Hi People, I came from a G2, and I'm very impressed with G2's messaging app, its so fast, launches right away. But when I upgraded to G3, G3's messaging app is painstakingly slow...so laggy, what is wrong with G3's messaging app? I tried installing a third party handcent sms, still the same, too laggy. is there a work around?

Stock messaging app indeed is incredibly slow. Replaced it with Textra and now all is fine again

What is it slow at doing? I see no difference in the speed between the G3 and either my M8 or Oneplus One.

Right, on mine it is pretty instant and the same as my other android phones. The only thing that was slow opening on my G3 was the gallery and that is much quicker now that I'm on H

I recently got the G3 and i instantly noticed this not so much on initial launch of the app but when selecting a thread within the sms app there is a delay on displaying the texts
While using a 3rd party app is a viable option i like the stock messaging app maybe if there was an option to keep in memory would solve this

I already sold my G3, was so disappointed with the messaging app of the G3, I bought Go SMS Pro, it's zippy for awhile, then suddenly, begins to lag like the stock G3 sms app. was so disappointed and sold my G3, then bought an Xperia Z3...
