    The Mate 8 comes with a version of the Swype Keyboard specifically for Huawei phones. It's a really nice keyboard, but you may want to change it. There are dozens of great keyboard apps to choose from. We recommend SwiftKey from the Play Store.

    Most keyboard apps will guide you through the process of changing the default keyboard. In the event that they don't, here's how to do it.

    1. Open the Settings app and select Advanced settings
    2. Select Language and Input
    3. Select Default keyboard
    4. Tap on Configure input methods
    5. Toggle the switch for the keyboard app you'd like to use (more than one keyboard can be enabled at a time)
    6. Press the back button
    7. Select Default keyboard again
    8. Choose the keyboard you'd like to use
    Keyboard apps come with their own settings and options. You can open the keyboard app at any time to adjust how it works, or follow the steps above to return to the default Swype keyboard.
