Best Keyboard is just Swiftkey 3, another really good option is Swype.

On my previous devices I always used Swiftkey but on this device, typing with Swiftkey just doesn't seem responsive at all so I went back to the stock ICS keyboard.

Does anyone have keyboard suggestions?

Thanks


Maybe try un-installing and re-installing? Swiftkey works really nicely for me. (CM9)

I've heard and tried them myself that both Swype and Swiftkey are very good. However, TouchPal is also very good, its free and i've gotten used to it :)

There are many good keyboards and which is the best comes down to a matter of taste :) just try a few and decide for urself.

I've switched from TouchPal to GoKeyboard... works great, very responsive, has swipe feature, pack for my language, etc...

I have to agree but I do like them both... although right I am using go keyboard more.

Here's my two favourite, I like a skin that has plenty of room around each key so it minimises the chance of hitting the wrong key.

With SwiftKey 3, am I right in saying it doesn't have swipe and you cannot turn off pop up keys for all skins?? I hate pop up keys more than anything.

I tried different keyboards, but TouchPal is the best. Not the stock version, which is now old.
I found (like others) that some keyboards make the phone slow and laggish.

I would advise to uninstall TouchPal stock version (see my topic on this) and then install it again from Play to get the latest version and an up-datable one.
Also, since the screen of the G300 is very poor in the daylight, I found that having a white background helps a lot, so install the white skin for TouchPal. Default latest version is black.

Yes, auto-complete is very annoying, but can be disabled from the settings.

Has anyone using Swiftkey had a problem where if you power the phone off, say at night, found that the keyboard has reset back to Android Keyboard? I had no problem at all on the trial version but moving to the full version (3) I have this problem. I am on stock 892 with no mods bar being rooted and having Go Launcher running.

Smart keyboard pro for me because I can set the key height - I hate it when the keyboard takes 50% or more of the screen space. It also has some nice built in skins.

I use SlideIT and I like it. It's very quick and has a precise prediction (for Czech lang that is). Too bad I have to turn the swipe mode on everytime I want to write something (some bug maybe, it should be automatic). I kinda liked TouchPal as well but I missed the swipe function of the stock version (newer versions don't come with a Czech language pack).

Smart keyboard pro for me also good to see it getting a mention as its the best keyboard I have used, very simple to customize, although it is not free but there is a trial version.

TouchPal updated a couple of days ago to Version 5 and it is awesome.
