    I am the only one that can't write fast without a mistake. I came from android and I had swiftkey which had helped me a lot to type very fast with and without swipe ( wp8 should add this feature). Now I type very slowly because of many mistakes.

    I prefer the WP8 keyboard over all thre Android ones available. I use swiftkey a lot and it's good, but for me not quite as good as the windows phone keyboard.

    I preferred the regular google keyboard from the market. Never had any problems with typing on android...

    On WP though.. I feel that if I type slow, I actually make more mistakes. If I type fast it seems the accuracy jumps a ton. So i just gun it whenever I type on my Lumia.

    My only problem with the WP8 keyboard is that it doesn't have the sliding feature. I first used that with Swype on Android, then the stock Android keyboard got it, and now I use Swiftkey. Now I'm so used to it that I can hardly type on any keyboard that doesn't slide. That said, the WP keyboard is pretty good other than that. I don't find it any worse than Android's (without using the sliding feature) or iOS's keyboard.

    I have found that I have to type horizontally to be able to type with any speed. And I use my index fingers to type instead of my thumbs. I just can't type with my thumbs at all, haha.

    I miss swiftkey too because of the slide option and the very good correction system . Microsoft has to allow 3rd party keyboards

    Its disappointing, very poor correction. Funny thing is, Microsoft has awesome auto correct function for MS office, why cant they apply on phones.. Stupid. And Blackberry in turn uses all those features of auto correct on their all phones..

    you are kidding right . I did a test to write 2 sentences without looking and in my old android phone I didn't do any mistake but in wp8 keyboard I couldn't understand what I wrote. And that's because of 3rd party keyboards and good predictions

    the speed I type with on WP is unmatchable by any android device. In addition to its amazing auto correct capabilities makes it without doubt the best keyboard I used. (I didn't try iPhone).

    I think you nailed it there with the habit, or what you're used to. That's probably more important for speed & accuracy than anything else. For example, I am used to using sliding keyboards. This makes it harder for me to type on one that isn't (WP & iOS). But I'm sure that some of you could type circles around me on a non-sliding keyboard,.

    Wut.....?
    haha :)


    I do hate how quick to change words some keyboards are....as in the iOS keyboard. One false move and Oregon becomes Orgasm... WP is more prone to leaving the word incorrect and easily spotted with the "incorrect line". Also, when it DOES auto change the word, I think its functioning to get the word back to the way you want it is the easiest process of them all.

    But if you are in the road and you want to write something fast with one hand then autocorrect is very useful. If you have android try fleksy for few days and then compare them

    Texting while driving just seems insane to me, but that's just my opinion.

    WP8 keyboard is the best I've used yet on any mobile, I tend to just type the first few letters of a word and then use the suggestion bar.

    It does improve as you use it I've found and it learns your typing style. I've just switched to a L925 today and it's not as "predictable" as my L820 was, but the 820 was poor a year ago too.

    Mate, honestly, you should either be banned from having a mobile phone or banned from driving. What gives you the right to place the priority of other people's lives below that of your Twitter status updates etc.? Do you have any idea of the devastation you are threatening to cause to other families when you could take away their loved ones so carelessly?

    I hope you are just a fool who can be educated, otherwise you are simply evil.

    Re. the keyboard, it's not bad but it suffers from the same issue as many spell checkers. For example, the common mistype of 'fro' instead of 'for' is never picked up. Honestly, there are few occasions when an obscure US contraction from the 1970s is going to be the obvious intent of the user. Especially when they do not have their phone set to American English. Lunacy is common place.
