Automatic word replacement is a feature that is designed to fix typos on Android. In Samsung Keyboard app on Galaxy devices it is called auto replace. It can be rather handy in many cases if you use the official language. But as soon as you start using slang chatting with your friends, you will likely face some frustrating moments.

The program will simply think that you made a typo while you wrote that way intentionally.
In this tutorial I will show how to disable auto replace on Samsung Galaxy S20, S10, S9, Note 9, Note 8 running One UI on Android 9 Pie.
