    After 3 months with my phone The hardware keyboard has become too hard, the keys are hard as hell so i find myself using the onscreen keyboard instead, is anyone else having this issue?

    Btw whats your favorite keyboard? I think mine would have to be the droid x keyboard, i cant believe this is the only multitouch keyboard on android, and what makes a muktitouch keyboard better u might say, well if u type really fast there will be less errors because the screen is able to register 2 taps at the same time instead of having to wait till u lift finger, i wish the droid x keyboard had long press caracters like the htc keyboard

    Another thing i have noticed is vibration makes virtual keyboards react slower or is it my imagination?

    I personally think swiftkey is garbage. I downloaded it to give it a try, but every time I used the physical keyboard, it would write the words IT wanted to write, not the one I was actually trying to type. Uninstall.

    I am a fan of Swype, but right now, I'm just using the default Android Keyboard.

    Another vote for the HTC keyboard. Be sure to install the companion app "clicker". That gives you a calibration procedure for the keyboard. It works great.

    The main reason I bought the droid over the some other phone was the hard keyboard.
    with in hours I learned I hated it. Stock on screen keyboard user here.

    what makes these other keyboard apps so great?

    Still Swype for me.

    Try some out. You can't beat first hand experience in determining which is best suited to you.

    Swipe and Swiftkey are the two best so far.. And since they are so different, you may just have to try each for a week or two..

    I like swype, but my fat fingers would cover up the keys where I needed to go next, and I kept making mistakes. I tried swift key too, but everytime I put an "S" in, it changed it ti a "Z". Many other times it would just put in whatever word it wanted.
