The Keyboard After The Update: It Is Awful.

So Samsung decides to have a new system update. Cool, swag, I love updates. I'm excited for new emojis. I update my phone, thinking "There's no way Samsung would ever decide to update their keyboard layout, making it drastically different from the global default." But oh, was I wrong. 

 

The top bar. Fine on it's own, a cool idea I suppose, a nice little bar where you can access GIFS and the new translate feature. However, where Samsung failed was putting the emoji button onto the top bar. This is awful. Every other phone has their emoji button on the keyboard, along with the letters and special characters. Putting it on the top bar is absolutely awful, and there's no way to change it. Disabling the top bar takes away your ability to use emojis at all. There's no option to place it back onto the keyboard. Samsung, I need you to do better. 

 

This update seriously made me consider switching to Apple.

Have you tried the Keys Cafe module from Goodlock? There you can customize where you'd like your buttons (Make your own keyboard) and also customize the color as well (Style your own keyboard). I like having my emoji key at/on the bottom as well. Hope this helps.

Is it a new app I have to download? If so, I might as well switch to Apple. I shouldn't have to download new apps just to make my phone work in the way I want it to

omg, so sorry for the late reply. this is the forth thread that I've gotten a reply but no notification, ugghhhh. So yes its a different app called Goodlock and it has different modules you install for certain features. Keys Cafe has to deal with the keyboard and how you want it to look/function.

I too request that the emoji key gets moved as a button, maybe as a long press of the return key like in swiftkey

Also, I would love for my keyboard to have access to my contacts so it can learn their names onto the dictionary.
