What Is Autocorrect?
With “Auto replacement” on the Galaxy S8, your smartphone changes a word or group of words to the word the device thinks you want to use when you press the Spacebar. However, if this happens and you don’t want the word to be auto-corrected again, you can tap the corrected word, then choose the word as you originally typed it.
