Samsung Galaxy S20 disable auto-correction for keyboard - Manual

On your Samsung Galaxy S20 you have installed the Samsung keyboard, which provides you with useful functions ex works, such as intelligent typing. Intelligent typing includes a dictionary and therefore you can also use the "auto-correction" feature.


The auto-correction is active ex works and automatically changes misspelled words. This is where the problem comes into play.

Because there are words that you may have deliberately chosen because, for example, they are colloquial. The auto-correction automatically adjusts these words so that they are "correct".
