Windows Phone 8.1 "shape writing" keyboard is the fastest in the world

Does anyone know what that sentence is? I'd like to see how fast it takes me to type that same sentence with my phone and keyboard as a comparison. Is this going to be the next test in that Smoked by Windows Phone campaign?

I think this is it... At least this was the one used by Swype to set the Guinness record back in 2010

I expect that whatever sentence they used is loaded. They probably tested a number of sentences to make sure that those would be harder to type on all other phones. That seems to be how they set up the tests for that "Smoked by Windows Phone" contest they had a few years ago.

"While that is very impressive, we're curious whether it is really the software that deserves the credit on that record. It would seem to us that the person whose hand swiped in the sentence should get the majority of the credit for their speedy arm muscles. "
Michael....I know it was in a joking manner....but I can assure you the software does play a part in it.
The gesture keyboard abomination HTC released with the Rezound would tell you too...lol. Whats on the latest version of Android isnt bad...but I still use Swype...the dictionary feature, add words features is just better on Swype.
Fastest might be fine....but I want functionality too. I dont even know what HTC is doing in this area anymore....but I hope they improved on it from the Rezound days.
