Turn On/Off Number Row

If desired, another row or line with the numeric keys 0-9 can be displayed at the upper edge of the keyboard on the realme smartphone.

This enlarges the used area of the keyboard, which also ensures faster text composing since no switching to number keypad is necessary.

Turn On/Off One-handed Mode for Keyboard

Depending on the size of the realme smartphone, it can be difficult to enter messages or texts when using the device with only one hand, since the thumb might not be able to reach all the keys at the other end.

To make it easier to use with only one hand, we can pin the keyboard to the left or right side of the screen, which requires a smaller reach.
