to set up my other email accounts for work and my other personal account, it keeps giving me errors,. I know the password to my work email, i use it everyday at work, but it keeps telling me that my credentials are not correct. I know they are. I have tried many times

    Android does a thousand things better than IOS but the keyboards, including G Board and Swiftkey are not even close to the IPhone keyboard.

    Why the OEM's or 3rd parties can't get to the IPhone keyboard is beyond me. Is it patented?

    I disagree. I hate the iPhone keyboard.
