I've had a Xiaomi Mi 5 until recently, then I bought a Redmi Note 8 and I noticed the typing experience isn't the same. I mean, the screen is different and I didn't use MIUI on the Mi 5, but that's the only difference. I use the GBoard app with the exact same configurations as it were on the Mi 5.
The problem lies mostly when I type letters that are in the border of the screen, like "q", "p" or the button that change to the Symbols and Numbers. The typing feels a bit "laggy" and sometimes the q's and p's reverses the order like when I type "problem" it goes like "rpoblem", same with "queue" and it goes like "uqeue". When I type fast, the problem always occurs, when I type slowly it's more rare, but also occurs.
For the center of the screen, no other letters does this reversing thing, but I can feel that when I press the letters, there's a micro-delay between me pressing and the letter actually showing, something that I've never felt while using the Mi 5.
I'm tempted on rooting my phone and changing the OS, but I don't know if it'll solve the problem. Did anyone feel or notice something similar to my rpoblem?
(I've had to correct nearly all the words that came out reversed while writing this)
