Whenever I can, I switch auto-correct off. I'm capable enough to make my own mistakes. I don't need any help in that. ;)

It can come up with the correct spelling if you set it to UK English (in Australia) but can still insert a completely wrong word. Like trying and help someone with a bad stammer.
You need to thoroughly proof read after auto-correct which seems counterintuitive.

Why does one suppose that I use the term "auto-corrupt" instead of what the marketers would prefer?

If you stick with it, it learns your writing style and, in my case at least, has become pretty good at correcting all of the mistakes I make as I type. I tend to use the phone only for txt messages and brief replies to emails. My 'quality browsing time' is almost always carried out on a desktop or laptop using a traditional keyboard. It is beyond me how people manage to use phones and iPads and the like to do all of their browsing.
