I have used already Call recording, long screenshots on my Nokia 6 2017 and Nokia 7 plus and even tried call recordings on my uncle's Nokia 6.1 and friend's Nokia 6.1 plus
So no you are wrong these custom ui are useless and they are usefull only to manufacturer to earn extra cash from ads/subscriptions.

Now if Xiaomi removes other crap from MIUI (or at least gives the option to fully remove it) that would make me happy.

Great phones but the software is too bloated.

Not a real problem. There is plenty of third party dialers. The only problem is the call recordimg function. Thats it. And this we can bypass it with skvalex call recorder. So not a big deal. For those who wants baddly the dialer and sms they can unlock bootloader and install the excelent beta developer with weekly updates or a stable version if they dont want beta developers rom. Xiaomi rocks anyway.

Then go to xiaomi.eu website to find a suitable Xiaomi.EU ROM for your device and install from there. Xiaomi.EU ROMs are based on China ROMs (which means MIUI Dialer and MIUI Messages are included) and it comes with the same Google Mobile Services which is ported by the Xiaomi.EU team.

Just search "call recording for Nokia phone" you'll see many of Nokia user asking for call recording feature because third party apps usually doesn't work properly on Android 9.

They should have give option to choose at least. I was very disappointed when I found my MI 9T pro has google apps instead of miui dialar and messages apps.

God help me. Google app (Dialn SMS) not really have many feature as we wish so alike Xiaomi default app.

It is shame, since MIUI phone app is very flexible in recording unknown and listed contact calls. But perhaps this is the reason they won't use it.
The messaging app is not something special.

If that two apps from Google get updates then its fine for me as I don't use call recording.

The only thing i have from Google is the play store. The rest- no thank you.

Just another reason to stick with xiaomi.eu ROMs (based on China ROMs but with Google Mobile Services) so that the Mi dialer and Mi Messages aren't removed unlike Global ROM.

Why are they using that elf from Hilda?
Also that's disturbing to know they did this due to privacy laws...

  • Akshay_Black

Not really about that ..
Think bigger...
