The usual keypad on your Android phone might not be the most appropriate form of input you desire. Perhaps a quick change on the way you type can help you type faster and more efficiently. If you are tired of tapping your keyboard you might try swiping across the screen to type your words.

A keyboard which makes near guesses about what's the next word in the scentence might also be one of your choice. One may also be bored of the form factor of the keyboard and wants a change from those blocky keys.
