I was using the stock messaging app because I like it a lot and and I started to see that pictures looked like crap when sent to others even after changing the mms to 1000k. I then started using hangouts and saw that pictures are set more high quality, why is this happening on stock? This first image was sent via hangouts and the second image was using stock messaging app, you can see a big difference in quality

I'd prefer to use hangouts but I send and receive a lot of pictures for work and am often on wifi. On hangouts I have to disable wifi to download the mms. On stock, I don't

Yup. Send fails over wifi. You'll receive a text saying you have an sms, but it won't successfully download until you go off wifi.

Mms is sent through the cell network so it makes sense, but the stock app works which makes me think it temporarily disables wifi in those situations. Why can't hangouts do the same?

Yeah my stock app compresses too. I only got 100-300k options. Bummer too cuz I like it more than other messaging apps. If there's a fix to this I'd like to know.
