Autocorrect

The autocorrection of the Huawei device makes it extremely easy to type. The corrected word is displayed in the middle of the suggestion bar. Despite all of this, it can happen that the Huawei smartphone does not insert the desired word and thus, albeit rarely, funny content is created. You can decide for yourself whether the auto correction should be (de-) activated.
