    There has been plenty of discussion regarding the different keyboards and ways to input text on your phone so I thought I'd make a poll to see what the community uses.

    Let me know if there was any option I missed and maybe a mod could add it.

    Also, I realize some phone's Stock keyboard is not the standard Android keyboard, so consider the Stock option whatever keyboard is your phone's default.

    Need to be able to pick physical keyboard & another one for people with a physical keyboard.

    However, I use physical keyboard 99% of the time. I can't type on the regular D1 soft keyboard. But I just upgraded to Swiftkey. This might change me over to 99% Swiftkey.

    I don't have a phone with Swype preinstalled, but I'm guessing its not the default keyboard that gets enabled, so I'd choose the Swype option.

    I probably over complicated things with the options...I just wanted to see how many people use swype, how many people use a third party keyboard thats not swype, and how many people just use what the default.

    Me too! I make a new one from scratch whenever I change themes or grow bored with the one I've got installed.

    I was using Swype and liking it well enough. Then a got an app that searches its database as you type. Swype waits until you have the whole word before putting it into the field, so it kind of negated the advantage of using the app.

    Now I'm using Swiftkey most of the time, and happy with it. I might switch back to Swype when I need to enter a lot of text if I think about it. I love the way I can quickly switch between keyboards. Heck, I even keep the Graffiti keyboard handy just incase I'm feeling nostalgic.
