1.11 Entering text on Galaxy S23

Introduction: You need to use the keyboard to enter text when using Galaxy S23. The default Samsung Keyboard with multi-language support is a decent one and insufficient for most Galaxy S23 owners. There are a few useful features, for example, Writing Assistant (Grammarly integration) and extracting text from any images/camera. You should try them if you are not aware of these cool features.

Update: in the One UI 6.1 update for Galaxy S23, Writing Assist, which is a generative AI (Galaxy AI) feature, was added to the Samsung keyboard. Wiriting Assistant (integration with Grammarly) was moved to Samsung Keyboard settings.
