Just a little clarification before we begin: in the tutorial I will be using a P9 Lite equipped with Android 6.0 and EMUI 4.1.1, so the menu items I will indicate may differ slightly from those present on the device.

In any case, even if you use a different version of Android / EMUI and have another phone model, don't worry: you shouldn't have any major difficulties completing the operations described.

Alternative keyboards

If you are not satisfied with the customization settings available in the Huawei keyboard, you can resort to some third party keyboards.

But be careful: only download keyboards from trusted developers who have positive reviews about privacy.

Android keyboards, in fact, if properly programmed by scam developers, can be used to capture everything that is typed on them, including passwords, bank details, etc.

The use of third-party keyboards therefore always represents a potential privacy risk.

With that said, let me show you some reliable alternative keyboards that you can download from Play Store and that allow you to adjust their size with ease, all for free of course.

SwiftKey keyboard

SwiftKey keyboard It is one of the most used keyboards for Android in history, one of the first to introduce scrolling writing (the one that allows you to compose words without removing your finger from the screen).

It offers a high degree of customization and, as a result, can also be resized with some ease.

To get it, open the Play store (the colored ▶ ︎ symbol on the home screen), find «SwiftKey keyboard» inside and first hit the app icon in the search results and the button Install on pc.

When the download is complete, start the SwiftKey keyboard pressing the button Open de Play Store or by selecting its icon on the home screen, press thebutton. Enable SwiftKey and activate the keyboard by moving its lever up in ON (on the screen that opens) and then confirming.

Once done, click on the button Select SwiftKey, place the check mark next to SwiftKey keyboard, to set the keyboard as the default and press Improve forecasts, to choose whether and how to improve autocomplete suggestions: You can link your accounts Google o Microsoft or skip the procedure by pressing thebutton. Not now.

Now, to adjust the size of the keyboard, all you have to do is launch the keyboard app. SwiftKey keyboard, click the icons Typing and   Resize and change the size of the on-screen keyboard with the indicators.

When finished, press the button Okay (bottom right) to save the configuration.

On the menu keys, you can adjust other keyboard settings, such as whether the row of numbers, arrow keys.

Gboard

Gboard It's Google's official keyboard, and it has many cool features, including the ability to search "on the fly," type with a swipe, and adjust its size.

To get it (if it is not installed on your mobile phone yet), you must use the Play Store, as already explained in the previous chapter dedicated to the SwiftKey keyboard.

Once done, set the Google keyboard as the default keyboard on your Android terminal, by going to the menu Settings> Advanced settings> Language & input> Default keyboard and selecting Gboard of the table that is proposed to you.

Then select Gboard on the menu Language and input > preferences.

At this point, you just have to open Keyboard height and use the adjustment bar that appears on the screen to configure the option Alto (just move the pointer to the far right).

To save the settings, click Okay.

As you can see, compared to the default keyboard size, Gboard's "tall" setting does not lead to major improvements in terms of readability of typing characters.

In any case, it's always better than nothing (and so the keyboard is perfectly readable even in its default form, it must be said).
