How To Turn ON And OFF Autocorrect On Galaxy S7

The Autocorrect on the Samsung Galaxy S7 is a great feature to know how to use. Autocorrect was created with the goal of helping you fix typos or other spelling errors that you make when typing on your smartphone. After all, it’s a common issue when you’re typing on a touch screen keyboard with keys only a third of the size of your fingertips. But Autocorrect can sometimes be an issue, when it autocorrects something that is not actually wrong or when it seems determined to tell you what you actually mean. This issue continues with the Galaxy S7, as autocorrect can be a headache sometimes.

For those who don’t want to use Autocorrect, there is a way to disable Autocorrect on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone. You can either disable Autocorrect forever or just when typing words that Autocorrect may not recognize. The following is a guide on how to turn Autocorrect on and off on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

  1. Turn on the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge.
