Default [Q] Hangout or stock SMS?

What is better between hangout and stock SMS app in Moto E? or anything else?

I had Canvas A92 before, on that Hangout didn't work properly so I have to use the stock SMS. That's why don't know much about the hangout.

I prefer the stock messaging (or a third party app) over Hangouts. I simply don't want to mix my IMs and SMS. Apart from that, I find the Hangout UI ugly..
My friend told me,there was life outside the internet and that I should check it out.
I said "Cool.! Send me the link. !!"

I tried a good number of 3rd party apps. The one that uses less RAM and looks awesome, and works well is ChompSMS.
I'm using that only for some time now. Do have a look at it!

Stock messaging app or any other 3rd party app (like 8sms). Avoid Hangouts like the plague!
