Hey guys, SMS alternative for galaxy s4? I've been using hangouts, but I switched back to stock cause I love the lockscreen setting. The stock messaging lags though, so it gets annoying from time to time. Anyone got better ones than those two? I've used textra, goSMS, sliding messaging pro, and 8sms. any underrated ones i haven't heard about?

THANKS!

I've been using sliding sms. I like it quite a bit its a 4.4 kitkat based messaging app with some hangouts features

Also a lot of options for customization. I think it looks cool too

Try hello SMS. Has auto night mode and extremely light.

I personally use the once named Ninja SMS, now known as Hoverchat. Uses the floating heads/windows like Facebook messenger. Have had no issues with it.

Textra is my daily sms/mms app. It plays nicely with Apple group texts.
