    So does anyone use Facebook messenger as their primary texting app? I see where I can allow it to take over text and I wanna know if videos sent from iPhones would show up better that way?

    Never considered it. I use Messages by Google.

    I don't trust FB Messenger but was wondering about the exact same issue - it's really difficult to send videos over text message with this phone! I wish the camera had a quick setting to downsize the video file for MMS. Does anyone have any insight about how to make this easier?

    Does message allow you to send and receive high quality videos?

    There is a video editor under settings that allows you to set it to a lower quality and send it, but I dont want to send or receive crap quality. Just sucks that ios allows HD video between iPhone users

    That is the ONLY thing I can say that I miss about an iPhone. But, I only exchange important videos with my wife (of our son) so I fixed that by sharing my Google photos with her.

    Exactly This

    My wife and her family all have iPhones, so I got all of them to download and install Google Photos. Now I can easily share my photos and videos with all of through Google Photos. Completely bypassing the horrible compression of MMS.

    Depends -- if it is a messenger to messenger video send sure it will be better. If it is a messenger using regular text / MMS to send to the iPhone user not using FB messenger then nope it won't help with it at all.

    This is a good idea, but even if they don't have GP downloaded, and this is how I send videos via SMS, I create a link in GP for the video & send the link in a text. Works flawless & doesn't degrade the video much if at all. And it doesn't limit how big of a file you can send.

    It does but also requires both parties to have the app

    I'd second WhatsApp, at least for now before FB screws that up with their ads too. WhatsApp is very ubiquitous outside the US. It should be here too. It's very close to iMessage in functionality.

    Totally, the image quality when sharing is much better than WhatsApp or Instagram.

    I don't know anybody who uses any other way to communicate apart from some who email or SMS.

    I use Google messages for texts (meaning, I'm not expecting an answer right away), fb messenger for more real-time conversations, including video calls. My family and relatives all have a mix of iPhones and Android, but pretty much everyone has fb profile, and messenger.

    I have a group of friends that have been in a group chat since about 2012, so I mainly use Facebook Messenger for that.

    I use it all the time because it's cross platform and reaches many of my acquaintances, not just my really close friends

    I don't have a Samsung S10. I have nothing to do with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, or any other social media platform.

    If you look up from your phone when you're walking down the street and see an old man with a grey beard walking along and actually looking where he's going, that could be me.

    For messages, I used Google Messages. I've never taken a video to send to someone. I suppose if I did I would simply "share" it with anyone, or everyone, in my contacts list.

    Uh .. I wouldn't say random. You must not stay up to date on security / privacy news if you think FB is just "random things" as if they didn't earn the distrust from people :P.

    I don't use it as a SMS texting app, but rather *** a messenger as only choice to talk with people on Facebook. I don't see why people are so against it. I really like it.
