    Android phone Keypad vs Laptop Keypad ; Which one makes you faster in Typing?

    All communication electronic devices specifically android phone and laptops comes with a Keypad/keyboard that affords the user to type and put the information he/she desire to send across to the intended recipient.

    Now as much as both device Keypad looks similar, there are some differences that are existent in both of them. Android Keypads are more compacted than that of laptop's. This makes it easier for some to prefer typing using phones than laptops while some are accustomed to laptops usage than phone.

    Personally, I'm more comfortable using android phone Keypads for typing because it makes me faster in typing any message as a result of the auto prediction feature that comes with it.

    Which device Keypad makes you faster in Typing ; Android phone Keypad or Laptop Keypad?

    I don't really text much and the auto-correct tends to be a pain in the butt for me. So I can easily tell you I type WAY slower on my phone.

    On my keyboard, I have trained myself to type quite fast with minimal to no checking of the keyboard. It took me a good 2 years or typing and writing online to actually adjust but I finally got it. Funny thing is that I had to learn the "proper" way to type in school, and it never caught on - actually made my typing worse. lol

    I took a class in touch typing my freshman year of high school, and I've been pretty good at typing on a keyboard since then. I make a ton of mistakes if I try and type really fast, but I type at a generally reasonable pace without needing to look at the keyboard.

    I've never really gotten used to typing on a phone keyboard. My thumbs are pretty big, and even with a phone like a Galaxy, I inevitably end up mistyping something most of the time. It doesn't help that I turned autocorrect off, so I have to go back and manually correct anything that I type wrong, which just takes longer.

    The keyboard should definitely be a faster option for anyone who's at least moderately computer-savvy, unless there's some kind of physical impairment.

    Texting is much easier nowadays and predictive text is very convenient. I remember it taking way over a minute to send a text on my first Nokia phone. It had a monochrome screen and typing was really slow. All caps too.

    As for a keyboard on a computer, your choice of keyboard is certainly important. I hate a lot of laptop keyboard since there's no grip on the keys. Some of the worst I've used felt like my fingers were sliding a bit. I use an old Microsoft keyboard for my PC (Comfort Curve 2000) and it's an odd keyboard, but I love it.

    If you want to improve your typing speed in a fun way you should try some games like The Typing of the Dead. It's based on The House of the Dead, but instead of shooting zombies with a light gun or mouse you have to type words to kill them. Really cool.

    Keyboard, for certain.

    I used to use a phone that had a touchscreen AND a mechanical keyboard, which I loved so much I bought a second... alas, the device eventually became too far obsolete for updated Android applications to function properly on it, and for whatever reason no company has since come out with a phone like it.

    I had one like that, although it ran Windows Mobile. I think this was back in 2008/2009.

    I really respect Toshiba. I was having a few problems with a different phone by them and I talked to one of the bosses there. He said he'd not only take the phone back but give me this much better phone as a replacement with a bunch of memory cards. What a guy. I still have it (Toshiba G900) but haven't touched it in ages since it's mostly obsolete, but I used to enjoy using software like MSN Messenger and Skype, and it was good for watching TV/films on the go as well as games and emulation.

    Remember when phones used hard keys instead of a touchscreen "keyboard"? Well, I hardly can anymore. There are plenty of kids nowadays who have only had touchscreen phones and their only experience using physical phone keys is from landlines or phone booths. (I think phone booths won't last much longer either.)

    Maybe it's because of this film.

    I am not so used to typing on a computer keyboard and am currently at a speed of 30 words per minute but I can tell you for a fact that it is better than using an android keypad, for me at least. The keys are widely spread on a keyboard which minimizes the errors when typing unlike an android or any other phone OS keypad. Sure, there's auto-correct but it only works when you're typing English words. In case you are conversing with another person in any other language except English then my friend you will be in for a ride. Auto-correct sometimes make s me want to go crazy. That's not why I prefer a keyboard though, my main issues is the size of the keypad versus the size of the fingers which as I have seen on this thread does not affect me alone.
