    I was considering getting the Samsung Galaxy S4 until I realized that they disabled the auto correct feature. That is a deal breaker for me. However, if I bought and downloaded Swiftkey would the Swiftkey auto correct feature be allowed to work on the S4 like it does with all other phones. It is a must feature for me and I love Swiftkey. So if it would work then I would probably get the phone. Thank you.

    well, i don't know if it has something to do with specific models, or carriers, but the samsung stock keyboard DOES have autocorrect, you just have to enable it...

    also, if you buy and download the Swiftkey keyboard, or any other keyboard with an autocorrect feature, you will also be able to use it... it has nothing to do with the device itself

    The s4 does not have auto correct. It has auto suggest. If you misspell a word it doesn't automatically fix it but rather shows you the correct spelling above the keyboard.

    Yes all other keyboards that have auto correct will work. The r feature is only disabled on the Samsung keyboard due to the apple lawsuit. It does not bar any other software from using auto correct.

    OP's question's answer:
    Yes, swiftkey will work as advertised and auto correct to it's little digital heart's desire, and it does a mighty fine job at it too. Really, really good at guessing right.

    Thank you for the replies. Yes that auto replacement featured in the pic is for Europe version only. If I get the S4 I will just download Swiftkey. It is by far the best keyboard I have ever experienced. That will solve the auto correct problem.

    After doing some searching I found out that the US version autocorrect was removed due to Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit that apple won. I am starting to truly hate Apple. In the we, the consumers, are the ones that gets screwed by Apple.

    Well it doesnt make sense, but thats the failure of our justice system. Apparently Apple invented and patented everything.

    Other keyboard's autocorrect will/do work on the S4. Swiftkey would/does have full functionality on the S4.

    I had swiftkey before. But I really wanted to try to keep everything stock. English isnt the only language I use on the keyboard. So using stock samsung keyboard makes it very easy to toggle and switch to another language.
