I'm greatly annoyed by GoogleDialer's phone app which shows caller picture blocked 50% by black blank area. What files do I have to edit to make picture more bigger or atleast make that blank space disappear?

I know that I could simply get another dialer but I like Google's version. That blank space just bugs me.

Ah, yea Xposed would do the trick, if rooted. If you aren't rooted, then using another app like I posted would be about the only thing. You still place calls like normal, just when you go to answer, it'll pop up with the app / full screen that can be themed and all that. It doesn't have it's own dialer UI like ExDialer or something along those lines and when you click on a number, it still opens up to your normal dialer. So you'd still be sticking with the stock phone app for 90% of things.

There's an xposed module called XBlast that can do it. When you install it, go to Phone Tweaks > Fullscreen Caller Photo.

I know. It just doesn't look nice since it's all transparent. When caller has white or bright picture, you can't basically see the number or name and it's very annoying.
That's why I like the default look since it has 50% transparent layer on top which shows name & number.
