    I have never been a fan of the default keyboard. I always use a 3rd party such as Gboard.

    I like the Samsung keyboard because it works with the themes, but the auto correct and spell check is awful.

    The worst part of this, is that only the Samsung Keyboard allows you to use "Handwriting to Text" within Samsung Notes, and that is one of the main reasons I have the Note. So when I open Samsung Notes, I have to switch to the Samsung Keyboard so I can use that feature, and then switch back when i'm done. Google Keyboard used to work with this feature on the Note 7, but not anymore.

    There are parts of it that I like, but I like to Swype and it guesses wrong about 90% of the time sigh

    +1 for Gboard...
    Themes
    Better predictions
    Larger keys
    Customizable
    Number row OR not

    And my favorite feature... Adjustable long press duration. ( I set mine at 130 milliseconds ) This let's me disable the number row as it's super fast to long press anything. You'll have to see for yourself but it makes a world of difference

    I finally switched to gboard. The Samsung keyboard had the most of the wall autocorrect. I liked that I was able to theme it black but typing on it was too frustrating.

    I tried really hard to use the stock Samsung keyboard, but it just didn't seem to make words of my swypes. I ended up going back to SwiftKey. I'm able to customize it and it somehow knows what I'm trying to type -- even when I totally mess it up somehow.

    It is terrible. I was using the Samsung keyboard on my S8, but now it just seems like it can't predict any texts and the autocorrect doesn't work well at all.

    I switched over to Gboard and it works great now.

    I'm glad it's not just me. The autocorrect has been a royal pain for me so far. I will have to try some of the aftermarket keyboards, for sure!

    I seem in the minority but I like the stock keyboard and I didn't like Gboard that much. I almost always turn off the predictive feature, I hate it. I haven't had any trouble with the stock one. Gboard's autocorrect was too agressive for me. It refused to believe some of the things I typed even though they were correct. Another instance of how cool it is to have a lot of choices for different people.
