I might return this phone. Do I just need to give it more of a chance?

Tip us?

Hangouts won't let you use groups either, unless you consider G+ circles as groups.

iMessenger uses AppleID in order to exchange messages with other iPhones and, in this case, use as a group messenger.

Hangout integration with SMS copy's the same integration that iPhone made years ago with iMessenger and SMS. Since you use Google Account for Play access, G+ it's just consequence and Hangout using Google Accounts to exchange messages.
