    I have had many Galaxy devices and recently came from the Note 5, for some reason my Note 7 will not correct the most basic of mistakes, my auto correct seems like its working at 20%, everything is turned on like normal... Also does anyone else's home button click way louder than the previous devices... Also i'm not liking how plastic the back feels compared to the note 5, and the vibration seems louder in this phone also... I paid full price for this and i'm thinking about returning it to go back to the Note 5, this one feels so, dare I say cheap... Anyone else experiencing these issues (mainly the auto correct issue?)

    autocorrect, in my opinion, is downright horrible on the samsung keyboard. I use the google keyboard app and it's much better.

    vibration noise I'm ok with since, again in my opinion, most phones have a terrible vibrate and the noise is (likely) psychosomatic in making me think it's stronger and therefore I'll actually feel it.

    On my Note 5 I found the problem to be the lack of the user dictionary. I installed the Google keyboard and it provides the user dictionary, then the Samsung keyboard was much better. However, recently some words do not correct themselves, such as mistakenly putting a number in the word, hav3n't for example, will not auto correct any longer. SwiftKey fixes it though.
