    just set up my Nexus 5 - love it.

    BUT anybody else find Hangouts for SMS/Texts/MMS a little clunky??????

    IMO GoSMS Pro and Handcent both look CARTOONISH.

    can i please just have a basic professional TEXT app?

    or am i missing something?????????

    My SMS/Hangouts looks like just plain white threaded text messages...not sure how you can get any more simple/professional than that.

    I do think Hangouts is clunky. They should have a mini "project butter" for Hangouts lol. But in all seriousness, If you want a lightweight texting app I would go for Textra: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...?id=com.textra.

    I do not use hangouts so was wondering what to do with messaging. Will give this a try on my nexus 5 once I get it set up later this week.

    Been using it on my note 2 and it's the best I've found. I actually don't have a nexus 5 yet but come January and thanks to T-Mobiles jump program I'm upgrading to it.

    i find hangouts pretty simple. no adjustments for me whatsoever, really. other than for some reason i seem to swipe away conversations to 'archive' when i'm trying to swipe to get the active conversation.

    GV LITE Voicemail works flawlessly. although i moved carriers - to AT&T GoPhone and i set up GV VM and thought i was done but i forget - you still need to set up AT&T's VM so it can CCF.

    BTW - here is a pic of my LATE well deserved dinner tonight after F'ing around waiting for the UPS guy, wasting time on AC, setting up the Nexus 5, switching carriers, and wiping my old phones for sale for the last X hours with nothing to eat. this is the FIRST Pic i ever took with the new Nexus 5!

    not a fan of the UI - wasn't really intuitive - where/how do you send a MMS? and part of the UI also looked cartoonish.

    the best one i saw so far was 8SMS which basically looked like cleaner more powerful version of the stock sms app. but no MMS?????????

    Push the plus button, you will see a bunch of options. On top of photo, there is two icons. Push the left one. Then Just select your picture.
