    I don't have an S7 E, but this is a great thread. The one thing that has kept me using the default Samsung Messaging app (on a GS5) is their implementation of Quick Reply AND the fact that it will turn the screen on when I get a message. The Samsung quick reply ESPECIALLY comes in handy if I'm doing something else on the phone (like playing a game or video) then I can quickly respond to the txt that came in without the game or video losing focus...i.e. you can quickly triage/respond to the message and not have the game or video be interrupted.

    Can anyone on this thread tell me if the Textra implementation of quick reply does this now? or does the quick reply still fill the whole screen and force the app you were using to lose focus?

    I use Messenger. Clean, simple and for the most part reliable. Only issue has been every once in a while it will not want to send a picture in a text. Other then that I have never missed a text or had one ever not go out.

    I have tried all the others. Evolve wasn't bad, but it was a hot mess of settings, views, etc. MMS is pretty straight forward, no need to over complicate things IMHO.

    Yes. There is a "Blacklisted" section to hide messages from numbers you put there. So, you can go to the Blacklisted section under Settings and look at the messages later if you want but you are not notified about them.

    Signal, Skype, Textra, Telegram...Google Hangouts is the most universal. Don't want to get wrapped in the FB eco system at all.

    I have been using Google Hangouts. Since I am heavily invested in Google's ecosystem I rely on Hangouts for not only my T-mobile Carrier SMS, but also my Google Voice messaging. I have been using it for a couple of years now and it does a decent job. I have tried other messaging apps (Google Messenger, Textra, Samsung Messages), but I eventually go back to Google Hangouts.

    I believe AOD is only for Samsung apps at the moment.

    I've been using the stock messaging app. I tried textra and a few others that I liked alright but why don't any of them let me change the background? I like that about the Samsung messaging app and it keeps me coming back to stock. I did like textra but it's so boring looking without the background.

    So the only issue that I'm having with Textra is sending MMS video. Pictures send fine, but video clips always fail. I tried altering the MMS size settings but it still doesn't work. :/

    EDIT: I figured this out.

    I use Signal. Very good, and encrypts if both sender and receiver have the same app

    I personally don't like tetra's pop up reply box it takes up the entire screen and is ugly. Google messengers quick reply is so nice
    That can be turned off in Textra settings.
