Default [Q] can phone dialer search from call history?

I use my nexus 5 for work and I receive a lot of calls. I need to look up a call log from a number that was not saved as a contact. Dial up seems to just search saved contacts and nearby places.

Most phones you can dial the number and the call log will appear but the nexus 5 won't do that. Any suggestions?

Just push the clock sign on the left below next to the dialer to see the call history.

I know about the clock but the call history is a huge list since I first used the nexus.

I don't know the exact date of the call so why can I just search for the number in the phone app using the search bar?

I don`t think you can search in the dialer for recent numbers, maybe there is an dialer in Play that has that option.
