    So I've had my Note 2 for about a day so far. And I'm enjoying it thus far. But one of the biggest complaints I've read about really relevant to this phone is in regards to the stock keyboard.... so I wanted to download and try a few. So this being said, can everyone post their favorite keyboard here?? Thanks folks!

    Kii Keyboard. Does everything. You can use split keyboard and move the left and right sides in and out and still have numbers on the main keyboard.

    I used Swiftkey in the past and just didn't like it very much. So far though I am loving the Swiftkey Flow betas. I like it even better than Swype and Touchpal. :)

    +1 for swift key flow! Perfect! The only thing can make it better is a separate row of number keys.

    I really enjoy the stock keyboard on my Nexus 4. I'll be looking for a port of it to put on my Note 2 for sure.

    I started using the Swiftkey3 trial today and am really, really liking it. I think I will be sticking with this keyboard.

    Used swift key forever, but then got into swiping. Tried swift key flow for a bit, but I believe the Swype that came installed on the Note is the best yet.

    I used to have swiftkey but honestly i get too many typing errors on it. Even with the stock keyboard my typing errors are way less. The best keyboard for me is the iphone keyboard which you can download from the play store.

    I don't like the stock keyboard, when on portrait, and in a browser it come up in a format with too small of a space bar and I keep hitting the period. I don't understand why its one format in browsers and one format in messaging or email.

    I have tried others, but have you noticed you can't switch to the S Pen from them? Or am I missing something here? I have tried 3 and they don't allow the change like the stock keyboard does. I've had to go back to stock and its VERY annoying!

    It's not on the store yet since it's beta. Just Google it and you'll get the download.

    I love 'gesture' typing and my phone came with Swype which was pretty good. Then I started using the beta version of SwiftKey Flow and that was pretty good as well. Both programs had their strengths and weaknesses. Then I stumbled onto Kii beta and it blows the other two out of the water. No contest. Great program.

    Flow mistypes too much for my liking. And Swype....why do they put the voice key right next to the space bar and period. I keep hitting it.

    Flow could be customized to remove that voice key. It's by far the best swipe and type keyboard I used to date. Beta expires at the end of the month and I'm ready to buy it!

    I like the stock one because of the one handed operation, s pen integration, voice control, row dedicated to numbers, easy access to the clipboard. Whenever I look at other keyboards I end up having to give up half of those features. I just wish there was auto correct.
