    Default stock lg messaging app.

    How is your experience with the stock sms app? I love how it look and feel but it lags. Any third party apps worth downloading?

    Personally, I have never been a fan of the stock messaging app on any device I have had.
    I have tried a few and I love Go SMS Pro as my main texting option.
    Just my $.02
    Everyone has their favorite.

    Does the LG G3 stock SMS app suck?

    That thread should offer some opinions for you.

    Right now, I'm using Handcent and I like it. I've used Go SMS Pro in the past, as well, and I liked it also.

    I'm going to start using Hangouts because of the Android Wear support. Now I can reply to texts via voice on my watch.

    Ya I second that. I just installed Textra tonight and I love it.

    I've been using Handcent for years, but it has gotten so bloated, and now their new version 6 is laggy. The reason I stuck with Handcent for so long is because it was the only SMS app which displayed incoming text on the lockscreen and allowed me to reply without even unlocking my phone.

    Textra does that as well, except it looks a tad different in the way that it does it, but the end result is the same. Plus Textra seems better optimized and not bogged down with all that extra crap that Handcent has.

    I haven't noticed any lag with the stock messaging app. I used to use GoSMS and absolutely hated it. All the "Go" apps (SMS, Launcher, Locker, etc) are horrid. They have lots of lag, are bloated and the developer inserts nag pop ups in the apps and notifications whenever he updates. Just horrible apps.

    Never liked the "GO" line of apps.

    I like the stock app. I do. But like the OP stated, mine stutters here and there and it can get quite annoying but I still use it. I also like hangouts and would use it, but it seems (unless someone can school me??) you can't use it unless the other party is using it also.

    I prefer the stock app as well and you're right it does stutter from time to time (for me it's when it is initially loading more so than any other time). Hangouts works fine for standard SMS and MMS and the recipient does not have to have Hangouts installed. It will work just like any other texting app. For instant messaging and video calling though, the recipient does need Hangouts for those features to be of any use.

    That's what I thought about SMS. If I send a regular SMS to my wife using hangouts, she doesn't receive it using stock on her S4 but when she turns on hangouts, she'll get my SMS. Weird.

    You need to set up Hangouts as the default messaging app in Hangouts settings. Then it should work fine.

    I'll give that try. I never set it as "default", I just used it.

    I haven't noticed any stutter in the stock messaging app, but I keep it pretty well cleaned out by constantly deleting messages.

    I've tried other app but still continue to use the stock app.
