Auto spell checker or auto correct is a very important feature while writing on android phones and it saves us from embarrassing typos in emails and texts. However, there are times when spell checkers can turn into a nightmare like when you are texting your friend and the spell checker auto-correcting your friend’s name every time you type it.  

Many people don’t know that there is a built-in spell checker available in addition to the autocorrect feature. That means you can turn on or off the spell checker whenever you want. Once you enable the spell check on your android phone it lets you check spellings and the best part is you can use this feature with or without the Autocorrect feature.

There is some significant difference between spell checker and autocorrect. The Autocorrect feature corrects all the incorrect words and automatically changes them into something that appears like a proper word. But the problem with autocorrect is; corrections made by the Autocorrect feature are not always right. The spell checker on the other hand does not automatically correct words; it only provides a list of suggested or possible words that you can choose from. So you can pick the right word or proper word by yourself.
