Will using another app like Go SMS Pro help?

This is a make or break issue for me.

Thanks in advance for all the responses.

Something related to this, and as I'm looking to get a Nexus 5 very soon, I've just started playing with Hangouts this evening on my Samsung phone. Something that's not immiediately obvious to me with Hangouts, is how I send a text message to an arbitrary telephone number, e.g. +86*** and how to send to recepients that aren't on Google. which is most of my contacts.

I'm thinking it's because I'm in China, and so Hangouts is going to be limited to Google contacts and chat only, no SMS.
