    Coming from an iPhone 8+, my typing and mistakes are still very poor compared to the iphone typing experience.

    I downloaded swiftkey but not much difference. Also tried enlarging the keys but still the same.

    Is it just a case of experience and time? Or is there a better keyboard to use?

    Gboard, swiftkey, go keyboards are the ones I recommend. Fleksy is alright, touch responsiveness is meh at times

    I used to swear by Swiftkey. But started experiencing lag issues with it. And apparently that was becoming a common issue. Been using Gboard and it works well.

    SwitfKey... easily the most customizable, from layouts to colors, to keys, etc.

    I'm currently using the stock keyboard, but have had good luck with Touchpal's Leather keyboard. Only issue with them is they have some ads. I haven't really messed around much with keyboards, but may try a few other ones out. I'm very picky with how they look I like the stock keyboard because it will show my theme behind it - currently have a leather theme that shows on my backgrounds - like it a lot.

    I recommend learning how to do you glide input on Gboard. I've been "typing" this way for years dating back to when Swype keyboard was new.

    For me it's much faster and much more accurate versus regular typing. It's also a joy to do it. Ha

    Whichever one you choose definitely give swipe typing a try. Once you get used to it it's hard to go back to regular typing. Make sure you go through the settings to make sure you have everything setup to your liking. I even do it on my iPhone also.

    I install Gboard on every Android device. Also Gboard learns your habits fairly quickly and soon you will find it good enough to match the suggestions offered by the iOS keyboard helping you on your Android transition.
    Good luck OP.

    I agree. I miss URL suggestions, space after comma and all input area suggestions.
    But Gboard now support my language, have better suggestions (than what it used to) and is faster.

    Gboard by a long ways, distant second choice would probably be SwiftKey, but it's been going downhill over the last 3 years and Gboard is widening the gap.

    I've been using Gboard, but used Swiftkey for years before that. There are a number of excellent keyboards in the Play Store. You really just need to find the one that you like best. Definitely don't listen to whoever said "they are all crap". That's definitely not true. Sometimes choice is just too much for people and they do better being told what to use.

    The reason I don't use GBoard is because I cannot use GIFs or stickers when using stock messaging app. Is their some setting that you use? Or do you not use stock messaging app?

    I've found that to be somewhat annoying myself, but the Gboard and stock messaging combo is the best bet. Swiftkey is a complete dumpster fire if you're a swipe typer and the other messaging apps out there don't look nearly as good as stock when themed with your phone.

    I've almost exclusively used SwiftKey since my jump to Android, but I may try some other options since we have the beauty of that on this platform.

    I absolutely hated the stock keyboard on iOS, especially the later generations. On my iPhone 7+ I immediately downloaded SwiftKey since it was what I was familiar with.
