All the methods of installing the Google Dialer on the OP5 kinda worked but would not allow the user to answer/decline calls from the notification popup. Well, did some digging on this and found a solution. This is a Magisk Module, so for those that use Magisk, simple flash and restart. Be sure you select the new Phone app as default for calls. Also, need to go in and manually set the permissions for the app.

This can be done by going to "app info" for default OnePlus phone app and disabling, then by going to Google Phone "app info" and clicking on Phone App, then on the "Configure apps screen, changing the default Phone App to the only option you should have (after disabling the default one) which is the Google "Phone". Then make sure your new Phone app has all it's permissions.

Enjoy!

Update: TWRP install method added for those not using Magisk. Just flash the zip and good to go.

Thanks :) can you make a non magisk flash able zip? I'm decrypted and magisk only works on encrypted setup as far I know.

Can anyone confirm if the zip works?
I have not tested it as I use Magisk, but it should work. Worse case is that it will still not answer from notification. Should not cause any boot loop or anything like that. Have you tried the zip? There should be no issues with it, if you have issues please let me know so I can fix it...
