    It's that magical you won't even notice what happens ;)

    I'll give people a couple of actual keyboard tips. Most will know of these anyway, but new users may not:

    - If you double tap the Uppercase upwards arrow key, it will stay on Uppercase, so you can type a word in all Caps more easily.
    - If you tap and hold the "123" key, and then slide your finger onto a number or special character, then release, it will type the special character then return you automatically to the qwerty keyboard without having to tap the "abcd" key to return to the qwerty keyboard.

    Are you serious that this is the only time that you noticed it? I mean I only got my Lumia 820 last June but I already know this feature since last year its on the Windows Phone 8 Tips and Tricks Forum. I think you need to read it!
