Sense? I'm all for it. I hate stock android. But that's just my opinion.

The jelly bean keyboard is advanced with decent auto correction. Swift key is the best keyboard in its own right.

I use Swype Beta now.

I used to use Swift but Swift key press animations lags when you type really fast. Also SwiftKey lacks Swype function.

I think that if I were to tap letter by letter I would go for the 4+ Sense kb.
For prediction I would go for SwiftKey.
For pure Swype I would use Swype.
But I've been using the 4.2 kb for the best of all worlds decent at all of these. And most of all the reason I don't always use Swype is easy access to google voice typing. I hate the dragon voice recognition.

I'm not a big fan of the Sense keyboard myself. I use A.I. Type because I like the word prediction and having a row of number keys at the top of the keyboard for easy access.
