    I just found this on 1925 leak:

    When you press and hold the circle (which you can move left,right,up,down one-by-one) where you normally would tap it,

    You can move it with your finger by dragging it.
    While you drag, the cursor moves in the text and so you can place it directly next to the character you want to correct.

    It's quite the same as it is on windows phone,
    Just with this circle added.

    It saves me lots of nerves.

    Actually, I think the dragging action was the original implementation when it first came out (since it mirrors iOS and other known touch screen cursor-placement UIs), and the circumference tapping (to move left, right, up, down one space at a time) was a later development/improvement. Now they added the 'running-shift' to select text by simply holding down a shift key and dragging the cursor bubble... obviously works best in physical keyboard devices.

    I'll teach you something more amazing, when you press once and the circle appears, hold SHIFT and press somewhere else, let's say at the end of the word. That allows you to highlight the full word, or a full sentence, or a full paragraph!! )

    And it even works on Z10 with the virtual keyboard!

    Maybe I have in recently figured it out, or something changed, but the function seems different from before. After tapping the screen, hold the bottom of the circle, it becomes darker and then you move it.. don't remember if it got dark before and the movement seems more deliberate /precise then before....
    Also remember that continuing to hold on a word highlights first the word,then the line, next the paragraph, and finally the full page.
