My Galaxy S3 doesn't have Emoji on Samsung keyboard?

Well, my friend said that if you update your Samsung Galaxy S3, the Emoji will be hidden in my Samsung keyboard on the microphone and the Emoji will turn much more animated, like they have color. So, I updated my phone, and guess what happens? My phone in the hidden microphone didn't have the Emoji. So I downloaded an emoji keyboard, and the Emoji were UGLY. I don't want black and white Emoji. I want colorful animated Emoji just like Samsung Galaxy S4. Is there anyway I can have pretty animated Emoji on Samsung Galaxy S3 instead? Please reply back! -Eileen

Unfortunately, the beautiful new Emoji icons on the Samsung Galaxy S4 are limited to the S4 models and up. There are, however, two workarounds you can use. One is to replace the standard messaging app with Google Hangouts, but this only works if you are in North America, and it doesn't always work yet. The other one, is to use Handcent, which we discuss in our article on how to use Emoji on the Samsung Galaxy S3. Handcent isn't 'exactly' what you asked for, but it's as close as you're likely to get on the Galaxy S3.

We're sorry that we don't have a better answer yet, but we're still waiting for our Android phones to catch up to the iPhone Emoji too.

There is unfortunately no built in emoji button on the default Galaxy S4 keyboard. Instead, what you need to do is press the microphone button, which will then bring up the submenu, from which you'll be able to access Emoji. Please revisit the main article by clicking the link at the end of the article summary on this page, and scroll down to the section titled "How to Use Built In Emoji on the Samsung Galaxy S4". This will show you the steps you need to follow in order to access Emoji on your GS4 running 4.4.2 (thanks for including the full build too!).

How can I get rid of the emoji and bring back the microphone (S-voice) in Galaxy S7 Android?

I have tried everything I can think of to re-set and change the settings so that the keyboard will accept voice input. Nothing seems to work. I don't care about Emoji, and I can't figure out how to get rid of them. The two items (microphone and emoji) seem to occupy the same space on the keyboard.

The emoticons replaced the return key on my S4 keyboard, how do I swap it back?

I have somehow changed my default keyboard to put emoticons where the return key was. How do I switch that back?. I have tried: I have tried changing they layout, and if I hold the emoticon key it does not give the return option. I tried turning of the Google speech keyboard.. I think it was caused by: I don't know what I did...fat fingered somehow
