Question: iMessage vs Carrier text?

I think apple should have a switch button where, we could select between iMessage and the carrier text, I really like to text with iMessage but sometimes i really need to use the carrier text, but I have to change in settings and is some annoying, I think it will be so much easy.

iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 11.2

If the person you are texting has an iPhone and has enabled iMessage, and you also have enabled iMessage, why would you ever want to send as SMS? And if you are not sending to an iPhone the message will always go as SMS, even if you have iMessage enabled.
