Samsung Galaxy S6 How to use spell checker – Tips

Who writes much with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and sent emails to friends, acquaintances and clients has produced surely one or two spelling errors. This is not surprising, since the keyboard is sometimes a bit "hairy" to operate. Therefore on the Samsung Galaxy S6 an automatic spell checker is now available. If the spell checker is activated, wrong words will be automatically underlined red. If you tap a highlighted word on red, then the spell checking proposes words that could have meant.

Automatic spell checking is new to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and a very useful feature. If you want to take advantage of this, then we'll show you now how to activate the spell checker:
Open on the Samsung Galaxy S6 the main menu and then the Android system settings. Tap here now on "Language & input". So you see the entry "Samsung keyboard". Tap on this entry and you can then change settings for the keyboard. Now choose "Auto Check Spelling" and then activate this option by the regulator.
If you now write words wrong, then these misspellings are underlined in red and corrections are suggested.

We hope that this useful function will help you in everyday life, if you write text with your Samsung Galaxy S6. But please do not trust 100% on the spelling correction. Not all misspelled words are detected reliably.

You have now learned where you can activate on the Samsung Galaxy S6 the automatic spell checker.
