looking for a good client as well. Tested Monal, Chatsecure already but I am not very satisfied with them. So, I am interested as well.

Currently I would recommend SiskinIM from Tigase. Monal is on active development, but has some issues. ChatSecure does some thing right (like syncing MUC bookmarks), but has some downsides as well (not waking up after deep sleep state) and its development is, well, not very active.

nice overview. 👍

On # I use #, on # #. Both do a good job.

But on # I am still looking for my favorite client. #, # and even # are installed at the moment. But all are not what I am really looking for.

GIFs are not my priority when it comes to XMPP. So I don't know anything about GIFs... sorry...

Yeah, I know... every client has its downsides... You can improve situation by reporting issues to the developers and give them some feedback. Tigase can be found on Mastodon and is quite responsive, but they prefer issues reported on Github of course.
Same applies to Monal as well.
In both cases you can also join the MUC (monal@chat.yax.im or tigase@muc.tigase.org).

What do you miss the most in #? Any way to improve the experience?
