How to turn off auto-correct in Android [Tip]

Most Android devices have a built-in auto-correct feature. With auto-correct, your texts and instant messages will be automatically corrected as you type. The thing is there’s also a high chance that you could be sending the wrong messages to your recipients.

Why so? Well, let’s just say that you wanted to type “hands” but because of auto-correct, you ended up typing “handle”. It’s such an annoyance especially when you’re in a real-time conversation with friends. So if you want to avoid these troublesome instances, it would be best to turn off the auto-correct feature in your Android smartphone or tablet.
