    Android 4.4.3 May Bring Major Dialer Redesign


    We have been hearing about the probability of an Android 4.4.3 update coming any day now, but it has yet to appear. For the most part it is rumored to be a slew of minor bug fixes. The latest intel adds a wrinkle to that theory. Supposedly, it will also include a UI overhaul for the phone dialer. Supposedly, this new dialer was spotted on a Nexus 5 that is owned by a Googler. Here's a quote with a brief description to go with the pic you see above,

    The Android 4.4.3 Dialer app features a series of cards for each contact instead of a list. The cards have a colored background with the first initial of the name placed on them, but they can apparently also show a picture of the contact when one is assigned to it. Other elements in the screenshot include the top search bar and the bottom blue action bar.
    We have to admit, here at HQ we like what we see. The phone dialer on the Nexus 5 isn't bad, but these new "upgrades" could be a marked improvement. What do you think?

    There's no clue as to when this update will hit devices, but we are expecting it very soon.

    I never thought about a dialer replacement. I like the concept.

    That dialer, as it is shown, is pretty hideous. If that comes to be the future installed norm, I'll be forced to go for a custom dialer from someone.

    ^^. Yeah. I'm on the fence a bit. There are parts of it I like, while others I don't. I am not sure I agree that it is hideous, but I can see why you say that. I would need to see it in use before I pass judgment.
