What is the best soft keyboard for Android phones?

I like to have keyboards that type quickly and with relative accuracy. I wondered what is the best kind of keyboard that suits my personalized criteria: quick typing and accuracy? I really don’t care that much about the cost, however, I would obviously prefer a free one as opposed to one that is paid.

    Swiftkey is by far the best IMHO. It asks you what kind of typist you are, slow and careful or quick and speedy. As you use the keyboard it learns your typing style as you go so it's word correction will get better with time. I've been using it for around a year now and I would be lost without it.

    It's not a free app but it does have a free trial that you can use on the market. It also has themes that you can get to change the look of the keyboard colours.

    Oh, it also supports swiping if you prefer to type in that way. I'd highly recommend you give Swiftkey a try.

    It all depends on your preference and how you use it. Swype, Slide-It, and other keyboards offer the sliding-finger action to type, which for many people is quicker and easier to type at around 30 words per minute or more, or there are regular soft keyboards that can help with better accuracy and better word suggestions. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/makeuseof-tests-what-is-the-best-android-keyboard/ and http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-choose-the-best-android-keyboard-for-your-own-needs/
