Yeah, Samsung Keyboard. Is there a better one? 

 

 

 

Nothing about contacts under the keyboard settings... :(

I've tried Swiftkey, but feel more comfortable with Swype.

I've grown quite fond of Flesky. The backwards swipe to delete is awesome and better than Googles and Swiftkeys implementation of it.

My s7 Samsung keyboard has a 'link to contacts' toggle under the smart option. I have formerly used the google keyboard using the continuous input "swype" and found it good.

Here y'go:

Yes funny how we have gone months with no updates to AOD yet within a week of the note7 being pulled we get the an update.  This is why I hate samsung, they hold things back so you buy the newest phone every 3 - 6 months.

 

 

 

Still does not have 3rd party notifications on the AOD however.

Just heard from a mate who had a guest from germany that over the flights - they are announcing not only Note 7 thats not allowed but S7 Edge as well.

 

Not quite sure why they are dragging S7 edge along with Note 7

They might have the wrong info, however if the s7 edge gets banned it's going back to spark for a refund.

I also think there's been an error somewhere, as there have been no such bans that I can find. I'll also be taking mine back as 'not fit for purpose' if I can't travel with it!





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I tried arguing for a while that S7 Edge has been around for a while now without any issues - but then he was saying that he's just the messenger - passing on the information he heard

 

But I also searched news for any mention of the S7 Edge ban on flights but only came up with Note 7 articles and none that mentioned S7 Edge

 

I am not going to travel anytime soon but it would be an absolute bummer if that happened

I was teetering on the Edge (sorry!) but for this reason alone I think I will avoid Samsung until a clearly differentiated (and, hopefully, very well tested!) Note 8 appears.

 

It's the same paranoia we see everywhere in modern society these days and any phone with Samsung on it is going to be viewed with suspicion for a while, especially when seen in use on planes.

I heard several announcements in Sydney International when they first banned Note 7s and they couldn't get it straight between Notes, Galaxy or even just all Samsung phones. I can imagine a giant game of Chinese whispers where they have no idea that they are different phones because they don't have one themselves.

Has there been any word on when to expect Nougat, and with it Grace UX?

Some tests have shown up online but nothing out yet.

 

I just hope they don't hold it back till the s8 to try and get people to buy that to get Nougat
