    It is very difficult to enter text in the Samsung Galaxy Duos, I permanently hit the neighbour keys. Is it like it commonly is or is it me, who just is unable to do it?

    Y Duos right? Are you using qwerty? Well with a screen that small I won't be surprised.

    Yes, Duos is right. And yes, I am using qwertz (z instead of y). OK, very small keys, so I hope it is the keyboard.

    Do you have large fingers? Try a keyboard which uses swiping rather than poking, something like Swype.

    I had bought one, not really tried out until now, good idea. To get contact / a reaction seems to be a bit diffuculty when touching the display (but using the fingers it sometimes is very difficulty to cause a reaction either).

    Yes, fingers are larger than normal. Yes, I had tried out Swype, it is installed on my phone, but as I touch the neighbour keys at the first touch and when swiping and at the end character, I am not able to hit the right characters like it seems.

    You could use an alphanumeric style keypad. Select the Samsung keypad, then go into its settings and choose 3x4 layout.

    OK, I will try it out, thanks. So it is already installed on the phone, if I see it right.
