Ordered an ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe. Samsung seems to be continually plagued with ass for battery life. I didn't like my S6 as much as I did my HTC One.

This is the first phone I've had with stock android. it's taken a bit to get use to. While its not horrible, I don't get what people have against HTC Sense and Samsung Touchwiz. they're both really nice overlays. One thing I noticed is that google's default SMS app blows ass. It didn't even give me a number bubble on the icon. I downloaded QKSMS and its really simple and nice. Whatsapp just looked me to me and I rather not see the app name at the top at all times. I just needed something for SMS and not for everything, and the minimalist design of QKSMS works perfectly for me.
Try the Verizon messages app. I still prefer it over the regular SMS app but the smilies still annoy me because they only have their classic ones (looks like Apple emoji) or default (looks like Facebook emoji). The classic is far better than those lifeless faces they have as default.
Even tho it's labeled as Verizon messages, any android phone can use it because it's just another SMS app on the Google play store. It's actually pretty good after changing some of the default settings around.
