    I am finding this keyboard that comes with the phone makes ridiculous suggestions for word replacements, and corrections that really don't make sense and had much better results with my iPhone. Then I read posts about keyboards they use and love. But I have a concern after downloading 2: when I am about to select the keyboard it says:

    "Turn on the selected keyboard? SwiftKey (same for GBoard) may be able to collect all the text you type, including personal data such as passwords and credit card numbers."

    Should I be concerned?

    Nope. Just role with it. The gboord is the best. Let it sync up to your Gmail account as it's got a ton of learned words already waiting on you. It doesn't store your credit card numbers to my knowledge. I use the Gboord on all my Android devices. Only a certain color with boarders. I also like the preferences Gbosrd gives you. Ive used Swift key but I always come back to Gboard. It's the best. Here's my set up right here. I use this set up on every Android device I use or have used.

    On my S3 I used the standard Samsung keyboard and it worked great for typing in two different languages. Then I moved to GBoard for the iPhone and was disappointed to find that it couldn't cope with two languages and now use Swiftkey on the S8 which handles Spanish and English seamlessly.
    Best keyboard I've ever used.

    You like Swift key over the Gboard? Just for language or just in general? I've always used the Gboard on all my Android devices. Maybe I should give Swift key a chance then. What are your thoughts?

    I've just downloaded SwiftKey and it's nice. I like it so far. Haven't decided on color keyboard yet. Here's what I'm looking like right now.

    Question, what is the method you make to take a screenshot from your phone to the forum? I know how to take a screenshot but curious from there what you normally do to get the result pasted above?

    I've just installed Gboard and it works a heck of a lot better on the S8 than it did on the iPhone. ie it can use both languages without having to manually switch, which I find an absolute must. My native language is English of course and typing in Spanish takes longer, so the auto-suggest is a must have, particularly with those accents.
    To be honest, I'm now torn between Swiftkey and Gboard...

    I use the volume down and power key at the same time. Here's another of a keyboard I'm thinking of setting on.

    Yes that is correct. Volume down and power key is always how I do my screen shots. Here's another keyboard in watermelon which looks too pink to me. I'm rolling with orange I believe

    Here's what I'm rolling with on my keyboard color. Now I've got to decide on the right sound. There are a lot of choices. Android is what I'll probably role with.

    Thanks for the heads up on swift key. This isn't a bad keyboard at all. I'll give it a go for a while over my beloved gboard.

    Second icon from the left is where I pull my screen shots from. It'll be sitting there first picture available to you. Do you see the icon I'm speaking of? It's the second one from moving from the left.

    You got it! That's it. Screen shot then just apply the pic seconds after you take it.
