Can't open onscreen keyboard on Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Description

I'm using Android port on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and I can't open onscreen keyboard. Menu button long press shows Samsung "S Finder" application. I can't disable it without rooting my phone. So I can't play games with text input like Space Quest 2 or Leisure Suit Larry 1 (ega). Maybe better to open onscreen keyboard automatically? It openes strange numeric keyboard now (see attached screenshot).

ScummVM version: 1.8.0
Platform: Android

Also Space Quest 3 unplayable at all because you need to start typing to show command line, so I can't click on command line to start typing.

That "strange numeric keyboard" is the AGI engine's predictive text input dialog. It is designed to model the T9 predictive text input which was previously common on mobile phones.

Type the letters of the word you want to type, and it will give suggestions. Hit next (#) to skip to the next if there are multiple matches for a set of characters, "Add" adds the current word to the command line, so you can add another "Ok" executes it.

This allows you to play AGI games with just the numeric keypad quickly.

Going to set this bug to pending / invalid for now.

Cluster: Let me know if this solves your "bug".
