    You can't "go back", about the best you can do is find one in Play that you like and install it. I happen to like the one in 4.3, but that's just personal taste, and the S-Pen makes it an easy one to use. I used AnyKey for a long time. I still use MyPhoneExplorer if I want to transfer a lot of data from my laptop to my phone (copy, paste into the input window), and I use a real full-size keyboard with an OTG cable if I want to type a lot of data into the phone.

    If you dont like it then I'd recommend Google Keyboard. It makes your keyboard just like a stock Google devices. It's very nice. I actually prefer the new Samsung updated keyboard though so I switched back to it from Google's. All personal preference. I did notice that Google updated the keyboard though and it made it "dumber" at predicting and correcting words

    I'm not seeing much of a difference on this new keyboard... if the update is like how the s4 is then why didn't we get the s4 keyboard? I like that keyboard how it has the numbers on the top rather then having to switch over to them.

    If you guys want ported keyboards, i.e. Note 3 with number row above letters and emoji support, then you can get it from here [12 DEC!!]Note 3 Keyboard For Galaxy s3 4.3 (MJ9, MK6) With Emoji Support. - xda-developers - NOTE: like most ported keyboards from other Samsung ROMs you have to flash them through a custom recovery and therefore you have to be rooted. This mod is for deodexed Samsung ROMs only.
    Make a Nandroid backup before flashing, as you always should.

    P. S. before flashing the mod clear cache and dalvik in the recovery!!!

    I never used the Samsung keyboard. It feels horrible and I find it less accurate than many other keyboards out there. I personally love Google Keyboard, it's perfect and super smooth.
