    I've been wondering what's the best keyboard in the market. Ive been using Swiftkey x and its way too unresponsive, so I'm back to using the stock keyboard. Any suggestions?

    Have you given Swype a try? It takes some getting used to but before too long you'll find it to be very powerful.

    I'm addicted to Swype, I don't know what I'd do without it

    SwiftKey is awesome... I also use it on my honeycomb tablet.

    Hi, I'm using the SwiftKey x and loving it? Find it very fast, and extraordinarily predictable. Bionic

    I've tried a number of keyboards and my overall favorite would be thumb keyboard. I felt I could type much faster and be more accurate with it than swiftkey and others. I'm currently using the stock ICS keyboard though and it seems really good.

    SlideIt & Ultra are my two favorites from the market and both have several themes available...

    Swiftkey X is still my favorite. It learns typing habits from SMS, Twitter, Facebook and other things. I have actually been able to do almost complete sentences by predictions alone.

    I've tried a number of them and found I don't like swiping much. My finger's always blocking the letter I want to swipe to I guess. The one I really love is SwiftKey X - it predicts words I haven't even started typing yet!! I guess it bases it on what I've written in the past although sometime it seems to be related to the post I'm replying to. I don't know how, but I can sometimes type almost a whole sentence by just picking the word they predict. Very cool - and fun!

    I use Swype but Slide it is virtually the same thing right?? What would be the advantages of using Slide It. Convince me, and I'll buy it lol

    I tried the swype, typing is still faster. As for Swiftkey, its been lagging on me. Maybe it doesn't support razr?

    Yes, it is a multi-touch and swipe type keyboard - I never could adapt to swype...I didn't like how the suggestions showed up and it never seemed very accurate for me. It was also not very customizable...SlideIt is accurate, customizable and it just feels better to me...I know everyone has different opinions and Swype is very popular...I am a swipe typer (90% of the time) and needed a keyboard that I liked - that is where SlideIt came in as does Ultra Keyboard.

    I use both Swiftkey X and Swype and both drive me nuts. While using Swiftkey I can't seem to hit the correct keys (it's like the screen is out of calibration), and with Swype randomly it will pause halfway through a word.

    The ICS keyboard although it looks plain is very accurate and it's suggestions are very spot on and helpful.

    Are there any free good keyboards that actually have large keys? The keys on tje bionic are huuuuge and i love them but doesnt offer much in the way of features. I tried the swiftkey x trial and ics keyboard and they were too small of keys.

    I used swift key which was nice but I like to Swype....so I used Swype but it is always messing up on my words so I am constantly having to make corrections.

    That's when I found Flex t9....perfect for me. It has everything and I make far less mistakes.
