    Not sure if I'll make sense but I'm gonna try : one thing I miss from iPhone is how easy it was to make a phone call when you find a number on a Web page, or someone texts you a number etc. Just long press and you're dialing. Now I have to copy paste?? Or even remember it if it comes in funny format like 098/555-555-555
    Or hopefully in doing something wrong :-)

    I rest my case.

    I believe that you can thank Apple for that, as they filed a patent infringement against the other manufacturers to prevent them from allow that.

    Don't long press, just tap the number and it should bring up the dialer.
    mcm180 and Marina Bumber like this.

    I just verified that this info is correct. Works perfectly on my S5.
