I just installed a lolipop Cyanogenmod variant and it's got the AOSP keyboard. I'm used to keyboards from HTC and Samsung and I have preferred them for various reasons.

I don't really like the AOSP keyboard and would like something like the Samsung keyboard. I am looking for these features:

  • Haptic feedback
  • Discrete numbers above the keyboard
  • English QWERTY

I do not like, and do not use, these features, and will turn them off if present :

  • Sywpe
  • Predictive text
  • Autocorrect
  • Spellcheck

I don't use emojis/smoticons that much, and I don't get why there are a million keyboards just for that. As far as I can tell, keyboards come with an emoji/emoticon pane anyways.

I tried Multiling O Keyboard + emoji based on this similar but different question and it was lacking haptic feedback. I couldn't figure out it's themes and options either. I don't think it came with near as many options as the screenshots would suggest.

I like 'Hacker's Keyboard' Play store, github.

QWERTY Number row Vibration on keypress is configurable - you can even set vibrate duration.

You can even play with things like key height in the settings.
