    I think the only thing that I really like about the stock keyboard is that it will suggest my entire email address after I type a letter or two and it has a .com button. Its overall accuracy is horrible though so I gave up on using it and am using Gboard.
    BlackBerry keyboard learns and suggests email addresses. No .com button though

    I like the Samsung keyboard. Just suck typing on it for some reason lol. Was reading this thread earlier and seen everyone talking about Gboard so I downloaded it and gave it a shot. I was able to set it up to look similar to the Samsung keyboard, which I like. Also love that I can change the theme of the keyboard. Finally have the black keyboard I always wanted with no borders on the keys.
    Does gboard have the option like the stock Samsung one to choose the user defined button to use clipboard, emoji or settings. I use clipboard quite a lot and like being able to set that hot key as clipboard.

    I suppose if it suggests email addresses then I don't need the .com button.
    But can you swype type on it?

    Since downloading gboard, I'm a lot more accurate in my typing and I find the autocorrect works way better. That's the biggest thing about the Samsung keyboard.

    One thing I really liked about iPhone was the keyboard over Android, but not anymore. Gboard is the way to go, but I don't really have experience with a bunch of different ones.

    Yes it does do Swype.
    Another tip for those using the Blackberry Keyboard:
    To access numbers and symbols quicker, instead of clicking the symbols button, just swipe down on the keyboard to cycle through.
    And long-pressing a letter brings alternates characters from different languages (e.g. a vowel with a german umlaut, or french accents).

    Finally switched from stock Samsung to Gboard. Once you go into the settings & choose what matters to you makes all the difference in the world. Like adding a dedicated row for numbers or having long press symbols etc. Not going back. The glide or swipe typing is much better than stock too.

    I have been a swiftkey user for years.

    After about 2 weeks on Gboard.... I have to say I love the swipe it is very accurate and I get less stupid auto correction (like duck instead of.... well you know). It is even more accurate than SwiftKey. I miss SwiftKey's predictions of Twitter users and emails, plus predictive text in almost every text box that Gboard doesn't always do, for example usernames.

    Not sure which I will stick with yet as both have a small compromise when using them.

    Exactly the same boat I am in. Used Swiftkey for years and always swore by it.

    The lack of prediction in some fields even while doing Google search is just stupid. But I moved to Gboard about a month ago and as you said, swipe is amazing compared to Swiftkey. And also have to agree with less stupid predictions.

    Surprisingly, I am sticking with Gboard for now but the lack of predictions in even Google search is driving me nuts.

    Google is pretty good about improving things and listening to feedback. I'm sure Gboard will get better with time. Swype is almost perfect for me on Gboard.

    Either one is way better than stock.
