I tried switching from a 4s to galaxy s3 (and Razr M both rooted flashed to jelly bean then) last year but couldn't stick with it due to iMessage and how android handles group texting so now im om the iP5. The mms conversion each time lagged the crap out of the phone, especially when sending and receiving a lot at a time like 1 MSG every 2-3 seconds which iMessage handles with ease. Anyway I wanted to know if the current generation of android software or hardware now is capable of handling group messaging in a smoother, seamless manner. No weird lag from converting every message to mms kind of stuff. I don't mind the mms conversion, but it was just the lag - even on the current android flagship phone at the time. I had previously tried handscent and gosmspro, but both acted the same way super lag on active groups. I hear a newer app called textra is pretty good. Nearly everyone I text is on iMessage so if I switch, texting is a big thing and I want to make sure it works well and fast. I know there are third party chat room clients but I already use groupme for the "chat room" passive chats, however I want to use texting as my method to communicate important messages in a grouped manner using phone numbers. I appreciate any feedback, the only android phone I'm considering is the Moto X of that helps. It really has marketed well to iphone users and has me really intrigued by the size, speed and features. Thanks!
