One of the great things about Android is you have a ton of different keyboards to choose from. While you might know how to swap the default keyboard out for something new, what you might not realise is that your Samsung Galaxy phone also comes with a way to make that default keyboard a little easier to use as well.
GadgetHacks highlighted a somewhat hidden keyboard setting on Samsung phones this week that allows you to change the contrast of your phone’s keyboard, a move that can make it easier to see and in turn easier to type on.
To get to it, open an app where the keyboard appears and then select the gear icon at the top of the keyboard. That will take you to the “Samsung Keyboard” menu. You can also get there by going to the Settings menu on your phone and selecting “General Management,” followed by “Language & Input,” “On-screen keyboard,” and then “Samsung Keyboard.”
Once you find the right menu you’ll want to select “Keyboard layout and feedback” from the menu and then toggle “High contrast keyboard” on. When you do, you can tap the “High contrast keyboard” setting to bring up four colour options for the keyboard.
I’m personally a fan of the black backdrop with white lettering, but you have four high-contrast options there to choose from. I find all of them exceptionally easier to type on than the standard default option.
If you have trouble with the default keyboard, or even if you just want to change things up a bit on your phone, it’s definitely worth a look.
