Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Turn Off Auto Correct in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

For some users, enable the auto correct feature may be able to help them to type better because when they're entering text the device will give them some suggestion words to let them correcting or completing the word manually, even the user can set the device to complete or replace a word automatically with the most probable word when the space bar or a punctuation mark is touched. Unfortunately, for some others this feature is annoying since they don't want their words to be corrected or replaced by the device. Therefore if you also don't want to use this feature, then you can easily turn off auto correct feature so that you can type any word you want without having to worry your word will be corrected or replaced.


How to disable the auto correct feature?
You can do so by using one of the two following methods:


Method #1: From the settings menu
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap to go to the settings menu.
  2. Tap My device tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Language and input and then tap it.
  4. Tap next to Samsung keyboard to open up the Samsung keyboard settings.
  5. If you want to keep the device shows suggestion words but don't like the device replaces your word automatically, then you just need to turn off Auto replacement by sliding the ON/OFF switch next to this option to the left.
  6. If you want the device no longer displays the suggestion words, then you have to turn off Predictive text by sliding the ON/OFF switch next to this option to the left. FYI, it'll automatically disable Auto replacement too.


Method #2: While typing
You can quickly reach the Samsung keyboard settings from any app or screen where you can enter text. As the example, you can see the following steps to know how to turn off auto correct while composing a new text message in the Messaging app:
  1. Open Messaging app.
  2. Tap to compose a new text message.
  3. Tap the Enter message field to display the keyboard.
  4. Long tap the key in the left side of the space bar and then tap to go to the Samsung keyboard settings.
  5. If you want to keep the device shows suggestion words but don't like the device replaces your word automatically, then you just need to turn off Auto replacement by sliding the ON/OFF switch next to this option to the left.
  6. If you want the device no longer displays the suggestion words, then you have to turn off Predictive text by sliding the ON/OFF switch next to this option to the left. FYI, it'll automatically disable Auto replacement too.

For the record, most of insiders who have sent their emails to me said that they would rather enabled the predictive text option without the auto replacement option because in some cases auto replacement often replaces the word with the wrong or unwanted word. So, how about you? Do you disable auto replacement only or with the predictive text as well?
