hi, after using my WP8 device since October, I've noticed that they word suggestions are much worse than on my lumia 900.
For example if I type "Glaf" on WP7 it will change automatically to Glad, but wont do that on WP8, it'll just highlight that it is incorrect. I've noticed on other words too, has something been changed or do I need to just change some settings, any help to bring the keyboard for my lumia 820 on key with my lumia 900 would be appreciated.

I don't know. But i thought the wordflow keyboard also has a learning curve. So if you correct the same word manually a few times, isn't it correct it automatically it self? It did on my 8x, even in Dutch. Dutch is very good implanted in the auto correction and word flow.

I also noticed the way auto correction works is unique to the area or region you are located in. If you are in a country where English is not primary language, the auto correct doesn't work as you may want to throw in local words in English. But if you set you local region to English US, auto correct works like a charm.

I personally hate the keyboard. It may be great for people that type really slow, but I type relatively fast on mine and it doesn't correct words often enough for me. The most frustrating thing is when i type a word wrong and you miss every letter by one key and it can't figure the word out. That's the one thing I enjoyed more on my iphone than my lumia. Another issue I have is with the space bar and delete button. Way too often I hit the space bar and it doesnt react fast enough. Ive gotten used to it but still don't like the keyboard overall

I have my keyboard set to English (United Kingdom) just as I did with my L900. I also tried resetting the keyboard. I also checked all the settings were correct and the same as with my L900, but doesn't seem to work. not sure what the problem could be here?

Not to start an argument, I used a 920 for a while and found the keyboard far better than iOS, but my Blackberry Z10 keyboard and predictive text /autocorrect is just way beyond anything else I've used. And I've used them all!

I'm one of the few that find the BB10 keyboard suggestions irritating...the keyboard itself is not bad though.
I've found with my 920 that it seems to be learning in time as it keeps getting better and better...I do find I miss the spacebar more often but that has to do with the size of my hands and the size of the screen more than anything else....I can fly though a paragraph and only have to fix a word or two usually if I didn't look closely while typing
