Just downloaded both Gboard and SwiftKey at the same time. Definitely recommend Gboard since SwiftKey doesn't support my first language (: many thanks!
Use Gboard. Has a number row at the top that you can swipe up on for quick access. It also had haptic feedback on keypress, quick punctuation, emoji search.
I truly recommend Gboard, it is far superior and as @musicdjm suggested disable Touchpal.
Gboard gives you some very nice word completion features. I doubt whether you'd get the same level of features without worse attacks on your privacy.
I was amazed by the Gboard thing though. It usually picks the correct phrases for me.
