    With Textra, I can see what I'm typing in portrait-mode, but in Landscape-mode (which I use 99.9% of the time) the auto-suggest (or whatever it's called) is in the way. Is that in the app or maybe on my phones keyboard options?

    I'm using the default HTC messaging app on mine. It's fast and does wi-fi, but I still wish I could change the plain-ish text boxes (besides the background). Guess that's one of the reasons it's fast, lol.

    GOSMS pro. I love the themes and pop outs for notification. You can customize almost everything on it. Paid for it with Google opinions surveys long time ago.

    That's the keyboard's "problem". Textra doesn't provide one, they use whichever you're using as default on your phone.

    I use this too. Works really well and has a couple cool features + lots of customizations
    What are some of the cool features you use? I tried it briefly but then went to the stock Messages app because that's the only app that shows up notifications on the Always On Display. But the AOD needs to expand what it shows because not even Gmail shows up there.

    I use AwSMS. A great quick reply system, fast and a responsive developer.

    If only the default dialer can be changed as seamlessly as the default messaging app.

    I use the Verizon messages+ app. I can schedule messages, it uses wifi, I can install it on tablets and laptops and it synchronized between all of your devices, I can make calls through my tablet!!!, and has tons of customizations. And I get message notifications on my S7 on AOD! Which is a huge plus!

    Those using Textra are basically using ChompSMS. They're very close in functionality and made by the same developer.

    I didn't get notifications on the AOD so I stopped using it. I can't find a setting for it. How do you enable it?

    Using the stock texting app on the Samsung Galaxy S7, works great, can send scheduled text messages for any time or day, use the text app with push bullet and your text messages can be seen and answered on just about any device and computer. Never bogs down, wouldn't change for any other.

    Should try Textra .. It does everything you said + customization (however you want it to look) along with running smooth .

    Used to love Google Messenger but if I recorded a voice clip it wouldn't seem to work for iPhone users. I've found with my Note 5 and the standard Samsung Messages app it all works and I kind of like it. So I left it on there.

    Why are more people not saying Hangouts? I don't think it's the best, but I can't use anything else unless it integrates Hangouts messages and SMS. Some people I regularly talk to use Hangouts, and some don't, and I've tried Textra for those that don't...but it's SO much easier to just do it all from the same app...

    You can disable the pop up.. Go to settings and customize away.

    I use Hangouts for the very reason you do.

    RCS messaging is coming. Google bought Jibe and they are going to RCS messaging soon. RCS is basically what the idea ofHangouts is but it will be better. Hangouts incorporates SMS/MMS/IM into one app. RCS will be all of those in one.

    Textra all the way. The stock messenger will begin to slow down as you store more and more messages. Textra never slows down and the customization it offers is flawless.
