    Since two months I am the happy owner of a Samsung Galaxy S II. Previously I used an iPhone for two years.

    The Android powered Samsung works great and it pleasantly surprised me, but the keyboard is annoying the hell out of me.

    Does anybody has a clue if there is a better keyboard software available that comes close to the accuracy of the iPhone? Tried GO-keyboard already after a suggestion of friend but it still isn't good enough.

    I find the keyboard on my HTC to be very good indeed, although I have no experience with iPhones.

    Try "keyboard from Android 2.3" in the market.

    First 2 comments on there say how much better it is on Samsung Galaxy.

    I just downloaded it myself as well. Wow! much better than standard Android keyboard. It even works great on my LG Optimus one! :) Thanks Stuart!

    Is this "keyboard from Android 2.3" different to the stock keyboard then as the SII runs Android 2.3 anyway :confused:
