Re: Best VoIP
My vote goes to Talkatone Premium. To be sure, Talkatone has a free version, and it works in line with Groove and Spare Phone. Talkatone Premium is the most expensive of Google Voice over VoIP options, at $20 a year, but last year, I got a promo which gave me six months of premium service free. I plan on renewing and paying the $20 when that period comes to an end. In my opinion, it's worth it.
Both Groove IP and Spare Phone had echo problems, making a conversation over the handset nearly impossible if I didn't connect a earpiece (bluetooth or wired). Talkatone Premium's echo cancellation works the best, both over mobile data and wifi. Talkatone Premium also offers the option to set voice quality to high on both wifi and mobile data (as opposed to just the 'standard' option for Talkatone free). The Talkatone Android interface is kind of outdated and ugly, but I can deal with that.
However, I should make a mention that if you are trying just to call and not receive calls, try the Vonage Mobile app, it's free. You can configure it to show your Google Voice number as the caller ID number, and I have really not seen anyone beat Vonage yet on the VoIP game. It allows 3000 minutes of free calling a month too.

Re: Best VoIP
I might have spoken a little too quickly on Spare Phone. The echo I mentioned previously came from using different mic and speaker settings. I choose the VOIP setting for both, and now echo is basically gone. With the echo gone, I am kind of digging this app.
By the way, does Groove IP adjust echo settings (when echo cancellation is turned on) to turn the speaker and/or mic volumes up or down? Because I have experienced calls that did not have much echo but the other person said my voice was too low for them to hear, and on occasion, I would find it difficult to hear them.
