Replace Your Stock Phone App with Reactiv Dialer

Your smartphone’s dialer app is obviously one of the most frequently used apps you have on your smartphone. We use it practically on a daily basis to call our family, friends, and co-workers. The truth is that without dialer, our smartphones would be just small, Internet-enabled PCs that are unable to make calls.

Google has already updated some of its applications to meet the Material Design requirements. Unfortunately the stock dialer isn’t one of them. If you are looking for a perfect alternative to Holo-based stock dialer, XDA Senior Member Phat7 has something that you may find interesting. Phat7 has created Reactiv Dialer, an application that offers everything that a good dialer should. It’s small, lightweight and can perfectly replace the stock Android application.

Reactiv Dialer doesn’t just have nice UI design; it’s also very functional. Searching contacts really fast by name or phone number are just a part of its vast functionality. You can also define favorites that are shown at the top of the screen so that you always have them readily accessible.

Reactiv Dialer works with every Android version starting with Ice Cream Sandwich. If you decide to buy the full version of the app, you will be able to change its theme and customize the colors.

If you are looking for a lightweight, fast, and good looking dialer application, Reactiv Dialer might be up your alley. You can get it from the Reactiv Dialer application thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
