    Hi, I'm afraid I don't know the differences between the Apps, but you basically have two choices, use the stock Samsung texting app, which incidentally works fine for me, or try each app in turn and choose which ever you feel most comfortable with. Phil

    Google voice is used for verbal commands and things for the phone, messages I believe is the stock messenger, Google hangouts they tried to make an all in one app with failure, not sure about verizon+ as I'm not on verizon. For my apps I downloaded an app called messenger made by Google. It works very well and isn't as plain as the stock. Over all though the stock messenger would be your best bet for default
