New Xperia, new problems - Predictive Text - how do I disable...

I've got the new XZ - I have been a Sony customer for years, I've had the **bleep**ty phones and the good ones - although my last 2 Xperia's have all suffered from a cracked screen a month or two away from finishing my contract so I've had to take out a new one each time.

 

So I now have the XZ, I'm finding it difficult to like it at the moment. For starters, I'm English, I want a simple QWERTY keyboard like on my Z5 one which I can disable predictive text etc.

 

This thing is changing a lot of my words and it's getting right on my 10 bobs, how do I disable this SHUT application?

 

Also, the only keyboards available, Japanese, Chinese, Google Voice Typing and the Swiftkey, what happens if I don't want to use any of these FLECKING things, I'm FUNKED aren't I?

type on google 

Xperia keyboard apk mirror ... Download the stock or say original Xperia keyboard as an apk file 

 

 

and leave Swiftkey ... its very irritating .. you can't disable auto predict completely

Re: Impossible to remove autocorrect from Swiftkey keyboard?

Just bought the XZ, and got back to Sony after 2 years with Samsung. well, Also dislike the swiftkey. It says its customable in every way. 

LIke the skin options in SWIFTKEY, but cant find a 3X4 ( abc) layout, for portrait mode. I `m old school,, and like that input method best. 

Is there a way to get 3x4 in swift? 

 

Tnx

Only good thing on SwiftKey keyboard are gestures like swipe from right to left for deleting... I don't use themes.

Everything else is crap.

Xperia keyboard is much better especially in accuracy when typing.

And you can turn off automatic space. Can you do this on SwiftKey keyboard? No. This is not automatic space because it gives you space after every word correction or end of sentence. You can't log on some sites in Crome if you don't delete space at the end of username when you tipe with SwiftKey keyboard. Same thing when you search city on some weather apps. No city. Frustrating. I don't need automatic space after word correction!

Xperia keyboard is the best keyboard I use.

Hi. 

I downloaded the Xperia keyboard (thank you Sunking) but I still cannot turn off predictive text, any suggestions?

This is the main reason why I don't like swiftkey keyboard and it's quite annoying...
