I have been satisfied with the stock SMS Messenger App of my Samsung S7 Edge.However, i love experimenting in search for the best app.
Lately, i tried the Messenger Apps of Facebook and Google. Both have just accomodated SMS on its individual platform. But i’m telling you it didn’t last a day for me using either app.
FB Messenger combines in one screen both SMS and FB chat messages. As shown below, SMS messages are in purple while FB chat messages are in blue with the FB Messenger logo.
While the Google Messenger displays like GMAIL app where the first letters of the contacts are displayed as shown below.
You can’t also reply on preview of the incoming message although FB Messenger allows SMS on Chat Heads and open the SMS without closing the current screen.
While Google Messenger allows DUAL-SIM option,
FB Messenger isn’t.
For now, i’m not totally abandoning both FB Messenger and Google Messenger for SMS. I’m giving it another shot in the future once updates and modifications are made by its creators.
