This has been annoying in Jolla since day 1.
When writing something the keyboard is too sensitive. Quite usually when tapping letters it first gets it correctly but when rmoving finger up it changes letter to next one.. or to the letter that the finger is only even slightly touching. I have size 11 hands its not practical to write with current aggressive setup.

There should be adjustable time period after pressing a letter that nothing else happens even when your finger slips. And it slips when writing anything in car or on the move generally. If you like to have it at zero delay..ok but should be also be able to have a bit more error tolerant way.

I've been having this "problem" too. I don't use phone so much but it's annoying. I had three mistypes when writing this comment. :)

Quite confusing typo, "sensibility". But I must agree, somewhat at least. I have kind of learnt to deal with the keyboard, but every now and then described things happen. It is not much of a problem to me with XA2, because the screen is larger, but Jolla1 is a whole different story.

#metoo Its why I gave up on Sailfish 2 on Xperia X. I was excited when 3 came out and rushed to buy an XA2 in the hope that the keyboard would be one of the things that was fixed; it does seem a little better, but that may be the phone. Now I'm getting bored and frustrated waiting for Android app support, lets hope both things get sorted soon so we can enjoy this beautiful OS

It was not sensibility when I posted. Language-police 'corrected' it.. Not exactly what I ment but life is..

I don't have much trouble with mus-types, but I wish we could have 'symbols on long-press' function...

@kkarioja: The typo was my fault, thanks for pointing it out. @Pekka: sorry, didn't want to 'police' but just to improve readability a bit. wasnt very successful given the mishap with word choice ;)
