Autocomplete and spelling correction?

Thanks for bearing with an absolute beginner.
On my iPhone I got to like the corrections when I made obvious typos. When typing messages on my FP2, it does some underlining but no autocomplete or correction of misspellings.

What am I overlooking? Is there a manual somewhere that describes working with text on the phone? (selecting, copying and pasting so far is also a bit of a hassle, for example)

Go to:

Settings > Language & Input > Android Keyboard (or whatever Keyboard you use) > Text correction

There you can change a lot about suggestions and correction behavior.

I’m not at all impressed though. I used ‘aggressive autocorrection’ and even the simplest typos (e.g. “typis”) get through without correction at all. Also the suggestions below the text don’t make sense to me (when typing “typi” I get: “lt”, “To” and “lt to” to choose from…)

I am sure I’m overlooking something obvious… But what?

I have the same experience.
It makes me wonder if one needs to install a dictionary.

I installed another keyboard app, because I also didn’t consider the spelling correction to be very good.

The spelling correction in German is pretty bad too. There is at least one bad autocorrection in almosh every longer message that I write

Have you tried installing the Google Keyboard from the Play Store?

I could not get spell corrections to work with norwegian language om stock keyboard, but installed google keyboard which looks exactly the same and supported all languages. FP team notified.

I did try but then, funny enough, my Fairphone warned me that Google saves every word you type! So that’s a huge no go for me!
