How can I get the exact time that a specific call took place? If I go to "recents" in the phone app, I see entries with times that read like Mobile, Yesterday. I need the exact time, down to the minute.

  • If you click on the specific call in the call log, it should take you to a screen that shows the exact time. What kind of phone do you have? OS? A few extra details would help out tremendously – New-To-IT Jan 15 '15 at 20:27

For Android 5.0.x Lollipop:

  1. Either on "Recents" or "Call History", tap the entry you want to see. It will open a mini-menu under the entry with options "Call back" and "Details".
  2. Select "Details" to see the call details.
  3. From here, you can see the time when you receive/miss a call, and also the duration of the call.

In addition to Andrew's answer, you need to click the entry and not the picture of the contact for the mini-menu to appear. I was clicking the picture of the contact, and it pulls up the contact info - not the call detail.
