    I was using the Messages+ app for Verizon, but I switched over to the Samsung messaging app instead. It's much simpler and I like that I can see my wallpaper on the back of the messaging windows.

    I use to use Hangouts all the time, but pictures can't be stored now and I don't understand why via MMS. Now, I use Textra.

    I've avoided texting apps whenever possible.
    Stopped using WhatsApps six years ago when it spontaneously deleted all my messages when I changed a SIM card.
    Now I communicate with Facebook Messenger whenever possible.
    1. It works on all the phones, tablets and computer browsers at the same time.
    2. No need to backup data (for ~ 2 years) ans all devices see it. Data is also searchable.

    So I never understood why Facebook bought WhatsApp...

    My wife uses the default Samsung app with her S6. I use Textra with my Turbo 2.

    I decided to go back to Textra and try it based on all the feedback here. Then, Textra caused me a 100% wakelock. Back to Google Messenger for now.

    I used to use HelloSMS but it seems that the developer no longer supports the app. It's not even listed on Play Store anymore. Going to give Textra a try and see what I think!

    Chomp. From the same developers that make Textra. Similar apps, but Chomp has a few more bells & whistles. I paid for the ad-free version. I don't mind ads, but they stick theirs right where you think you have a new message and it looks just like a message. Textra puts their adds in the same place as well.

    Anyone know if Textra has the function to view only photos (MMS), from the contact you are having conversation with? I like that function in stock and verizon message+ apps.

    I think the only way is to go to a pic in the conversation and then you can swap to the right and it will go through all the pics in that conversion.

    I normally bounce between Textra and the stock Samsung app but lately I've been using Hangouts. It seems to work much better than it did in the past. I've seen from the comments several people praising the Verizon Messages app. I'm gonna download it now and see how it works. I'm on T-Mobile but I don't guess that will matter.

    I've struggled with this but I think I'm happy with Google's Messenger. I don't have any problems with it and it works really well with Android Wear. I got the Gear S2 as the promotional offer with my phone, and I'm having some difficulty trying to find something that I like that works on both Android Wear and Tizen for various tasks, not just texting. Ultimately, I much prefer my Android Wear and since Messenger works so well, I should probably try to sell my Gear S2. I think it's just going to collect dust.

    I'm pretty happy with Google messenger, didn't experience any lag. I used to use chompsms because of the quick-reply but pretty much all messenger have that today.

    I've tried Textra, Google Messenger, and the stock Samsung app. I couldn't send or receive pictures with Textra, so I ditched it. Google messenger has worked best for me.

    Textra. Love that you can send/receive text through WiFi (at least for me on tmobile)
    Wi-Fi always stops after a few days installed. Always have to uninstall and go back to stock messenger app. Sad for me.

    Hangouts. It's my only option, since I use Google Voice.

    Samsung's Stock Messaging app on the S7. First stock SMS/MMS app I've used since 2011 that wasn't built into a custom ROM. and Hangouts. hangouts is so underrated. My iDad and iMom can use it. I can use it on my android, while my wife is on her android, and my mom is on her iPhone and my dad is on his laptop and it's seamless. Plus you can share your screen and all kinds of other cool stuff. Is it perfect? No, but that doesn't mean it isn't cool.

    I wish I could use other apps, for now I'm using the default app since I have Gear S watch and the only way I can send a text back on my watch is to us the default app. Wish we could use other text apps on the Gear S. So far the default app has worked fine without any lag so I'm not that upset lol
