    Hey guys, what it your favorite dialer? My HTC inc I used GoContacts, and now with GNEX I am using Rocket Dial which is pretty damn good. What is your favorite dialer?

    I used to love GoContacts. Unfortunately, they're having issues with it, so I've been stock until they get it updated. I haven't looked into others yet :)

    the stock dialer on this thing is HORRENDOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can't speed dial. Can't type letters to quick search. Best bet is leave it on frequently called. Then even if same contact home and mobile are in frequently called, it asks you which you want to call no matter which you click on (if ur gonna have both numbers showing as 2 different on freq called, just call that one when i click it) Then need to switch to dialer if not in contact list.

    I started using RocketDial but can not find a screen on the main page where I can see a scrolling list of Speed Dials. Any ideas? Thanks
    I find Rocket Dial overtly complicated and not so user friendly.

    I've been using TouchPad. A lot like my HTC dialaer from my Incredible, but with additional. features. I like the big keypad that ICS gives you, but just missed too many features.

    After trying several, I like TakeOne. I use it as a Contact finder, too, freeing up a spot in my dock. The name looks something like TAKEphONE.

    I am using Dialer2. Pretty simple and I like the dark theme. And I love how few permissions it needs.

    the dialer is too big for my hands. I can't dial with one hand. Is there a more compact option?

    Hopefully the GO team will update Contacts/Dialer for ICS. I see they did get Go SMS updated within a week of launch, I'm still keeping my eye out on the others. I love shortcut dialing. While I love the look of the stock dialer, I got really used to dialing by name like that.

    Dialer one was always my go-to. I found the dial a name feature is the only thing needed. 3 numbers or less and I had my contact.

    I must be the only one who likes the stock dialer haha. I leave it on the contacts page which allows you to search and dial immediately a lot like having MIUI's dialer on there.
    foo and BCM like this.

    Another vote for DialerOne here, it searches by both name and number at the same time, which is my main requirement for a dialer. (and of course that it actually DIAL... :D)

    I absolutely love the look of the stock dialer. But (and I know this is an awful example), with Go Dialer (and others), I can just start "typing" their name on the number pad. 6 for M, 6 for O, and 6 for M... (yes, MOM is the devil...). it was just so much easier than having to hit the search button, type, then call from the results. I could open the dialer, hit 666, and boom, mom was right there. (others too, but that's the easiest example)

    Hit the little phone symbol instead of the actual contact (to the left) and it will dial directly the mobile or home, whichever call was. Either that or this is is a setting, because mine does it fine.

    Speed dials is the starred contacts. Put a star on them and they tile nicely at the very top of the frequently dialed numbers.

    Type letters to search from any search screen -- the unified search bar outside the phone app (on any screen) or just tap the search symbol.

    I think everything works better if you don't think of the number pad as the "entry" screen to the phone. The number pad does almost nothing for you. Don't start there. Start on the frequently called numbers screen to the right. You're lightning quick where you need to be from there.

    For Dialer One. How do I use the stock phone icon instead of the dialer one version?
