    I am actually okay if it is worth it. ChompSMS used to have ads (not sure if it still does) -- But I paid the premium to get rid of them and also to support the dev for making such a good app.

    I've always used Handcent. When I got the N4 I thought I'd see what was out there and if I liked any of them more than HC. To my surprise, after trying hello, textra, evolve, etc; I wound up loving Verizon Messenger Plus! It has plenty of customization, great features, seems fast, wifi compatability....it just works.

    Of course, I don't mind supporting. I just come from an iphone where this is your text app and that's that...so I'm not used to paying for things that are there. On android it's a different game

    I'm looking for a really nice, slick clean professional app. (not particularily after one of the ones with heaps of colours and emojis and kind of kids feel about it).

    also i want it to have 'block sms's from specific number' capability

    also i dont want it to travel through any third party services/servers etc. I just want it to be a client side SMS app. (no whatsapp/free msging type stuff). I really don't want google or other services unnecessarily having complete access to all my private sms's

    what's the best one for that? - any recommendations?

    I used Hangouts for awhile, but went back to the stock app on my S5 and now my N4. I get photos from iPhone users with no problem.

    Textra no question the best. Love that they added scheduled text later option.

    still using the stock app for text messages. The stock Samsung apps just seem to work better with this phone.

    I'm using Hangouts. This isn't my first Android phone ever but it's my first after spending 3 years on iOS. Hangouts is the most similar to how texting worked on iPhones with the ability to send via sms or hangouts like iMessage. The only thing that bothers me is how hard it is to switch between the two modes in hangouts.

    Hello, every time I try a 3rd party SMS, such as Textra or Google Messenger I am unable to paste an image from the clipboard that was gathered using the Spen image clip tool. Does this happens to you as well or am i missing something?

    You have to make sure you save the clipboard data as an image. It will save to "studio" when you do that, but it will be visible in Textra or GM after that.

    Which do you all prefer:

    Textra
    ChompSMS
    Handcent
    Go SMS
    Hangouts
    Stock

    Which do you prefer and why?

    At this time, I like handcent because of the various themes, but Textra allows me to get my pictures from iPhone users better. So its a toss up between the 2.
    I only use stock on my note edge. In order to truly benifit from the s pens features I only use all the stock apps. I think they all work great. I have tried them all and always go back to stock.
