    With the "infinity" screen, the keyboard also flows all the way to the edges, making typing very annoying especially when using those keys near the edges. Also type accuracy is bad too. Anyone else thinks so?

    You don't seem to like anything about the S8, surprised you still have one. I have no problems at all with Swype, or Swiftkey for that matter. Keyboard is very easy to change.

    Google keyboard works great. I've never owned a screen with a curved edge either. Zero issues.

    Yes, I found the stock keyboard difficult to use too. I struggled with many spelling mistakes, and the autocorrect is not very good. I tried the google keyboard, but didn't have a lot of success with it either. Swiftkey works like a charm for me though.

    No issues typing with Gboard for me. The edge doesn't mess with typing as bad as previous devices.

    Maybe you should go grab another phone. All of your threads are negative.

    I don't find the keyboard hard to use,at all on the s8. In fact, I love the,tactile feedback. And how everything is layed out so conveniently. Plus, due to Samsung's theming engine, it looks awesome with my phone theme of iron man overall.

    Yeah, I'm with diggity here. Default keyboard is a dread for me to use. It becomes worse when I enlarge it so have it at default again. Swiping does work pretty good, probably due to the keys being too close to eachother.
    And mind you all, I've used most galaxy models so this is definitely a different keyboard, although I don't have much problems with the edges.

    I figure some people can be very negative, but that doesn't mean everything they say is invalid.

    I have been using SwiftKey since I first got the S4 back in 2013. I have no issues using this keyboard on the S8 Plus. Landscape and portrait are very comfortable for me.

    I have no issues with the keyboard. I use stock and it's been working well for me since I got the phone.

    You could go to your keyboard settings and resize it to fit inside of your edges (That is what I do)

    It is under the customization, "Keyboard size and layout"
    -Settings
    -Language and Input
    -On-Screen Keyboard
    -Samsung Keyboard
    -Scroll down and select Keyboard size and layout
    -Drag left and right bars to just inside the rounded edge

    I have had no problems at all with the stock keyboard. If you do not like it, SwiftKey and Gboard are very good alternativesツ

    I kinda wonder if anyone uses the default keyboard lol everyone here uses either gboard,swiftkey or swype, i always replaced the default samsung board as it's auto correct for french is attrocious.

    I always did, this is the first time I need something like Gboard. At default the keys sit too close to eachother. Samsung must have little children in mind for their customers with that red tint and narrow keyboard.
    Gboard works for me btw.

    I could understand why someone would have issues with the curved screen. I'm not a fan of them personally. But I'm 100% that there are plenty of solutions available to make your issue better if not go away completely if you are willing to put the time in.
