I use Slack exclusively as the only work IM tool and
none of the above is true. I'd say even the opposite.
The experience on Android is pretty well integrated
and overall it's a solid IM experience. Not once the
battery usage showed near the top in the "apps most
using battery".

That's not to say "Slack's the best go for Slack", but
just painting a different picture, coming from daily 10+
hours of using it.

In our professional work environment, we use emojis
/a lot/. Like, seriously a lot. It makes the experience
that much more...human. IRC next to it feels very cold
and raw, imho.
