How can I scroll up to read the history?

    When I reply a sms, if I have typed a long reply, I will not be able to scroll up to see the conversation history while typing. I can only see the history after I sent the reply. (See the second pic)

    Sometimes during the reply I need to see the conversation history because the other party asked a few questions and I need to refer to it when replying.

    How can I scroll up to read the history?

    Press back once. The keyboard will be removed from screen then you can see the history.

    It works. Thanks
    But if it is a super long message, it will not work as the message will occupy the whole screen, any solution for this?

    Yea I know what you mean, some stock messaging apps do that unfortunately, it annoys me too. I usually use WhatsApp though and that you can scroll with the keyboard still open.
    You can try different sms apps in play store, I know at least one I have used in the past let the keyboard stay open while texting but can't think which off the top of my head sorry.
