    Was using Google. I've liked the Samsung keyboard since the S5 because of the number row.

    There are two types of Android users: those who use SwiftKey and those who have never tried SwiftKey.

    Any concerns about Swiftkeys "permissions"?
    This concerns me a bit especially since it says it won't read your passwords but does read your credit card numbers. So it could record them for some reason?

    I tried to stick with the default, used it for about a week. Always used Swiftkey in the past, and I knew what I was missing out on. So as always, I'm using Swiftkey.

    I have always used one not yet mentioned - Smart Keyboard Pro. I really love the layout and the fact that I can longpress so many of the keys to get alternate type.

    That said there is one thing I really do NOT like and maybe I can get some advice here since I can't seem to get an answer from Smart Keyboard support.

    The stock keyboard and Swiftkey and the Google keyboard all function the same when you press the 'mic' button - they call up google voice typing.

    However, Smart Keyboard Pro pulls up a different voice program - Google voice? and it is NOWHERE near as functional. I have to dictate a line at a time whereas in the others I can dictate at will and it keeps listening and translating.

    Does anyone know how to associate the Google Voice Typing a la Swiftkey with Smart Keyboard? I have no success at all....

    I love Swiftkey, but one thing is stopping me from using it. I am using chompsms and when I get a pop up sms message on the lock screeen the keyboard will not work with swiping gestures. Hopefully they get it fixed soon because I prefer it over the samsung and Google keyboards.

    Swiftkey was my favourite but I'm really starting to like the Keepass 2 keyboard. Keypass manages all of my pass words and the keyboard has a quick paste function. Word prediction is more than acceptable. Certainly worth a look if you have lots of passwords.

    Currently using Google keyboard but I really wish the numbers were present as another row. May jump back to stock keyboard.

    Have always used Swiftkey, but been enjoying Samsung keyboard so far. Will probably end up back with Swiftkey at some point.

    Been using SwiftKey for more than a year, tried a few others.

    Began to realise lately there are compromises in any keyboard layout.
    (duh!)

    Not crazy about swiping left and right for exclamation and question marks, but I have the arrow keys taking space.
    Samsung's layout on the Note 3 is a PITA, so hopefully they have improved as mentioned.

    Not got an S6, but may do.

    Using SwiftKey on a 'smaller' screen than 5.7 would be a harder test for it, and my fingers. I don't know how I typed on an S2, or do on my Moto G 2013, but I am more inaccurate and hate it.

    Come to think of it this may be another factor to push me towards a Note 4 or 5.

    I don't know if carriers do 14 day returns in the UK, though I have bought outright in the past when the price drops a little; so it's more of a gamble for me if I end up mistyping constantly on an S6.

    so Ive been a swype user for years but Im curious about the swiftkey love im reading about. Being completely uninformed of this keyboard, why would you recommend it over others? text predict? layout?..basically, I am open to switching but would love to hear compelling reasons to do so

    Phil from AC has a post explaining how to add the number row on the Google Keyboard. I'm on my phone and unable to share the link, but it does exists. It has to do with changing a setting to have a "desktop" keyboard layout.

    Anybody feel SwiftKey has become sluggish. Predictions are still the best but it doesn't seem as quick as Google Keyboard.

    Default Samsung Keyboard on the S6 is fantastic. No need for any other keyboard on S6.
    On other android phones, I used Google keyboard: material dark.

    ^^^ I totally agree with this. I just wish you could change the color scheme of the stock samsung keyboard ... but I can live with it as it sits now.

    It's been so long since I used the stock app. Swiftkey also has themes and keyboard layout options.
