The physical keyboard on a mobile is a thing of the past, everything is now on screen. This can be a good and bad thing depending on your point of view.
For the last few years the keyboards we find on our mobile devices have been improving in their layout and accuracy, meaning less errors and a faster input rate, further helped by word prediction. The keyboard has really never been so clever.
What has been an issue is the relative lack of consistency between keyboards in their features and layout.
Many opt for after-market solutions such as SwiftKey or Swype due to the advantages they bring.
This is improving as time goes by and LG are keen to show their commitment to such a fundamental part of the smartphone experience.
Smart Keyboard as LG call it is designed to be more useful to you. You can adjust the actual height of the keyboard and in turn the keys based on your preference.
Predicting what you are going to say is always beneficial and can over time, save a considerable amount of keystrokes. As you type a word, what the device thinks you are typing appears above the keyboard. If the result you want appears above, just swipe up on the key and the word will be automatically completed for you, saving you the need to add the extra letters to the word.
Quick Move then allows you to quickly go back and edit previously entered text by sliding along the screen and making the relevant amendments.
If this was not enough, then the keyboard also learns your habits. So if for example you have a tendency to always tap slightly to the left of a particular letter on the keyboard, it learns this and in time assumes you want the letter to the right of your finger tap.
It is these small things that make a big difference when using the LG G3.
The following video highlights the features mentioned and shows you them in action.
