    Have y'all noticed some glitches with the keyboard when typing input?

    Here are some things that I have experienced which I find annoying (but not deal-breaking):

    FYI I use Google Hangouts as my default texting app

    1. When typing a message, often the first character I type does not default to a capital letter. For some reason, if I use the backspace key prior to typing, it will correctly auto-capitalize that first letter. Also, if I backspace to correct the non-cap letter, it will once again correctly default to a capital letter.

    2. Auto-Correct options do not automatically appear when I am using the physical keyboard. In fact, I would say it is unusual for the autocorrect options to appear at all.

    3. The press-and-hold to type a capital letter often does not work. It will just keep repeating the letter (kkkkkkkkk) instead of changing the letter to a capital.

    4. It is hit-or-miss with the "alt" key status showing up on the tray. Sometimes it will show if I have locked the "alt" (in order to input a bunch of numbers or symbols) and sometimes it won't.

    These all appear to be software bugs and hopefully will be corrected in a patch. However, I have yet to see a post from anyone documenting these annoyances. Has anyone else noticed these issues?

    To OP regarding item #2, I don't have a Priv but played with two of them in AT&T stores. When going through the settings I noticed the auto-correct strength defaulted lower for the pkb. You'll probably have to bump that up a level or two to see much auto-correct action.
