The Google Dialer IMO is a mess - not intuitive, cannot edit a contact from call log, long press does nothing, can't delete individual calls and I don't use the local search...
The only thing I miss about my Samsung is the dialer and their awesome swipe left to text swipe right to call feature.

So is there anyway to change the dialer to a better one? or incorporate the swipe to call/text feature?

Try exdialer, it incorporates all the swipe features.

I've never actually tried a different dialer. Is it really necessary at all?

I actually have the same problem. Is it possible to revert to the Jelly Bean AOSP dialer (and contacts)?

I completely forgot about dialers on the play store.

A themed exDialer is now my default app. It looks a little better than Dialer One though both solve my issues.

Much thanks.

1. Tap the contact picture or icon and it will pop-up the individual contact card. From there you can edit the contact or use the other contact methods.

3. Tap on any entry on the call log and it will open a details page for that call. The menu button will appear and you have the option to delete that individual call from the log.
