    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 don't use any of those. I use hoverchat. I like the little pop up chat heads for new notifications. Not as intrusive

    Textra. It is smooth, looks good, is lightweight, and works great.

    I use ChompSMS but textra is also good... And made by the same developer.

    I like ChompSMS for the customization, the speed of the messenger, and how the devs actually respond to inquires.

    I use the Verizon messages, as I've been in areas where I have no cell service at all, but this messenger has the ability to text over wifi, and I've not found many that can do both, and you keep your same number. And it has an auto reply mode, that tells others when your driving and you'll text back once your at a safe location.

    Stock, because it shows up in the s-view window, popups on top of other apps and works in multi-view. I really hate Hangouts btw.

    Tried most of them. Used Handcent for a while. Once I get hangouts set up I deleted Handcent. It's better (imho) then the others. Never had an issue with it.

    Carved in place by my Note 4.

    Chomp.

    I used to like and use handcent but handcent is just too much. So much going on in that app. Lol. Chomp is clean, simple, and customizable. I find it also sends better quality pictures than handcent.

    I really like Textra as well. But, since I'm using Google Voice, I've been semi-relegated to Hangouts.

    Totally agree. Go SMS used to be may favorite app. The last upgrade, which tries to get in in Lollipop a little early I think, just sucks. Most of the customization that I loved is gone. I am deleting and looking for a replacement. Bummer.

    Exactly. At first I thought it was not as compatible with the phone but then I saw reviews saying it took all customization away. I wonder if there is a way to download an apk for a previous version?

    Add me to Textra.. I honestly can't believe it's free. I would have easily paid $5 for it.

    It's a beautiful, smooth and lightning fast app.

    I won't use anything but it from here on out.
