    I've owned both the 5 and 4S, and to me it seems it's more difficult to type quickly on the 5 than it's predecessor.. anyone else feel this way? Whenever I type it feels like it's a bit slower than it should be with the device recognizing my input and touch on the screen.

    As strange as it sounds, it seems that I tend to mistype quite often on the 5.

    It makes no difference to me. I type just as fast on my iPhone 5 as I did on my iPhone 4S.

    I think i could on my 4S faster, but i think this may be more of an iOS glitch because it brings up words I never want many many times before i get the word I want, I've NEVER shut off autocorrect and I'm getting close to doing it lol

    I was definitely faster on my 4 for some reason. I think I'm getting used to the 5 though.

    Oh man, I've been meaning to post about this, I definitely used to type better with the 4S, I'm a portrait typer and I know is the same keyboard size but it feels kind of laggy and I tend now to make more mistakes...

    The same for me in portrait mode but I've always preferred typing in landscape mode and I'm faster on i5 while typing in landscape.

    I've mentioned to some of my friends, I am making are far more mistakes trying to type on this phone then I did in any of the previous. But I can't figure out why. I don't feel like I'm holding the phone any different. The keyboard itself doesn't appear to have changed at all. Regardless, trying to whip out a fast text I'm here compared to the previous versions is not the same experience for me.

    I have not owned the 5 long enough to actually make a comparison. I have noticed a few times, I have been typed a letter and it did not enter, this never happened on the 4's. Other than that I have yet noticed any real difference.

    I actually think I type faster on the 5. For some reason I feel there is more space between the letters which makes it easier. Who knows.

    I could definitely type faster on the 4s. IMO, the digitizer on the 5 is less accurate than on the 4s and is the cause for typos and missed or incorrect characters.

    there are some apps which are still not updated for the iPhone 5 screen (Good app - come on man) and I type a lot of emails using the same. The problem is the location of the keyboard which messes me up. I don't think it is a hardware issue it is more of how we are used to holding the phone and the location of the keyboard on all the previous generations of the iPhone.

    I've found it to be the same experience; I still get screwed by autocorrect,

    Seems like the multitouch on the keyboard isn't as reactive as it was on the 4/4S.

    Minimal typing issues, but i can tell a slight difference...all in all it's about the same.

    This is the problem I have as well. My touch targets are off when the app has not been updated for the longer screen. Updates apps I don't notice a difference in typing speed.

    consider myself a very fast typer but the 4S was definitely better for me, I dont use autocorrect since about 70% of my typing is in Spanish.. Hopefuly is a software issue and it'll get better with updates.

    my only issue is the apps that aren't optimized for the 4" screen...i missed the space button a lot and my words run together because i hit the blank space below the actually spacebar.
