How to Turn Off Auto Correct on the Galaxy Note 7

How to Turn Off Auto Correct on the Galaxy Note 7 is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

This quick guide will show users how to turn off auto correct on the Galaxy Note 7. It’s a feature that most either love or hate, and can be extremely helpful, but often times predictive text does more harm than good. It was made famous by the iPhone, but now it’s on all devices and here we’ll explain how to turn it off on the Note 7.

As most probably know, auto correct scans and fixes typing mistakes or predicts the next word while a user is typing. It can even match and correct words saved in the device dictionary, suggest contact names and more. However, it can also add more mistakes into a text or email for those in a hurry.

We’ve already detailed tons of helpful tips and tricks for the Note 7 above, and below is one more we’ve been asked recently. So, for those who are experiencing problems or getting frustrated by auto correct, lets turn it off and take back control of the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung’s new Note is extremely popular and selling out around the globe thanks to improved features, water resistance, a microSD slot, iris scanner and more. As a result millions of people have one, and we’ve been asked about turning this off multiple times. A few steps in settings is all it takes to get rid of this frustrating feature and type what we want, when we want.

Whether you’ve been using Galaxy phones for years or just got one, the simple instructions below will help you out. The same steps apply to almost any Galaxy smartphone or tablet, the settings menu just might look slightly different due to recent user interface changes. Here’s how to turn off auto correct (predictive text) on the Galaxy Note 7.

Instructions

There are a few different ways to get to the keyboard settings menu, which is where we need to navigate to in order to disable auto correct.

First off, while using the keyboard press and hold the microphone button, which brings a pop-up window with more options. One is a gear-shaped settings button. This takes you directly into the keyboard settings. Then, just turn off “Predictive text”. See our screenshots below.

Here’s a breakdown of each step and setting you’ll need to select to turn off auto correct or predictive text on Samsung devices using the regular settings menu too.

  1. Head to the Settings menu (slide down notification bar and tap the gear-shaped settings button)
  2. Navigate to “General Management”
  3. Tap “Language & input”
  4. Click on “Samsung keyboard” or the keyboard being used
  5. Simply switch off “Predictive Text”

Alternatively, if you select the predictive text option instead of swiping to turn it off, there are more settings and controls inside. Owners can keep predictive text off, but disable the “Auto replace” feature so it doesn’t swap out words for you. Instead you’ll still get suggestions and be able to choose it if you’d like, and have more control over what’s happening.

Note-7-keyboard

While you’re in the settings menu for the keyboard feel free to customize anything and everything. Samsung has options for Auto spell check, auto capitalize, double tap space-bar for instant punctuation and even options to change the keyboard layout or switch it to one side of the screen. This makes it easier for those with smaller hands trying to type on this huge 5.7-inch screen.

That’s it and we’re all done. Now simply hit the home button and go back to sending texts, writing emails or typing away without any interruptions or auto-correction mistakes appearing. If for any reason you decide you want it back, follow the same steps as above and re-enable the feature.

Samsung Official Note 7 Screen Protector

First up is Samsung's official Galaxy Note 7 screen protector. They haven't offered one for past Note devices, and maybe that's because the info we now know about Gorilla Glass 5. Right on the Samsung Accessories website they have one listed. The description doesn't mention if this is a glass screen protector, or a film like most others, so choose wisely. That said, it mentions preserving the glass and keeping it safe from damage, improving image quality in sunlight and reducing glare. Typically Samsung's official accessories are all great quality, and we'll update one we know more.
