Predictive text after update

Is there some way to go back to the five word predictive text that was relatively intelligent? as everyone knows now the new update only has three word incredibly stupid predictive text like a stock Android. stock Androids have horrible predictive text. it doesn't even find simple words very quickly and has emoticons.

The original predictive text on the lg g2 was vastly superior to the stock android garbage that is now on the lg g2.

How can I get that  back?

I'm sure you could find a 4.4.2 LG stock keyboard apk, however, IDK how your current stock LG keyboard would be affected, if you cold even install and older version with the new version there, unless the apk file names were different.  You might be able to use an alternative keyboard like Google Keyboard as a workaround to make this work.  You'd have to install Google KB, disable LG Keyboard and then install the older LG KB file and then disable or remove the Google KB.

If the new predictive text came with the lollipop upgrade, there is no way to revert back to the old ways. I don't have my LG G2 in front of me, but on my S5 if you go to Settings/Language and Input that is where you will find your keyboard options and where you can turn predictive text on and off. You may be able to set some perimeters in the same area...but don't get too hopeful.

While you cannot, at least my G2 won't, add more than 3 words to the bar, you can try to update the Word Suggestions in the Smart Input area of the LG KB settings menu.

I completely understand why you need to change this, some features are not useful to every user. Not to worry though, we can help you find this. Please go to Settings>Language and Input>Select your LG Keyboard>Disable "Show Word Suggestions".

I do not think that answer is what the OP is looking for. Like myself, the OP is frustrated that the predictive text that we had before the update was good, now it is totally crud. jamesdixn1 I feel your frustration. I have searched to no avail for a way to get back the predictive text we had prior to the update. It appears we are stuck with what we have for now.

Thank you for the suggestion. I think I need to shop around for a new keyboard with better predictive text. I got used to good predictive text.

     The old LG predictive text was excellent. this predictive text is exactly like the stock Google keyboard that I have on my Nexus 7 ... which sucks. 

it looks like they just took away the LG keyboard and replaced it with the stock Google keyboard. The predictive text is really stupid. You have to type the entire word most of the time before it predicts which word you want.

Just like stock Google.

Funny thing is, I have been using Google Keyboard since I got the G2, since I found the stock KB space bar too small for my thumb.  I kept hitting the comma instead of the space.  Googles KB is wider.  All,my,sentences,looked,like,this.

It is layed out differently than my nexus 7. I like the fact that it has separate numbers. The feature I liked most about the LG keyboard was the predictive text. it was really excellent at predicting the next word. Now it's just as bad as stock Google. Maybe worse.

I wonder why they did that?

There is more RAM available now but I'd rather have less RAM and good predictive text. I used it a lot. Now it's useless. It doesn't even try and you can't scroll over to see more predictions. I pretty much used it as a preemptive spell checker.

     I hope they bring it back.

I've been shopping for other keyboards but I don't want all of the gobbledygook that goes along with the keyboards on the Google App Market
