Have you tried just talking at it? Its actually pretty good lol so ive started using that. Also swipe text works quite well. Just start on the first letter, and drag your finger to each letter in the word. Also try orientating the phone sideways as it makes the keys a bit bigger. The only only one problem i have had with this phone, is that it occasionally switches of the 'Auto Rotate' feature, and i have to re-enable it in the display options. Apart from that, best piece of technology i have ever owned.
