SMS vs MMS which is optimal
I understand the difference between SMS and MMS, but what I don't understand is why I cannot receive PNG file format in Messenger, but can do so in Hangouts. I also cannot send a PNG file format via Messenger (‘Unsupported picture format’) but can do so via Hangouts. So i guess the ultimate question is: aside from this particular issue is one app better than the other?

Re: SMS vs MMS which is optimal
Are you trying to send the picture file in Messenger with mobile data turned on? Remember that MMS requires mobile data, while sending a picture via Hangouts can be done over wi-fi.
I'm not aware of any restriction for sending .png files via the stock SMS/MMS messaging app, but if it's an issue, have you tried renaming the image file with a .jpg extension? I believe the two extensions are essentially interchangeable.
