Predictive Text/Autocorrect Bug - Samsung Galaxy S20

A lot of the time when I'm typing, my autocorrect has started replacing words with the previous word instead of something that would make sense. For example, if I typed "other wsy" by accident, my predictive text replaces "wsy" with "other" so now it says "other other" instead of "other way." Is this happening to anyone else and is there a solution?

This is happening to me too and it's so frustrating. Sometimes if I misspell the 3rd word in a sentence, but the second one is perfectly correct, it just replaces the whole lot with two of the same word.

Mine does this too! it will also start a new word in the middle of the word I'm typing. Like I will get through one or 2 letters and while I'm typing, it continues to type what I put but only groups part of the word and the "Happy" turns into "Happly" or "Hi" turns into "HI" because it auto corrects the lowercase I because it thinks it's independent.. it is literally driving me insane.

Hey all, 

Have you tried to clear the Keyboard cache and data to see if this helps? If not, please head into Settings > Apps > Samsung Keyboard > Storage > Clear cache, then tap on Clear data. Once you've done this, restart your phone.

My phone out of the box had this problem.

It is a problem is up stream, not down stream.

replace it with google keyboard, this issue happened out of the box for me and since realising samsung doesn't care to fix it I'm replacing it.

I'm having this same problem, but on my S10+. It's really frustrating as sometimes I don't notice it and end up writing something that sounds nonsensical!
