As Samsung is launching new phones in its popular Note series, the old phone in the series is getting in trouble. Recently Note II owners got new system update which was approximately 104.88 MB. This update might have bring some fixes into system but left over an irritating issue with Samsung Keyboard.
Those who have used Samsung phones, especially Note Series, might have familiar with Predictive Text feature of keyboard. This feature actually predicts what user is going to type and provide some suggestions from which user can select and also tries to predict next word user would probably use thus saving users time and energy while typing. Another good functionality with keyboard was ‘Auto Spacing’, this feature is for automatically inserting spaces between words. This both feature together makes it super easy for user to type something.
The recent update in Samsung Galaxy Note II has introduced a bug in Auto Spacing feature that is it inserts 2 spaces instead of 1. So if you type ‘he’ it will give you suggestions ‘hello’ and when you click on suggestion it will write ‘hello ‘; 2 spaces after hello. So a simple sentence like ” Hi, How are you?’ becomes ‘Hi , How are you ? ‘ with predictive text and auto spacing on. If you disable auto spacing than it does not include any space at all, so its either 2 or nothing for space. This is very annoying for those who are spending their most of time messaging and doing social updates, and using note 2 phone.
Someone has also reported a bug into Samsung developer forum, but still there is no answer from Samsung; so user’s have to wait until Samsung sends a new update which resolves this. Meanwhile there are some alternative keyboards available as suggested by some user on forum.
So if you are using Samsung Galaxy Note II, installed latest updates and now getting unwanted spaces between words than You are not alone my friend, there are lots of others out there, including me (Yes I do own Samsung Galaxy Note II).
Some people have also reported to have similar issues with other Samsung phones like S4, so this might not be only for Note II.
If anyone of you surprisingly able to find a unique and perfect solution or get latest news about this, please comment on this post so others can know as well.
