I have a Nexus 5 with root permissions. Google Dialer annoys me. I installed ExDialer & Contacts. How to set this Dialer as my default dialer?

I will welcome any advice.

  • Welcome to the site! I'm actually kind of confused by your question; I think this would be as simple as replacing the blue "Phone" app icon on your homescreen with the "Dialer" app. I just installed ExDialer & Contacts and that method works for me. Have you found some case where it automatically brings up the Google dialer?

  • I would imagine an incoming call would be the issue. Can you go into Settings > Applications and remove the defaults for the stock dialer / phone? Or does your EX Dialer have an option in settings to make default / surpress stock?

  • @dotVezz, thanks for the answer. I replaced the standard icon on the icon of the new application. However, I do not know whether there is an option in the settings of operating system that set up the standard dialer. For example, I can install my custom keyboard. Fortunately, I have not had any problems yet. I'm worried because android implemented service architecture (Intents) and I do not understand where other applications will be addressed.

  • @RossC, thanks for the answer. Unfortunately, I can not remove the defaults for the stock dialer. This button is not active.

This isn't hard.First,you need to disable phone by defaults.go to "manage app",select phone...clear defaults.then go to the menu,remove the phone icon and replace with the exdialer...then i think it should be easy from there on....any where you get a prompt select the exdialer
