    Google Messenger. I've tried a few others but in the end I always come back to that one. Doesn't offer a lot of customization options, but it does what it does well, compared to others.

    But Whatsapp doesn't support texting, just Whatsapp's own IM service.

    I love Messenger, but I get alerts from the office and they ONLY come MMS. Neither the built in app, nor Messenger will consistently receive them for me (this on my last 3 phones) but Textra ALWAYS works for me. So Textra

    Not sure that's a Textra feature. As long as WiFi calling is enabled, you can do that to with any other app.

    So I really dislike the stock Samsung messaging app so I downloaded Google's generic bare bones messaging app, the issue with that is, at times it really bogs down and nearly locks up the phone from all the lag in some cases. It will always lag and nearly lock up the phone if say i'm browsing on Chrome and a text comes in, the phone will stutter for a few seconds and it's not fun at all when it's a group message going and i'm getting multiple texts.

    I know this isn't just how it's supposed to be, none of my previous phones did this. Anyone have any suggestions on the best messaging app? Or could the issue be something else? The rest of the phone works flawless, I can multitask to my hearts content without a single hiccup.

    Thank you!

    I don't know, I never had the issue on my Nexus 5x with the google messager app but this is just ridiculous on a much faster phone.

    I switched over to google messenger and it recently has been giving me issues as well. Shame because it is an amazing messaging app has everything I want in it. I went back to the stock app because my messages would all just sit at "sending" and then I would get "tap to resend." Seems like at times it has a difficult time handling group messages too

    Yup it does the same thing here as well... I have to always go back and double check to make sure it actually went through. I really wish it worked well, it's the cleanest and easiest to use I've seen so far.

    Textra seems to be the most popular. I'm about to give it a shot.

    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
