    I'm not a fan of the Samsung phone app and I am hoping that I can get some recommendations for a replacement. I tried installing the apk for the Google Phone app that comes with the Pixel 2, but the installation attempts always failed.

    I would recommend Truecaller. Some additional useful features are spam call filtering and caller ID for unknown numbers.

    I would steer clear of truecaller.

    Read this article. On my phone I never registered with truecaller I rarely got apam calls. On the one registered to truecaller I had endless spam calls.

    I prefer the Samsung apps, but Google's are pretty good, too:

    Google Contacts
    Google Dialer

    He is recommending Asus dialer, which I did use and liked

    But it looks like it has been removed from the Play Store.

    Just curious why you would change phone dialers? Not trying to start anything, just wanting opinions. Maybe I'm missing something.

    It's just an issue of look and feel. I am coming over from Windows Phone and still dealing with the adjustment phase.

    I get a message that Google Dialer is not compatible with current version of Android.

    I'm a former Windows Phone user too. The dialer app icon disappeared from phone today, and the Samsung help agent said it was because the default Samsung Caller app is not compatible with Microsoft's Arrow launcher - which I have been using from Day One with my S8. So not sure why it is suddenly an issue today. But I now am also looking for a new dialer app.

    personally, I hate LGs default dialer. and it hasn't gotten any love in years. i'm currently using exdialer but am dumping my LG for the new Sony. I had Sony before and LOVED there dialer better than anyone else's so far.

    I don't know what that Samsung Agent is going on about. I still have the Samsung dialer icon available and the app still works.

    As I stated in a response to another poster, it's about look and feel. I am simply exploring alternatives.

    Since getting the Pixel 2 I love the simplicity of the Google dialer. That said I never really had issues with any others, though I would say LG's was probably my least favorite but it was never bad enough to replace it. Samsung's is good to. Honestly I think it's pretty hard to screw that app up.

    Absolutely!!
    TrueCaller is something no one should use but everyone does. And you can see the effects of it anyway. Whenever you install it, you upload your contacts and information to its servers for others to see. And I am not comfortable with it. Also noticed that the people who use it get more spam calls.

    I would suggest using the stock dialer from Google. As I am on OnePlus 5 and previously been on Moto, never had any issues. Pretty stock in both.
