Default better phone dialer?

so, I dont know if I'm alone, but I absolutely hate the sense dialer that comes stock with the phone. It's super ugly and is really counter-intuitive. Does anyone know of any ((WELL-DESIGNED)) DIALERS that are available? I've seen some super nice ones on custom builds, but I dont know how to go about changing just the dialer from there. any help?

I agree. To sound goofy I like the stock Android dialer or even the Touch Wiz dialer.

You gotta root or maybe there's an app replacement. IV searched for a stock dialer and had no luck

I'm also interested in a dialer replacement. I tried Go Dialer/GO Contacts, but it wasn't great.

I really like RocketDial. You should give it a shot, I think it's better than the stock dialer. They have a free version as well I believe so you can try it first.

You also might want to check out Dialer One, it is free and is pretty nice. It has some nice customization settings. I used to use it on the Droid 1 since the old android dialer couldn't do T9 searches.
