I’m practicing typing some Japanese on my smartphone and it’s going pretty great so far. Nothing major, just trying out a lot of stuff.
When it comes to my smartphone, I found (and use) two different kinds of keyboards:
Rōmaji to Japanese: This is the comfortable one for me. It’s way faster and kind of more handy, too. It works just like the QWERTZ/QWERTY keyboard on your (western) computer.
The Japanese panel one: It’s kind of annoying typing with that and, relatively speaking, takes for ever.
So, naturally, I asked myself which one do native Japanese people use for maximal efficiency in their (busy) day-to-day lives. This would be the one I’d stick to, probably.
Basically what I’m asking is - which is, in your opinion, the best keyboard to type on with your smartphone?
Thanks for any replies and I’m sorry if that is the wrong category, just tell me.
