Texting on this phone since the last major update sucks. I've tried using the Samsung and Google keyboard and both are very flawed. I'm using the most recent sw update, have tried using safe mode to eliminate 3rd party app issues and completed a fdr but issue still persist. I hope a sw update comes out soon to fix it because it is very very annoying. As an added note, the issue is with all texting such as Google, standard texting, fb msgr, notepad, etc.
