    I find that I seldom use the physical keyboard. It's more convenient for me to use the touch screen Anyone use it more than the physical? :)

    I use the on screen a lot. It recommends me a lot of incorrect words "app" is apparently or something similar. And I constantly have "he" for "the"
    I will try to use physical keyboard next week and see if i like it better

    After installing Swype: 99% touch screen in portrait, 1% physical keyboard.

    Before installing Swype: 75% physical keyboard, 25% touch screen.

    I use the screen when I'm typing something short like a text or a search. I find it easier, myself, to use the physical keyboard when doing a lot of typing, such as an e-mail or a forum post (such as this one)

    Swype seems very cool. :icon_ banana:

    It feels like I am carrying excess weight on the phone now. :(

    Ive never used the keyboard actually. I dont use swype. for me i just program the words like "app" into the dictionary and then it doesnt put "apparently" anymore.. and im satisfied with the stock touch keyboard..

    I used to avoid the physical keyboard because I like the word suggestions on the software keyboards but the new better keyboard app adds suggestions to the hard keyboard.

    I traded in my Eris for the Droid because I wanted the physical keyboard, but now that I have it, I find the keyboard a pain to use with the flattened keys so I added swype and use it all the time.
