    I use Go SMS Pro. There's so many ways to customize it plus it gives you cloud space to back up your messages.

    I actually don't mind the stock app other than the fact that the screen wakes up when a message comes through. I can't find how to shut that off. Is it an option with the stock app?

    Another one for Textra here.

    Not sure. I don't use stock but I do know in Textra I can choose that option and I have told it to not wake the screen up.

    In settings>notifications>advanced>messages there are some setting for the lock screen.

    My issue with the stock one is theres no notification while the conversation is still open. If I send something, walk away and the person replies before the screen turns off I have no clue they replied.

    What are some benefits you get while using Textra that the stock app doesn't provide?

    Blacklist ( I guess I'm not 100% sure the stock doesn't, never used it), customize the look and colors of the app (message bubbles, accent colors, etc.), customize notifications, custom vibrate pattern, send delay (in case you hit send and change your mind), gif integration for MMS. Its worth a try but if you want to make the switch permanently you will want to fork over $.99 for the pro version. If you're not willing to pay then stock is a better option. Some of those feature are probably pro only.

    For me, notifications while the conversation is open, send delay, scheduled messages, appearance changes, delivery reports.

    I used to use Hangouts but since they removed merging text messages with Hangouts messages, I switched to Textra and never looked back!

    An sms is a text message while an mms is a multimedia message =)

    Textra. Really like it. Especially since they got rid of the "bot".

    Textra here. I liked the stock app ok at first, but missed all the customization that Textra allows.

    Not sure I have a favourite. Right now I'm using the stock app. On my Nexus I use Google messenger. Both are okay. Nothing exciting.

    Here's hoping Allo will launch at some point and support sms at launch.
