    Yup it's a known problem. I personally haven't experienced it, but no denying that it's a problem for some if not many of us, I'm just lucky and haven't ran into it. Hopefully they fix it

    I used the stock keyboard for one day and then I got swift key.... which is the best to me but I didn't experience any lag with the stock keyboard that can remember...

    Try SwiftKey for 30 days for free...

    If I type real slow it seems ok, but If I'm hammering away through a small books worth of text it gets worse and worse as I go. And the device actually starts to heat up like the CPU is getting pegged. After getting out of the keyboard and/or the app i was in, the device cools down and all is well. Strange. I really hope it is not any kind of hardware problem. :frown:

    Giving SwiftKey x a test run. Wow this is much faster. Glad I picked this up during the ten cent sale.

    I used aitype and the keyboard lag is there in landscape mode. I am hoping 4.03 fix all the lag. Those testing it have noticed a boost in speed.

    Hehe yeah but i truly prefer the stock keyboard. This one isnt putting apostrophes in for me like when i type im, isnt, dont, etc. When i tap on those words and pick a suggestion from the dropdown, it wont take the suggestion..

    I've been a Swype user since the day it came out. I can't use anything else. I cannot type on stock keyboards. Tried Swift Key, hated it! Installed a Swype apk and all is well again :)

    As for the stock keyboard, the lag is present in landscape mode. Also, tapping on words and selecting a corrected option does not stick in landscape mode either.

    These don't seem to reproducible in portrait mode.

    Been driving me crazy because I type pretty fast in landscape and it can't keep up. Doing it in portrait works but feels a bit cramped.

    Same here I'm very fast with the built in keyboard it sucks when it starts geekin out. i pretty much type strictly in landscape except when doing a query like searching the market.
