    Message Google, phone and contacts Samsung. If it's one thing I miss the most coming from Pixels for the past 5 years is having one app that supports voicemail and contacts and phone dialer. It was so much easier that way. Can't get used to the Samsung dialer and I am one that makes and receives many calls during the course of the day so I really don't want to be trying other dialer apps. I just need everything to work with minimal tinkering

    I've been using the Google message app until today when I realized that my Samsung watches work better with the Samsung message app.

    Does the Google Phone Dialer work on your Samsung without any issues?

    One of the reasons I picked up the S21 is because I found good deals on a Galaxy Watch 46mm and Watch3 45mm. When I realized you can only sync one at a time on an iphone I started looking at Samsung.

    All Google for me. It syncs and notifies across multiple platforms with my Google Account. S21 Ultra, S7+ Tablet and Windows Laptop. Modify or change anything on one device and immediately syncs on the other two.

    Yeah it works fine, it's available straight from play store at least for my S21 Ultra and don't have any issues with it.

    Thanks! I kept it on my S21 but am using the Samsung for now as I had issues with incoming calls not showing on the screen and some of the other functions were not playing nice as well. Will delete it and reinstall again. Hopefully better luck this time

    Thanks again

    I use True Phone because it's the only one of the major Contact apps I found that shows the company name along with the contacts name, and I need that.

    I found no way to have the Samsung or Google contacts app show both the person's name and the company in the list.

    Have had good experience with Textra for texts, Google for contacts and Samsung for the phone.

    Google phone doesn't seem to work properly. Was unable to answer a couple of calls so stopped using it. Using Google messages though.

    Google messages is the only app I switch out. Everything else is Samsung.

    This is a great thread topic - thanks for posting! Coming to my S10 from a Google Pixel 2, I've now switched to Samsung Phone, Messages, and Contacts. Though I will sometimes try Google Messages every now and again, for a few weeks at a time. I love both UI's.

    I switched to Google mainly because I like having a separate tone for people when they text me. You can have that with Samsung if you don't delete your conversation. But now I've noticed I'm not getting my text on my watch I have an active 2. So I think I'm going to go back to Samsung.

    I've settled on the Samsung dialer because I prefer the UI over the Google. The large circles for your favorites on the Google dialer are too much. I'm using Google messages because I it has the RCS chat features that I don't have with Samsung. I have both contact apps since you don't have to choose a default app for contacts.

    As crazy as this sounds, I keep them all Samsung because the Google Messages doesn't give me the true Black theme. I like having as much of that AMOLED black goodness as much as possible on my device.
