Does anyone have a solution for the horrible autocorrect and predive text (suggests words that are not real even) on the samsung fold. I have had Notes in the past and did not have these ptoblems. Is it possible that it is even fetting worse the longer I have this phone? I am very much regreting soending a ton of money to get a 1T Fold and be constabtly remindibg of how much of a bad decision it was. Please, can someone help - how do I fix this issue??? I hqve downloaded google keyboard but phone will not let me use it. I do not want to switch phone manufacturers but at this point it seems like it may be the only option because this is rediculously frustrating to just get through even writing this, which more time was spent manually guxing messed up spellings than writing yge whole thing! 

Also, anyone have any ideas of how to get a vettter fit on buds plus pro? I've ordered so many types of tips to try keeping the buds from falling out that ive almost spent as much money on tips that I did on the Buds. Does anyone know of a better option???

When you say you can't use Gboard, what kind of problem are you experiencing when you try to set it up? Regarding your Buds, do you have the Buds Plus, the Buds Pro, the Buds 2 Pro? There is no model called Buds Plus Pro.

I can get Gboard to download but the keyboard is not available in all of the apps.
Sorry for confusion on buds - they are Buds 2 Pro

When you go to the Gboard app itself, it should prompt you to set it as the default keyboard. Does this happen? As for the Buds 2 Pro, have other earbuds fit well in the past? Personally, the Buds Pro were a horrible fit for me, but the Buds 2 Pro have been amazing. As everyone's ears are different, you will likely have to continue shopping around for tips that work best for you.

Where are you trying to download the gboard from that it won't let you even download it? I had the same problem with my flip five as far as text and talk wasn't even close to what I'm trying to say I would have to delete and end up typing anyway but I found it to be with so far all my Samsung phone using the Samsung keyboard so I just went to play store downloaded the gboard and it has been perfect since

Same issue. Attached is an image of Word Replace giving a completely stupid edit to non-existent word when I have typed in a real word "doorbell". There are countless other times that it does this, switching a real word I have typed perfectly into a different word or another stupid combo. Sometimes adding 'ing' or changing one letter to make a different word such as changing "pull" to "full". When it comes to correctly spelled words, I'd like samsung keyboard to consider that I might just be the one that actually knows what I meant to say.

I don't want to disable the setting because it has huge potential with slightly mistyped words, but my request is for an update that prevents it from retconning flawlessly typed real words!

Mine is almost unbearable. Literally every single time I type "for" my phone changes it to...F o e (the F capitalized). I tell it to forget the word about every day and it won't stop.

I really wanna love samsung keyboard but the predictive text is a pain for me. Swift key is my go to for 1 specific reason. It has a feature call "quick prediction" in which when enabled allows the spacebar to automatically fill in and replace the word with the middle predicted word.... which 9 times outta 10 is the word your trying to spell. By far the best level of prediction I've used but for all the customizations that samsung offers I didn't see this as an option. Am I mistaken????

I very much agree about the predictive text feature. Especially when utilizing any talk to text features. Seems buggy at times as well, often won't begin talk to text translations at all, even after I restart. It's like it just gets frazzled or something. Is this a bug or am not getting settings right on my end?

I only came here because my frustration with your type and text software reached a level that if Samsung was a person, and in front of me, I would ask them, "why do you make phones that feel like they're trying to fight us? Hopefully my anger wouldn't get back to where it is now, because if it did, I would slap them and throw their product at their face.

If your phone thinks a word is misspelled, stop forcing the phone to select a whole word when I just want to place the cursor next to the letter I want to change. The word I wrote is the right **bleep** word, I just hit a wrong **bleep** letter.

Stop hiding privacy setting so you can keep scraping info.

If I'm texting someone and your autocorrect doesn't recognize a word, it will change it to what it thinks i ment to say as I'm typing, so I stop, go back and erase your word to put mine, and it changes it again. If I do that 3 fricking times or more, maybe your autocorrect should have a way to learn individually used words. The words I'm using are grammatically **bleep** correct

this phone is so smart.... and so dumb.

There's a LOT more but after a few years my agitation is raising while even just trying to explain a few issues so I will stop.

My next phone will be an apple product dispite that I can't stand the company. I will also, in detail, explain all the issues I've had with Samsung phones to everyone I know who asks about it or asks why i switched to apple. I deal with the constant frustration mostly because I can't stand your competition. To me, you've lost the edge that brought me to your products over others.
