    I do not understand why the physical keyboard autocorrect is not as good as the virtual autocorrect on BlackBerry 10 keyboards.

    Why is there such a difference? On the virtual keyboard, I can miss the first letter of a word, and still get a correct word through auto correct.

    It would be awesome to have the physical keyboard and have the auto correct as powerful as the one on the virtual keyboard.

    Because it doesn't have to be? I know several physical kb users actually turn off any auto correct.

    I came from the Z30 to the Passport and haven't had any issues whatsoever,.. I find typing much more accurate and less needing of autocorrect.

    While accuracy certainly goes up on the physical keyboard it still doesn't do anything for my lousy spelling. Like OP, I relied upon that space bar to correct spelling errors on my Z10. It would be nice if the hardware keyboard could help out just a smidge more.

    Yes, I agree that the auto correct isn't as commonly used on physical keyboard, but if you can make it as good as on a virtual keyboard, then why not?

    I like to type without looking down at the keyboard or the screen on my Q10, so autocorrect would definitely help.

    On my Z10 the auto-correct was overtly intrusive at times, on my Passport it is often non-existent. I'm personally thinking there needs to be a happy medium. The Z10 changed words that were correct at times, and the Passport ignores very obvious typos and spelling mistakes.

    At the very least it should be a little more aggressive for misspelled words. I mean, common, if it can underline it red it can probably figure out how to auto-correct it. I know the Z10 could...

    I'd want the autocorrect just for the ability to only type a few letters (sometimes none) then swipe... much faster than having to fully type every word.

    So... basically the Passport.

    NO... I want to type one handed also.

    I think many would have loved to see the Passport Keyboard on a smaller form factor. Like a Classic+

    I suppose. Although I have never been able to use the cramped physical kb prior to the Passport. Maybe my fingers are not as finely shaped as necessary.

    I had the Z30 too, and I too find the auto-correct on the Passport to be less helpful.
