1. drupe

drupe - Best Android dialer apps

If we see the reviews, ratings and number of downloads on Google Play Store, drupe is the best dialer and contacts app for your Android phone. It has a nice transparent interface. Once installed, you can access it by swiping the four visible dots on your home screen. In the app, you can perform various tasks just by swiping the contact name to many dedicated function keys including calling,  WhatsApp, email etc.

You can set profile pictures for your contacts and set different ringtones for different contacts too. drupe maintains four types of lists — contacts, frequently contacted, last called and business contacts for your local area.

I really liked the last one i.e business contacts. Numbers of all the restaurants, gas station, atm, airport, bakery, beauty salon, car repair and more than 70 types of business contacts are available on your phone by accessing your location. drupe also has an inbuilt call recorder.

7. RocketDial

RocketDial - best android dialer app

This list of Best Dialer Apps for Android can’t be completed without this RocketDial. RocketDial is one of the oldest apps that can be used in the place of default Android dialer. The dialer will make you remember your oldest Android phone but not because of the performance, but looks.

It has the option to select your numbers from particular sources like Gmail, Messenger, WhatsApp, etc. You can also sort your contacts by alphabet or call frequency. The best thing I liked about the app is that it allows you to make notes. So, if someone tells you anything over the phone, you can note it immediately. Also, you can see the complete call history with a contact with just one tap.

Best Android Dialer Apps

I think the Dialer apps should offer some related things apart from seeing the contacts and making the call. drupe Android dialer is very impressive as it has some additional features like built-in call recorder, ID tracker and other things mentioned in the list. It looks cool too and its paid version without ads and other features is not that costly.

Now you know that your default Android dialer lacks so many features. Play Store has almost unlimited options for you but most of the apps do not work smoothly as we tried more than the apps on this list. So these were the best Android dialer apps that will definitely change your calling experience. If you used any other awesome app in the past that should be here, let us know in the comments.
