Have you ever wondered about texting in Chinese?

Texting in Chinese is a pain in the butt. Have you ever thought about it? There are so many characters, so it seems to take forever to type out a decent message. There are a few ways to type characters:

 

1.      Each character belongs to a “category”, so you can type the category symbol and then scroll through to find the character you’re looking for

2.      You can use a touch pad to actually draw the character with your finger. Then the phone will search for the character in its database and suggest the correct character.

 

Holy moly. Imagine those poor teenagers trying to talk to a cute boy after school, and having to spend their whole evening typing out a frickin message in addition to thinking of what to say. That would kill the mood pretty fast. Yeah. Even more respect for those whose native language is Chinese.
