    Wondering if I can upgrade the keyboard on my Verizon S4. I read that the stock keyboard is powered by "Swiftkey" technology. Is the paid version of Swiftkey more advanced than the stock keyboard? Would anyone recommend buying Swiftkey for the S4?

    Thanks for any comments!

    I use the paid Swiftkey on all of my Android phones and absolutely love it. I noticed a difference between it and my stock S4 keyboard.

    Google keyboard for sure, I paid for swiftkey and was very unsatisfied with it. Plus Google keyboard is free

    I agree. Used the trial for swiftkey and didn't end up buying it. Wasn't convinced it was that good.. Downloaded Google keyboard and I love it

    I've not tried the Google keyboard yet. I'm using SwiftKey and really like it.

    All these keyboards are nice and since were on android , we have a choice. Once thing I have not seen on any of these keyboards is the numbers along the top row of the keyboards, like the stock Samsung keyboard for the S4.

    Swift key use to be my go to one. Now I'm on Google Keyboard and it's great. Just cleaner and word corrections works awesome.

    I normally switch between the stock and Google keyboard from time to time or in a weekly basis.

    It all depends on how you feel using them.
    But I like them both, they're great. :thumbup:

    Stock android keyboard is cleaner but nothing beats the predictions on SwiftKey. You can also use two languages simultaneously and the "flow" is great too.

    I've had my note 2 since April, and I'm really mad that I didn't know about Google keyboard till this past month. Samsung keyboard is OK,same for swype. Swiftkey is OK, but I have a real problem with the way some of the functioning works with it as far as deleting whole words vs a letter. Google keyboard is exactly what I need.

    Yeah I just found out about it when I got my S4 back a couple weeks ago. Swiftkey was always a no brainer for me when setting up a new android but not anymore. I even disabled Samsung's altogether. Google keyboard is simple and just works. And the spacing between the keys is greatly appreciated. I keep my correction on aggressive and its awesome. Don't see going back to swiftkey because this only stands to get better.

    A.I.Type has an option to add a dedicated numbers row above the qwerty row. I like it best of the ones I've tried.

    Trying it out now thanks for the tip. Seems I even purchased it at one point in my android career.
