    I've been using Fleksy for the last couple years and I love it. It has swipe gestures for deleting the last word and for swapping between autocorrect suggestions, and I've gotten extremely accustomed to it and when I use a keyboard without it I feel frustrated.
    The autocorrect works well and the keyboard is fast and customizable.

    Try it out

    I use Swiftkey and I like it a lot. Sometimes I use Gboard, but I find its suggestions not that great. My U11+ has also Touchpal, which I also find good, but not as good as Swiftkey.

    Gboard and Swype are my favorites! I love the swipe method of typing with Swype and the voice young with Gboard is awesome!

    I had been using SwiftKey. Based on comments in this thread I am trying out GBoard.

    So far it blows SwiftKey out of the water!!!!

    Gboard does it for me, I used Swiftkey for about 2 years which I thought was hard to beat. Gboard just seems to get my typos

    Graffiti Pro. I used to have an old Palm handheld, so Graffiti scrawling comes naturally to me. And I find it faster for me than a regular keyboard.

    The BlackBerry keyboard is my go-to on any device. Word prediction is great, and I love the ability to long-press a letter to capitalize.

    I like Gboard in general but can anyone tell me how I can get it to detect or auto detect when I want to handwrite my messages and have them convert to text? In Samsung's keyboard, if my pen is out it displays the handwriting area. In GBoard I managed to activate this once but don't know how I did it.

    Ok so Gboard it is! Definitely a huge improvement to the stock. Even the dictation seems alot more accurate! Thanks for all the suggestions! Great forum!

    Swiftkey. I keep trying anything new that comes along (so glad to see that Touchpal only appears once in this forum and not as a first choice --- that app is poison), and coming back to Swiftkey. Gboard is a close second, but doesn't allow cursor keys, which is a must have.

    Gboard, for its simplicity, performance, good predictive engine, consistent updates, and now its fabulous integrated handwriting.

    I’ve tried & liked Chrooma (very customizable, but bloated, somewhat unstable & lackluster prediction engine) and Swype (great floating mode, but lacks characters I want)...

    ... and tried but never liked SwiftKey (lacks characters, don’t care for its prediction engine quirks & whimsical customization) and ai.type (too complex).

    i don't no how people are using Gboard when you have secure folder enable?
    talking about Gboard sync data, does not work with secure folder that's the only reason i will use SwiftKey...

    When I'm in Secure folder, my keyboard changes back to the Samsung default keyboard. I have not tried using Swiftkey in secure folder.

    i mean if secure folder is Enabled then Gboard won't sync your data.

    Swipe left or right on the space-bar in Gboard and you have a virtual lateral cursor

    Hold down the space bar. If you don't see it then go to Gboard settings and add it.What Keyboard is best?-screenshot_20180118-223041.jpg

    I should have mentioned that you have first to enable this feature in Gboard settings under 'Glide'.

    GBoard and G Handwriting Input (except in Secure Folder which seems to require the Samsung key board).

    BlackBerry keyboard made a huge difference for me. Love it comparing to stock.
    Did you manage to get it work on an Oreo device. It crashes on my pixel 2 XL.
