    Hi
    I'm struggling with Copy & Paste on my shinny new Android smartphone.
    iOS for 10 years (approx 8yrs with copy & paste) I'm having difficulty, any tips/ 3rd party apps?
    Cheers

    I think I've worked out the issue. I tried to delete this thread and it wouldn''t.
    When I realigned my temped glass screen protector the 6th time! it cracked slightly. I've realised this is the area which causes issues with Copy and Paste.
    I've ordered a new screen protector.
    Will post views on my 1st Android smartphone soon.... Loving it.
    Thanks

    I know you solved the issue now but anyway: Swype keyboard provides the best copy/paste functionality I've ever used on a touch screen device. You swipe from a symbol next to the space bar to c, v or x, and presto! Super intuitive as it uses the keys we're used to from computers and it becomes very fast when you're used to it.

    I'll second Swype. I think it was the first swiping keyboard on Android and is still the one I use to this day.

    On my LG keyboard, you can move the keyboard cursor by sliding along the spacebar. If that's something I'd have to tradeoff, then I'll consider that then.
