Section 4: Entering Text
This section describes how to select the desired text input
method when entering characters into your device. This

Your device comes equipped with an orientation detector that
can tell if the phone is being held in an upright (Portrait) or
sideways (Landscape) orientation. This is useful when
entering text.
Your device also provides several on-screen keypad text
entry options to make the task of text entry that much easier.
Text Input Methods
There are three text input methods available:
• Google voice typing: provides a voice to text interface.
• Samsung keyboard (default): an on-screen QWERTY
keyboard that can be used in both portrait and landscape
• Swype: is enabled so as you can enter text as you swipe
across the on-screen keyboard. Instead of tapping each
key, use your finger to trace over each letter of a word.
The on-screen QWERTY keypad works the same in both
portrait and landscape mode.
