    Default Using Hangouts for SMS/Texts/MMS is really going to take some getting used to

    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: .

    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.

    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.
