Default Replace phone and calendar app

I rooted the phone and using
RomAur v2.0 XZ2 AROMA ROM. So the phone and calendar are same as the stock rom. I don't like the phone app as it doesn't have frequently contacts and it is not full text search. You have to match from the beginning of the contact name.

I have titanium backup the contact and calendar from old phone (samsung galaxy s2) and was trying to restore it on Z2. But TB shows warning that it's trying to restore system app from a different rom, which might not work. How should I do?

If I want to try restore those, how should I backup the current phone, calendar without overwrite the backup file (phone, calendar) from galaxy s2.

Or is there any recommended phone/calendar app on play store?

PS: I like the samsung contact search feature as it's not only full text search but also index the chinese character in english spelling. So I can type english to search chinese names!

I don't think it's possible. Samsung apps only work on TouchWiz.

You could try the official Google dialer. Let us know if you do and it works well!

I tried that and it force closes when trying to view the call log.

Any ideas?


I really hate the sony dialer and how it butchers google voice integration.

I ended up using Contact+/Message+/Dialer+. It's really well designed. Try it!

I've used a couple of versions of Google dialer and the CM11 dialer on stock based ROMs on my Z2.
