    Do you use physical keyboard?

    do you use your physical keyboard? i only use the virtual keyboard 99% of the time. i got a body glove case and was worried bc the case makes it hard to use the top row of physical keys but quickly realized i wouldnt be using it anyways.

    Coming from iphone, I tried the physical keyboard but have primarily used the virtual one. funny thing is the virtual one looks so tiny in portrait mode but I haven't missed a letter yet.

    I tried to use the physical keyboard, i really did. Coming from the LG Voyager, i'm really used to the physical keyboards, but this phone is in no comparison. So i stick with the virtual one now.
    Resistance is futile.

    So far I only use the physical keyboard when using the browser, so that I can type without taking up half my screen

    Virtual keyboard here as well.

    The physical keybaord has come in handy, though. My wife has always had trouble using virtual keyboards (as on my storm and iPod) and has no problem whatsoever now using my phone thanks to that physical keyboard

    I use the hardware one as a backup for when I have problems (of my own) typing on the virtual.

    I use the virtual keyboard more than the physical one, which is a total surprise to me as I've been very anti-virtual keyboards. I think it says more about how mediocre-to-bad the Droid hardware keyboard is than how good the virtual keyboard is. I can type faster on my BB Pearl w/ SureType than I can on the Droid physical keyboard.

    I use both, but prefer the physical keyboard. I understand about the body glove case, but still like the feel of a real keyboard. I make too many errors with the virtual keyboard and it slows me down considerably.
    Once every sort of mental process has ceased, not a particle of karma is formed.

    What I found is when I have the Body Glove case on I have a much more difficult time typing on the physical keyboard, and I think maybe its due to the added bulk of the device. Plus like the OP said, it makes that top row difficult.

    I have been practicing with the keyboard a lot and am getting better. Though I can bang out emails faster on the landscape virtual one better.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    I use the physical keyboard all the time, I love it. I know most hate it or at least dislike it to a point but I love it and I keep getting faster at it. I like the onscreen ones also for if I'm being lazy or quick or one handed portrait, but when I can, I slide out that bad boy. I've also grown used to the little dpad.
