Block text spam on mini?

Is there a way to block text spambot on the Axon 7 mini? AT&T can't and I'm unsure if the phone has a built in setting? If not, can someone recommend a third party app?

Thanks

    You are receiving SMS spam ? You can use a black list with Textra or other SMS apps or you can use a filter app like Hiya

    Reply with STOP in all caps.  Doesn't work in all cases but does help with spammers using short codes as they will be blocked at the carrier level.

    You can't really block text spammers on any cell phone . 

    Putting a text number into Blacklist just shunts the message to storage without you seeing it.  You still get charged for it if you are on a pay-by-text plan.

    Reply STOP is the first thing you should do.  But it depends on the spammer removing you from their list.  Some advertisers will do this automatically, but true spammers will just ignore it.

    Sadly the USA seems the only country in the world that has mobile plans that charge on received SMS messages, when you cannot stop receiving them as you can deny answering a call.
