How do I prevent Google from auto-correcting my search terms?

If I type “godwar” that’s what I’m looking for, not “God of War”. This is really starting to annoy me as I now have to go through the extra steps of quoting and punctuating my searches, which is not the most comfortable procedure on a smartphone.

I get that many users are a bit slack in the cognitive department, but punishing everyone else like this is taking a page from Microsoft: “Let’s hide the fine tuning options in an obscure dark recess behind an arcane sigil so the little corporate secretary darlings don’t get a coronary.”

So, how do I stop Google interpreting and auto-correcting my search results?
