Default [Q] Issue: Dialer in Landscape mode [android 4.4.2]

Hi
I using my Nexus 4 when I am driving in landscape mode using Screen Rotation Control apk from google.play and after update to Kit Kat the dialer orientation in 4.4 it's not the same like in 4.3
I make some screenshots
In Android 4.4




and when I receive a incoming call




And the old dialer from Android 4.3 in Landscape




In version 4.4 the dialer.apk becoming googledialer.apk and I don't t know if it's work just to replace them
I studying them and I find in dialer.apk from 4.3 a folder with the name "layout-land" and this folder is for landscape orientation, in googledialer.apk this folder is missing.
it's possible to put this folder layout-land in googledialer.apk ? I tried but no success

Yes, it looks as if Google have completely removed landscape from the dialler. They clearly want everyone to only use their phones in portrait mode...

Don't have a nexus, but an i747 sgs3 (d2att) and this is also in CM11 based on 4.4.2. It seems all 4.4.2 based roms using google's dialer have it. The google dialer has regressed. Added features and subtracted others. Missing landscape mode and also being white with black letters is annoying. Hope this gets fixed somehow.
