    What's the consensus out there? Which is better and why?

    Handcent for me.

    Never tried Chomp, but then again I've never needed any more than what Handcent offers.

    The pop-up (if you wanna use it) is great. You can also customize the ever living snot out of Handcent should you decide you want to!

    Same here,

    Never tried Chomp. Tried Handcent and didn't feel the need to look any further. Massive customization and the popup is incredibly useful to me. I've had no problems with it at all.

    Don't think Chomp can send picture or video messages. Handcent is the way to go...

    Handscent is amazing. I don't even think Chomp can do mms, if I'm not mistaken. I've also tried Go Sms and the UI was almost identical to Handscent, but it offered less customization.

    I tried Hanscent, didn't like it.
    Tried Chomp, liked it better.
    Go is the best IMHO. Less missed texts. Lots of options.

    Yes, Chomp can do MMS. I prefer Chomp, personally, just liked it better than Handcent.

    Agreed. Go SMS is far better than Chomp and Handcent.

    Is there a way to set handsent notifications so I don't get 2 for every text ? I get one that looks like its from the app but the other comes up like a stock droid one-which is the one I want to shut off.

    Turn the notifications off in your stock messaging app.
