The spell check feature on Android phone checks the spelling of the words you type. If any of the words wrongly typed it shows you an error with an underline on those words. then, you’ll correct those words manually. It also shows the suggestions of the right words, but it depends on which keyboard you’re using on your Android.
On the opposite hand, the Auto-Correction feature auto-corrects all wrongly typed words. it’s different from the Spell Check. If the Auto-Correction feature is turned on you’ll notice some unwanted correction. Like, it’ll correct if a word isn’t available within the dictionary, if you type someone’s name and isn’t available within the dictionary it’ll correct the word to some unwanted word. But, to avoid this you’ll add the names/words within the dictionary manually.
