    Not me. I've always used SwiftKey.

    I can't imagine using any other keyboard than Switkey.

    The deal breaker for me is that SwiftKey does not have handwriting recognition, so I use stock. Until the update today SwiftKey also did not have the number row up top which was another big plus for the stock keyboard. But the lack of handwriting makes SwiftKey unusable for me with the Note 3.

    If the choice was between the two you mention, I would certainly pick the Samsung keyboard. But Swiftkey is the superior keyboard available and now with the upgrade to version 5 with the options of a separate top row of number keys, the Enter key always being the Enter key, and a whole bunch of new keyboard themes Swiftkey is even farther ahead of the rest of the field.

    I just tried SwiftKey because stock was not as responsive. So far, so good!

    that's exactly what I was thinking... I use handwriting on the stock Samsung keyboard on a daily basis. Using the SwiftKey keyboard makes switching too much trouble....

    I like the stock keyboard because of the number keys but also because the microphone button is easier to access than on swiftkey. It is so easy to simply press the microphone button and dictate a text to someone.

    Always use SwiftKey. I have tried stock but after 1 day went right back to SwiftKey.

    Based on the above responses(100% love for SwiftKey), am I correct in assuming that most Note 3 owners don't bother using the stylus for handwriting? That's the number one reason I have the phone....

    I would think that would be the case. I'm a SwiftKey user as well.

    Do you use the stylus for text messaging? It seems to me it would be slower than typing on the keyboard.

    Probably because it's a graphic of some sort. Could just use text based smileys and it wouldn't do that. Not real hip to emoji in general since they don't always show up properly in different phones/OS/SMS Apps. etc...

    But, in particular, I'm not digging the new emoji update with Swiftkey in Handcent. Changed the way the smiley button functions compared to other text entry fields. Irritating to remember the difference.

    As for this thread, I use Swiftkey (non cloud). Not much for the stock KB, but I would like to have handwriting entry. :-/

    I've tried both, but stick with the Google keyboard. My muscle memory for the punctuation at the top is too set at this point to change.

    Between the two, I prefer the stock keyboard. But, after trying them all, I found ai. Keyboard and haven't looked back.

    I use my S pen most of the time and Swiftkey works great with it. The trick is to not cover the phone's glass or cover it with a tempered glass screen that has a very slick outer surface. I use the second option, i.e., a slick surfaced tempered glass screen protector.

    SWIFTKEY is the best. Makes sending texts so much easier, don't have to look at the phone anymore.

    Swiftkey does not include handwriting recognition, which is what the post you responded to was about. It has nothing to do with a screen protector.
