    Hello everyone,

    I'm researching into which text messaging app works the best with the Droid 3. Currently using the Stock Text app. I have used the Go SMS Pro, but felt like it lagged my phone.


    Which app would you guys recommend? Handcent or Go SMS Pro?

    Pros & Cons? And which uses less memory?


    Thanks!

    handcent is my current go to texting app, although the two are very similar. can't speak on memory since i don't check it, but i experience minimal to zero lag with it

    I've used Handcent SMS since I got my original droid. No complaints 2+ years later.

    Go SMS user here - tons of themes and very nice to use...definitely similar to HandCent but Go SMS seems more smooth to me.

    I use Go SMS and swear by it. Handcent was a bit laggy for me.

    When I first got my droid about 2-3 months ago I asked all my friends what main/major apps I "need" to have and they all said Handcent first. I havnt used Go SMS but I know my experience with handcent has been great. I can customize every part of the theme for each person I txt and the quick reply features usually work great w/o any problems or glitches.
