If you have a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus, texting is probably one of the most common things you do on it. Whether it’s messaging, writing emails or posting comments on social networks, smartphones are nowadays more about written words and less about spoken words. This is one of the reasons why Samsung is systematically taking care of its users’ typing experiences.
The Spell Check feature, for instance, was designed to help with writing texts easier and faster, without worrying that much about spelling and grammar. It tracks down and underlines in red any misspelled word. And if you tap that word, you’ll get suggestions of what it could have meant or how you should have written it correctly.
