[Q] Has anyone figured out changing default dialer app on Nexus 5?

Really, has anyone figured it out? For example if I install ExDialer and get a missed call notification, I always have to choose the default app to view it. It seems impossible to set ExDialer (or any other 3rd party app) as the default for opening the call history. There is always the extra tap to choose the app.

Anyone, solution? I have read the whole internet and can't find the workaround.

I can't get to really like the new KitKat dialer, want to use ExDialer ...

What happens if you freeze the stock dialer?

Well, there's two things that can be disabled. One is the Phone app. The other is the Google Dialer app. If I disable Phone then there's no difference. If I disable the Dialer app then I can open the missed calls well with exDialer but if there's an incoming call then there's no sign of it except for the led being on (I assume the Google Dialer app is responsible for displaying incoming calls and the answer/decline buttons).

So I must have the Google Dialer app running but that means I can't use ExDialer.

I've spent countless hours trying to figure this out. I've lost my hopes. There is no way to do that. I've even been flashing several different roms to test this out. Can't believe so few people are actually discussing this.
