Auto-correction is boon and bane for Android device owners. A boon if you are typing in English and a bane if you are using your regional language using the Roman alphabet. While you are typing a message in English, the auto-correction or predictive text gives you suggestions and you can tap on those predictive texts. This will save your thumb strength; moreover, auto correction also removes spelling mistake as it also suggests correct spellings.
On the other hand, auto-correction can be a headache if you are typing messages in your native language using the Roman alphabet. If you lose concentration and just tap on space bar of the keyboard, you may insert another word and not the one you intended to type. To avoid such gaffe, you should better turn off auto-correction or predictive text option on your Android devices.
