I've got an Asus Zenfone 9 and I accidentally deleted the system messages app, how can I restore or reinstall it?

Also, is there a way to make the phone's touch not so sensitive? If I somehow accidentally put it in my pocket without locking it it will push all sorts of things, the same thing happenes when I'm on a call or whenever the phone is not locked and slightly remotely touchs any part of my body, even if that part is clothed. 

Thank you,

Unfortunately Asus put the the Smart Key at the wrong height, to avoid unlock the screen by accident you will need to select Push Only for Screen Off Unlock. To installed the Messages App go to Play Store and install Google Messages again.

Already done that, the problem is not that I accidentally unlock the screen, it is that when the phone is unlocked all kinds of things get clicked unintentionally even when it's in my pocket or just lying somewhere like for instance on my chest when I have a shirt on.

Is Google Messages the default Asus Zenfone 9 messages app?
