    In terms of the keyboard, you can resize the Samsung Keyboard to be less wide, bringing the keyboard away from the edges. I just found that out yesterday. That might help prevent touching the keyboard with your palm and in my case help you reach the entire keyboard one-handed. I tried the one-handed keyboard option but the keyboard was too small. Resizing the normal keyboard to be slightly away from the edges worked great for me.

    Settings - Language and input - Samsung Keyboard - Keyboard size
    That helped a bit. I moved left side of tget keyboard to the right a bit.

    First time posting here. I normally just read the comments but I couldn't stay on the sidelines for this one. I was having the exact same issue with the keyboard and thought I was going crazy until I figured out what a happening. It's not the edges of the screen. The entire touchscreen is too sensitive. If you hold your fingertip about a millimeter or so off the screen, the phone registeres a touch input. That's why the keyboard acts crazy. I noticed it when the phone kept opening links in Web pages without me telling it to.

    You can test this by activating the developer options and turning on "show touches". Hover your finger over the display to see how inaccurate the touchscreen is.
    Absolutely true. It's a super sensitive screen that registers inputs before you are fully on the screen. That said, my Spigen case makes all the difference in the world for typing (and holding too).

    Exact same experience here. I've been making selections on certain menus that I didn't mean to. Have not had that happen on any other Galaxy I've owned.

    Have to agree, case is a must without that it's unusable for me as well because it's so easy to touch the sides. You could get used to holding it without touching the sides but it's damn difficult and then for sure you are going to drop the phone.
    Also prefer Google keyboard over stock Samsung one.

    Adjusting the keyboard size helped a bit. You must reduce keyboard size from left and right so that you don't accidentally press characters when you hold the phone. Yes casing helped a bit. But did you guys experience 2 characters being deleted even when you are only pressing backspace once?

    I think the S7E is one of the easiest phones to type on...I guess I'm in the minority.

    I'm not sure if it was said or not already but I think I fixed it on my S6 edge. Go to settings, language and input, then virtual keyboard, Samsung keyboard then keyboard swipe. Turn that to none, which turns it off and makes it considerably less annoying without a case.
