    But Whatsapp doesn't support texting, just Whatsapp's own IM service.
    Same here, using stock messages, but with the Swype keyboard. Didn't like the stock keyboard at all!

    Samsung stock app for me. It has really improved over the years. I like that there are some real font size options with it now, because I like my font small. The old version use to still be bigger than the system font even if you chose tiny in the messaging app. Now you can match it all up.

    ChompSMS. I'm having issues with the length of the sms the stock is able to send (3parts). I can't make it send longer messages as sms.

    Chomp is full featured, capable of doing dual SIM, and is very reliable. Although lately I learned that Textra had an update to support dual SIM, so I might try that. Same devs made both apps anyway. Textra is lighter though.

    Textra - mainly because of the option to add "Textra Emoji - iOS style" since most of my family group texts involve other iOS users - this way we all see the same emoji.

    I like Textra too, but I have stock apps on my home screen dock and the Textra icon doesn't fit in with the rest.

    I have Textra Pro but I actually like the stock app...I just wish it had more features or I wish Textra had the 'speed dial' feature that the stock app has!

    I quite like the stock app too, but I just wish the SMS delivery report could just tick the outgoing message in the thread rather than giving you another notification.

    I use Yaata. I've tried Textra, but I don't like it as much as Yaata.

    You can always use a launcher and use whatever icons you like.

    I love Textra and have been using it as my sole messenger for about 3 years now.

    Sorry to necro, but does anyone know if Textra encrypts SMS messages? Do I have to use Facebook Messenger with "Secret Conversations" on, or another data-based app? Thanks.

    Used Textra when I had my note Note 3 as I liked the group MMS feature better on Textra at the time which is why I used it. Don't need it as much now.
    For the S7E I have found the stock messaging app suffices.

    SMS can't be encrypted. Any app that uses encryption (whatsapp, Signal, etc..) encrypts via their proprietary system (meaning the other person has to have the same app). Signal CAN also send messages via SMS, but they warn you very clearly that any messages sent via SMS (meaning the other person doesn't have Signal) is not encrypted and you're on your own.

    Textra it's great. Never had any issues and it's not as boring as the stock app I guess. I just like messing around with settings I guess, I'm constantly changing it just because I can

    I use the stock..has a lot of options and works seamless now. If I had too I would switch to Handcent Next SMS as it's the next best option out there IMHO. Using stock with different themes has really sold me on samsung though.
