Disable Auto-replace


You can either disable the AutoCorrect or you can simply go for Auto-replace feature. In our opinion, disabling the Auto-replace feature is more useful as you will get rid of automatically replacing your word and you will still get the corrections and recommendations. Choosing the second option will allow the S8 to learn more about your typing habits and it will make the recommendations & corrections more accurate.
