    Give Yaata a try, I replaced gosms with it. The developer is from xda and supper responsive. There is a support group on Google+

    I've been using the default Samsung Messages app, tried Textra, but it has this weird drawing lag when opening it. I liked Chomp, but they want a yearly fee, I really liked Evolve SMS, but the delivery toast is kind of annoying, I'd rather just have a simple check mark for the delivery confirmation. Google messenger has this weird glitch with the quick reply not closing the keyboard when done. Hangouts works ok, except the contacts list is horribly horribly slow to load. Samsung messages doesn't allow delivery reports without the notifications. So I'm pretty picky I guess.

    Hangouts for me. Super quick and easy to use. For now most of my friends are on it so I don't have to worry about what platform they are on.

    I've been using GoSMS on for years now on my Past 4 Android Phones. Maybe I will try Textra.

    Gave Yaata a try and good call @cynkrzy - definitely a nice SMS replacement app and very customizable with lots & lots of options!

    I've been using Yaata for the past couple days....It looks to be a fairly new app with only 10K downloads but I really like it. Thanks for the suggestion @cynkrzy !

    Yaata is kind of like going to a buffet for messaging. If you have it definitely delve deep into the settings and try everything. I didn't like the popup, but I really like the heads up message alert, and the ability to customize every aspect of the entire app.

    I turned the popup off but liked the chathead feature as well - so many things to tweak on the app!

    I use the chathead when the screen is unlocked, the big popup when the screen is off.

    Like the customizing toy can do with yaata but it refused to DL a photo. No idea why, textra did it right away
