    The double-letter glitch with the stock Android keyboard (and with other keyboards that have adopted the code to the stock Gingerbread keyboard, like Better Keyboard 8) is becoming obnoxious.

    It happens so frequently, and not even when typing that fast either. It seems to happen only with the first letter of words... "like tthis" for example, but it'll also happen with the first two letters of a word... "like ththis." It's especially ridiculous when this happens with only two letter words, like... "I'm going toto the movies."

    It's insane how frequent these glitches occur. And I'm not alone. A search in other forums of other phones running the stock Android keyboard will show threads about this exact issue as well.

    A while back I filed a report to Google. If anybody is also experiencing this, please star the report, share, and even add your own experiences if you wish: Issue 14755 - android - Android keyboard glitch: double-letters - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

    I even made a video a while back to show Google:

    It's discussed more in length on this old thread here: xda-developers - View Single Post - Keyboard Becoming Ever More Frustrating To Use

    This glitch has got to be addressed and fixed.

    Well I haven't noticed it and even then I now use Swype as my main keyboard, it works and the glitch isn't there.

    Haven't noticed this, but i could just be relying on auto-correct too much.

    It isn't a problem with the Nexus S 4G,which is weird because they are supposed to be running the same software right?

    Well they could have just fixed it in Android 2.3.4, which is what the Nexus S 4G launched with.

    I've got a Samsung Note 2014 Edition and this is a real pain in the backside! Is there ANY resolution for this. It happens A LOT. In spreadsheet cells it happens when first typing in a new cell. Also happens ALL THE TIME when typing in my security password for my Notes unlock. WHAT IS THE FIX FOR THIS!!!!!????

    VERY FRUSTRATING

    I'm on the Note 4 and it's happening to me too EVERY time I enter any password. I have to manually erase each double letter one at a time because of course I get the blind bullet immediately after so there's no way to "see" which letters are being duplicated. By the way, I'm using the SlideIT keyboard and it happens there too.
