There's no cons only pros. It basically does the same as default SMS app only that its integrated with G+

I have only seen this reported for Sprint users, but when I type 160 characters it just stops. I can't enter any more characters and it doesn't continue on to create a split message. Back to stock SMS for me until this is fixed.
I've been using it for about a week and I've been pleased. While there is a lot of consternation about the lack of true "unified" messaging a la iMessage, it's nice to have SMS/Hangout chats in one spot since I use them both. I find MMS and SMS work very well, over standard data connnection and wifi, whereas with the stock app and others (GoSMS, ChompSMS, etc) I'd have issues with sending MMS via wifi. I'm currently using a Droid Razr Maxx HD... not sure if it's a unique issue to me, or the device, but Hangouts SMS integration has seemed to solve that. My Note 3 will be delivered today, so excited to join you guys in that regard!
