    And still the highlight color for the suggestions stays orange. Do they ever listen?!

  • Fadi Obaya

    Depends on what theme you’re using. dumbass..

  • Ashroft

    is there any default setting to start the first word with small letters?

  • Raj Singh

    I prefer the dark theme on my Z Ultra and Z3 Tablet…
    Like I said earlier, Sony developers are doing a great job. The executive and marketing departments suck… bigtime.

  • Raj Singh

    Yes.

  • Vitor Silva

    The double tap on shift key was always possible since i remember using my xperia T and xperia Z2

  • Aditya Thakur

    Thank You

    I make the themes you idiot. If the dark accent colour is too dark it switches to orange! This because the geniuses use the dark colour with black text. Think before talking out of your arse.

  • Holy wow, finally!

  • Fardiyan Amar Moro

    Jecht_Sin can you give me color number so I can try it which one turns to orange? I have some themes, but the color on suggestion always changed (or may be the colors that I choose are bright colors).

  • Sadman Khan

    I know right? Been using it for years

  • Sadman Khan

    If you guys want a keyboard theme like this, try this theme out: (credits to the maker)

  • Jecht_Sin

    Material Design Green 800 turns to orange for example. It went back to green brighting it up to Green 600, but made the theme uglier.

    I complain to snow dev that we on international keyboard not have emoji . They listen when I get contact with them in concept software directly and after 2 year with technical support . 1.5 months after it came . But sony’s use Google emoji so ugly :-P Samsung and HTC has own theme . But still happy with this awesome keyboard ;-) thank u Sony for be a great manufacturer to shame that people buys other phones .

  • Fadi Obaya

    Where’s your grammar? Fucktard!

  • Jecht_Sin

    My grammar? It’s stuck into your butt. Together with your idiocy. Are you one of those morons believing it’s a dev choice to make the highlight colour in the keyboard orange? Well, think again. If your two synapses left can sustain the strain.

  • Azir

    Is there a way for this app to be ported to Xperia T?

  • Fadi Obaya

    Shut up with your failing grammar before I fuck your mom and your sister.

  • Kliment Stamenkov

    Does anyone know what theme is used in the screenshots above? Thanks!

    There are not that many changes, they just re-listed the changes from the previous update too.

  • jmaxim917

    Exactly. I was like what the hell are they talking about.

  • Fardiyan Amar Moro

    Yeap I did try and I still can’t figure out why, I did discussed with another theme designer in Xperia Themes (Facebook Group) some of them said the range depth color also different to each color. Personally, I always design my theme’s Accent Color lighter than the Primary Color. That’s way I always get the color on suggestion Word on Keyboard matched.

    Hey, I just found the info on Polish site that Z6 may come with 5GB of RAM, 1080p screen, snap 820 and advanced camera:

    http://m.benchmark.pl/aktualnosci/xperia-z6-moze-oferowac-5-gb-pamieci-ram.html

    What do you think about it?
    I hope they will keep fingerprint sensor, matt back and this green color.
    Wish advanced camera means OIS, curved lens and bigger pixels vs megapixels ;)

  • azzido

    I personally think the decision about 1080p screen is great due to I care about battery life and see almost no difference with higher ppi on such a small screen. I rather care about brightness, black, contrast and colors.

    Still hoping they will move standard size to min 5.5.
    I also like the fact Z5 in standard version is covered like entire back with 1 piece of glass, while Premium is not and this pseudo chrome is sticking out there :/

  • azzido

    If they bring super camera with OIS and S-Master aplifier with mega bass then I will have a reason to change my Z5 :)

  • Raj Singh

    Fuck you.

  • Trollman

    shut up little bitch

  • Benjamin Levy

    To work around this, sometimes I’ll write the first letter twice, and then go back and delete the initial capital letter.

  • That defeats the whole purpose of writing in small caps with this keyboard. Google Keyboard has its own issues, but at least it allows for that.

  • Great Dude

    I think it is that is already installed in your phone under the name “classic”.

  • Fardiyan Amar Moro

    It’s a very good counter attack reply comment I’ve seen today. LOL. #thumbs_up

  • Khillo81

    Oh, good I’m not the only one. I thought I was losing my mind…
