However the xperia is a bit easier to press the right button most likely to the wider gap between the buttons.
Xperia keyboard is good but i once you use swyping and predictive text, you cant compare. Espeically with predictive text, you hardly have to ever type out a full word, often just a few letters and then it predicts your next word. The predictive text engine on Swift is much smarter than Xperia in how it adapts to your writing style. Its just that Swift is slow regarding swyping compared to Swype or Touchpal but its getting better.
Theres other little things like if you swype a word with Xperia theres no gesture to easily delete the whole word vs characters at a time which Touchpal, Swype, Swift etc all handle.
Xperia did just update in the play store though to increase the spacebar length that many complained about
There is another KK keyboard in the play store, very close to stock but with options like a number row on top and it works reasonbly well too
