    I think a lot if us don't realize how the keyboard works..it's intuitive to a fault. I keep hitting the wrong keys & it remembers those mistakes, but if you delete the wrong word, it will stop unless you do it again. "if" Instead of "of" drives me insane, but my fault every time.

    You could maybe try a different keyboard app?

    Omg I'm not alone! I have been dealing with this issue for the longest time now. I have a Samsung galaxy s7 edge with SwiftKey keyboard and I have tried using all kinds of other keyboards, including the one that comes with the phone, and ALL of them fail to autocorrect properly. Like others have mentioned, it will be RIDICULOUS words in place of what you're trying to write. Like every time I try to write "I'm" it'll replace it with "in". Every. F***ing. Time. Or just about anything I attempt to write gets autocorrected with something far off from what I was trying to say. Many of the examples people on this thread gave of how the autocorrect screws up predictions happen to me too. It's been about two years now where the autocorrect went from stellar to haywire and I have no idea how or why this happened. Now my texting consists of me constantly having to go back and fix words that I didn't want inserted in my messages.

    Like to just make when I tried to write "to write" it corrected me and inserted "go work" even though I spelled write. I'm so tired of dealing with this and finding no solution to my problem.

    I used GBoard but I know several other keyboards do this as well.

    I went into keyboard settings and turned off autocorrection, but left all of the predictive stuff on. That way, if I type a word and misspell it, a list of similar words that I might have meant are along the top for me to choose from. But what I typed stays once I punctuate the word. Misspellings and all.

    I figure it's probably better to send a misspelled word than a word that is entirely different from the one I intended. The former is an obvious mistake, easily explained to the recipient. The latter is just not a game I want to play.

    Yes, the S7 is the worst autocorrect i have ever had!!! It's vocabulary is quite limited, and the things it substitutes are bizarre to obscene! If you try to spell out a word that it doesn't know, it changes it. Boo, Samsung! Thanks for this conversation, I just hour they will fix it! Overall I like the phone, but the spelling thing is infuriating! It changes 3rd to yellow on photos too - really a sunrise spoiler! Wish I had stayed with my S3!

    I'm really glad I found this thread because I thought it was just me. My S7 autocorrect is horrible. The worst to be is that itchanges real words to other real words all the time. I backspace and fix and it corrects it the same way again.

    Anyone have a way to make it better yet?

    Interestingly I found text to speech to be much more accurate, but that is not always practical.

    What are you 15yo?
    But he's right. When you type an error, It's remembered, even tho you correct it every time. If you pay attention to the suggestion bar below, what you choose there becomes your personal dictionary. My most common error is 'of'.. corrects to 'if'..drove me nuts until I corrected it in the suggestion bar. Swype is somewhat better at getting it right.

    Hello to Android Central and everyone here,

    I am writing to you regarding the name of the island of Kastellorizo, where I live and I come from. I have also been authorized to speak on behalf of the island's municipality (Municipality of Megisti).

    We have been using Android devices for years. However, I need to point out a serious mistake being done by the Android spelling checker:

    It writes the Greek name of our island, Kastellorizo, wrongly. More specifically:

    The correct island's name (as shown in all books and documents) is Καστελλόριζο.
    For some reason, the Android spelling checker changes the correct name "Καστελλόριζο",
    and provides the wrong name "Καστελόριζο"! (which has only one lambda "λ").

    The same had been true for the English version, but I am (still) not sure if it has been corrected in all Android devices. The English spelling should be using "Kastellorizo" (with two "l"), instead of the wrong spelling with only one "l", i.e. "Kastelorizo".

    After some big efforts, we have changed the name in Wikipedia, Google Maps and many other major websites, and they now correctly spell it with two "l"s, as Kastellorizo and Καστελλόριζο.

    The wrong spelling that the Android spelling checker is currently providing (Greek and maybe the English) has caused all sorts of problems (for a very long time now) to the inhabitants of the island of Kastellorizo. Please correct them, because the name is being wrongly spread around the huge number of Android devices, causing even more future problems.

    I repeat:

    Correct spelling: Kastellorizo (English), Καστελλόριζο (Greek).
    Wrong spelling: Kastelorizo (English), Καστελόριζο (Greek).

    It will be hugely appreciated if you could help us on this sensitive yet important matter.

    We are trying for years to correct this, and we are not even sure where or who we should talk to. In the meantime, the name is being unfairly spread wrongly, causing us a lot of trouble, and confusing locals and travelers.

    Thank you and all the best,

    Pantazis Houlis

    PS. Apologies if I posted this at the wrong place. Feel free to help me move it anywhere it belongs better.
