I used a lot of keyboards but all of them are very slow (not typing, just popup time). Is there a way to minimize that time or I should to buy phone with hardware keyboard? :-]

  • What phone are you using?

  • Also, what do you mean by popup (time)? Is it the little boxes which popups when you press a letter (and the box shows the letter that was pressed)? Or are you saying that you type fast but the letters don't show up as fast in the textbox / textarea (not talking about the popup I mentioned earlier)?

    @geffchang I think he means the open and close animation of the keyboard itself when a text field is activated. Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 7:19
  • As @onik said popup time is time between user press text field and keyboard appear on screen. I used a lot of phones, such as Sony Xperia X8 / Samsung Galaxy SII / Cubot GT72 Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 10:56
  • Have you tried enabling Developer options (in Settings, click About Device several times), and disabling stuffs like: (1) Window animation scale, (2) Transition animation scale, (3) Animator duration scale. I'm not sure if it'll help, but it's worth a try.

As @geffchang said, disabling animations in Developer options is right way
