If you don't have a physical bluetooth keyboard or an use keyboard with an OTG usb adapter, you can use Hacker's Keyboard.
It is really cool, you have all the keys you miss under Better Terminal Pro.
It has a tons of options so you can "dumb it down" no autocorrect, no suggestions etc ... so it doesn't bother you when you type the weird console commands.
Enjoy and thx to Klaus for this free app !
