I never tried Hangouts for SMS. 8sms is good however if you like Textra, I don't think theres much reason to switch. Both apps seem fairly similar to me though I don't do anything fancy.

I think the Hangouts with SMS integration is a good start. However, I think the integration could be better - it should be a single conversation thread for a SMS & Hangout. Outside of that, it doesn't do repeating notifications. I use GoSMSPro - it's highly customizable, has many features and doesn't slow down with thousands of messages.

yeah the only reason ive changed as ive said earlier is some of the contact names are not shown , and it seems lots of peeps have the same problem for those using nexus5
