    By far GO SMS Pro, i love it! You can change themes so many to choose from. You can also download GO SMS Pro emoji plugin and send emojis to iPhone users.

    Go SMS pro. It's so customizable and regularly updated. I have been using it since July when I first got my Samsung Galaxy SIII. I love it. I actually have mine set to look like the iphone text theme - neat. But there are many other themes to choose from many are free. It just works very well. I switch between text and what'sapp but text quite a bit.

    I like the stock message app. It's has a simple look that I want, without all the fancy fonts, colors, themes, etc.
    I tried handcent but the colors are kinda "flat" and cartoonish, and don't want any ads anywhere.

    Go Sms. spend a couple of hours custmising EVERYTHING (font, colour, size in each screen; conversation list, conversation, pop-up bubbles etc)
    send pics, voice clips, hand writing, doodles, emoji to other users for the cost of a normal sms (not mms) and best of all its free.
    love it

    When I first got my E4GT last September, I wanted to set individual notification sounds, as I was used to this on my Pre. I quickly migrated to Handcent and was able to do that, and is a great app that allows you to customize till your heart is content! But a similar thread like this exposed me to Go SMS and I nibbled and now it is my favorite! Now I have individual vibration pattern for people like my wife and son including custom notification symbols and more. I haven't tried Handcent in over 6 months, but I am sure you cannot go wrong with either one. But one thing I do prefer is Handcent's App Icon.Thanks to Go Launcher, I can change that as well!

    Does go sms have notifications on the lock screen like the stock app has? That's what has kept me from using handcent.

    I like Glowfly. It uses the stock app but allows notification customizations for individual contacts.

    I installed ChompSMS on my wife's S3 and she's had no issues. Seems like a solid app and has the aforementioned emoji plugin as well that someone touted for SMS Pro

    I tried it, but it didn't allow for the LED to show the right color and the number in the red circle would stay on the icon on the home screen until reboot. I really liked it, and SMS Popup but neither work properly on this phone.

    one great thing about the custom sms apps (on Go anyway) is if you have bad eyes or have problems reading text while drunk, you can set the font to be HUGE and use any font and background colour possible from a light-grid

    If you use MMS or Group messages give Go SMS pro a try. The stock app F's up group messages....

    great thing with Go Sms is that if your friends use it too, you can send pics, voice etc within a normal sms (not mms) so it comes out of your text allowance or is at least cheaper than mms
