    Samsung needs some work on it's predictive text ...I'm on Gboard because of it.
    I too switched to Gboard because of it, but lately the Gboard isn't correcting things worth a damn anymore. I don't know what happened, but if I type things as simple as "happend" it won't even suggest the correct word. Annoying as hell.

    I think there was a recent update for Gboard.. but mine working good right now but Samsung keyboard if I type too fast after a word it makes it's own sentence up , I just throw my hands up like seriously.

    That sounds like a rough keyboard experience!

    I find cursor swipe frustrating on gboard as I keep triggering the keyboard selector. Obviously pilot error on my art but annoying. I find the new Samsung slightly better in this regard and SwiftKey terrible tbh. None of them are as good as force touch on an iPhone though (shame iPhone keyboards are otherwise terrible!)

    I also find with gboard that I cannot get the one handed keyboard sized how I want, one handed is too narrow and full slightly too wide, end up leaving it on full. Ironically one handed more seems to work better on a wider phone like the 3xl or iPhone X's max.

    YMMV

    I think Google gets me better than SwiftKey; but I do like some of SwiftKey's features (gestures, layout, customization).

    Here's another example of Gboard autocorrect sucking:. I typed "hanbfull" and it didn't even suggest "hand full". Really annoying.

    I'm using stock. I did use gboard at one point, but for me the predictive text was awful. Not sure why since I know gboard is well regarded by a lot of users. Predictive text isn't great on stock either though so maybe I should try it again. I had used Fleksy in the past and liked it too.

    I might go back to gboard. I've been getting a lot of errors with stock lately.

    Eh, I've switched over to SwiftKey again and I'll see how that goes. So far it is much better at actually correctly fixing words for me.

    prefer stock but what i hate on stock keyboard is that you cant change the press time for the alternate keys...more me it takes tooooooo long to press for an exclamation mark etc... in gboard they have the option to make the "long press" shorter.
    Stock keyboard also plays better with the s-pen in terms of recognizing to change to from keyboard to writing pad...while in gboard you have to click to select the writing pad first.

    I switched back to stock to see if it works good enough for me. One less app on the phone if it does. Mustang pushed me over the ledge. 😂
