Spell check

The keyboard on the OnePlus smartphone not only includes an auto-correction but also a spell checker that can be turned on/off independently at any time.

Auto punctuate

The keypad on the OnePlus smartphone has a feature where double-tapping the spacebar on the keyboard inserts an automatic period and an additional space.

This function significantly increases typing speed, because after each sentence, you only need to tap the space twice to start another sentence.

The automatic capitalism on the OnePlus smartphone automatically recognizes punctuation marks and starts with a capital letter of the word that is being started after the beginning of the sentence.
