    Default HTC One M8 - Dialing number from website text

    Hi,

    I used to have an iphone and when you long pressed on a telephone number on a website the option to dial that number popped up. With the M8 it seems I have to select the text, copy it, close app, open phone app, paste number and then dial.

    Am I missing something or is this the only way to do it?

    Thanks
    James

    Apple calls it data detectors.
    They hold all or most of the patents to it, it's an iOS feature.

    Well, sometimes it also happens with me too !! my device call directly to only those number having codes attached i.e. +*** and the numbers that are directly put over to the site like 92383... I have to copy them and then open the dialer and again I need to paste them over the dialer to call.
