    Textra for me. Go SMS has too many ads and annoying little things.

    What would I gain using Textra? I like the looks of the stock SMS and it has lockscreen notifications which I also like so I'm wondering what Textra adds to this.

    Thanks.

    Hover chat is awesome, with chat head features.

    My Android line up: HTC One M7, Note 2, Moto G 4G, Oneplus One, Note 4.
    Finally, someone mentioned hover chat. By far my favorite. The chat heads are the least intrusive pop up out there.

    Chomp SMS for me. Really like the ability to customize nearly every aspect of the app. Used the free version for a while until the ads got too annoying, so I splurged and spent like $4 for the full ad-free version.

    I actually use the Google messenger app. Not Hangouts, but the actually Google messenger app. I don't need to much customization or fancy features, and it does the job for me, and I like it better than the stock app.

    I use Hangouts for everything.
    Has Hangouts gotten better? I was using it but it started to mess up and lag a lot.

    I would be using that if it wasn't for the fact that MMS totally does not work.

    I've been using Verizon Messages for months. I hated the photo size limitations on the stock and Google Apps.

    I answered my own question by downloading Textra and trying it. There's certainly nothing special about it. I've used Hangouts, Textra and stock SMS and there's no reason for me not to use the stock SMS.

    My SwiftKey keyboard stopped lagging when I start using textra. It seems that touch wiz is really heavy. If there was a phone app that I can use I would too.

    You're one of the lucky ones. MMS never worked for me at all. Error messages up the wazoo. Even after uninstall/reinstall. If you look at reviews over at the GP store, I'm not the only one having issues. I can send MMS but receiving MMS is a no go. Settings are all correct.

    Maybe I'll give it another go since I last uninstalled it quite a while ago and perhaps Google fixed this in an update.

    I tried GO and liked it but could not deal with the weird emojis.
