    I`m very happy w my Nexus 6p. But I've noticed that the keyboard has become painfully slow, to the point of being cumbersome. Many times the phone does that "zoom in" when it thinks I've tapped the screen 3 times, but in reality I'm just trying to type. I've even tried downloading other keyboard apps, but it doesn't help. It happens in apps like facebook, adnd also in text messaging w the app that came on the phone. Anyone have any suggestions? I searched for this issue here on the forum but didnt find anything. Apologies if i missed it, feel free to point me in the right direction... thank you!

    Hi @chacha76 and welcome to Android Forums :)

    A few quick questions to help me help you help us all and such:

    1) Have you tried using Facebook's mobile site instead of the app? That app is an absolute hog. Some of your performance issues could be from that.

    2) Which text messaging app are you using? Google actually includes two that can be used for that purpose: Hangouts (predominantly green) and Messenger (blue). Hangouts in particular has a whole slew of performance issues on its own. I can't speak to Messenger's performance though.

    3) What keyboard apps have you tried? I generally find the Google Keyboard to be the quickest and most fluid. I know lots of folks swear by Swiftkey but it's always turned into a laggy mess for me.

    4) Does your keyboard slow down in other applications - say email?
