I use the original Telegram, not the one provided/censored by Google (blue icon with a white line around it), but I hear there are 2-3 better alternatives, but I did not quite catch them.

I prefer Signal, but no one is willing to use it... so Whatsapp because Telegram is from.... Russia.....

WhatsApp is so heavily integrated here, that I don't really have a choice. Everyone is on it, from friends and family to your workplace... If I had the choice and people were willing to switch with me, I personally would've preferred Threema.
Same here, WhatsApp and Viber. People don't bother too much to look into it and just go with the trend (whats most popular, and don't look for better privacy and security alternatives).
But I get it, not everyone has the time, will, or interest to look into it.

Always been a user of Whatsapp as most people in my country use it, however I also use Telegram for other things, just not communicating with people from same country. Dont care much about their privacy or encryptions methods since nothing sensible is ever said or shared on either platform.

I use both, because I have important groups on WhatsApp, but I prefer Telegram, because it is lighter and you don't have to back up your messages.
