Tried Handcent a long time ago, the UI wasn't very well thought-out. Lots of options but confusing and not well organized.
Switched to chomp, was satisfied but then came the ads(!!!), decided to pay for it.
Then heard of GO, gave it a try but didn't have the granular controls offered by chomp, went back to chomp.
Verdict: It's not that difficult (though time consuming) to try out all 3 apps by yourself and make a decision.

I've played with it for about an hour now and it seems that it's still missing quite a few little tweeks that Handcent already has. I'm starting to wonder if it's good enough for now till they add features or what is driving me to give this a shot if Handcent has it all already...
Still looking. Fun to have the option!

and of course as soon as I switch back to handcent and start loving it again, it starts making my outgoing messages gibberish. so I'm back to go sms and I guess I'll just keep the stock messager installed and use it for media messaging until they get that working again. or until handcent plays nice with my texts again.

Hey! That's the same problem I had. Look for some of my earlier posts in this thread on this very problem. This happened to me more than half the time. Moreover, it would split ANY message I sent into 10-word parts. I had a 52-word message split into 6 frickin' parts--each with 10 words and the last with 2.
When I contacted the developers, with whom I had multiple Emails, their final response to me was: "Weird. Sorry, but we can't figure it out."
I then dumped Handcent and went with Go SMS.
Note: While Go SMS has not yet turned my outgoing messages into gibberish, it HAS split my messages into 10-word ones. Ugh!

I do miss the ringtone options I had in handcent, and the ability to have my screen unlock to see my quick reply windows pop up when I get texts. I tried chomp sms for about 10 minutes but wasn't feeling it.

Hahaha I kind of go nuts when I can't text, too. It sucks that they don't know what to do about the bug. And it looks like go sms did an update within the last 24 hours, and they said they'd addressed MMS issues. I installed it and tried picture messaging again and it's still just pending forever and not going through. I just can't win

Not much love for Chomp in the comments it seems.. but I kind of want to try it out. The popup seems a lot nicer looking than Handcent's (which I've used).My Smartphone Journey on Big Red:
