Quick search didn't turn up anything, so I thought I'd start a thread. Since getting my HTC Evo 4G LTE I started reviewing these two SMS apps to see how they played on ICS.

This isn't a full review, but a few bullets of the pluses and minuses I found for each one, so... take it with a grain of salt.

GoSMS 4.51
Pros
  • More "polished" look, less cartoony
  • GoDoodle feature looks interesting, but haven't tested.
  • Ability to apply artistic filters to images when attaching to MMS
Cons
  • Can't auto-retrieve MMS messages
  • Can't attach contacts from inside the app (either plain text or vCard). You have to go into your phone's contact list, select the contact, share, via MMS, and then type in the recipient.
  • Still has "menu button" not "action button"


Handcent 4.2.5
Pros
  • Can auto retrieve MMS messages
  • Can send contacts and location as text messages
Cons
  • Still has "menu button" not "action button"

For now, due to the attachment of contacts and locations, I'm sticking with Handcent.

Anyone else have any input on these?
