Hasn't been updated in almost 2 years so I assume it's basically been abandoned. I set it as the default dialer on my S7 but it isn't recognized and incoming calls use my stock dialer. The search for businesses does work so i'll leave it installed just for that purpose, it's nice if you want to call someone and you're not sure what their number is, just don't be surprised if the caller id doesn't work.

Good Seems an overall decent and helpful app, as long as you don't mind Facebook collecting your call history usage. I haven't had any technical issues so far. More syncing options with your Contacts accounts would be nice. Full Review

This app has potential. Even though it is set as the default dialer on my Samsung Galaxy S6, my old dialer app is answering calls. This needs to be fixed. It would be simpler if Facebook would allow people to sync to Facebook contacts to their phone contacts like they used to. Full Review

Useless I set this to only show up for people NOT in my phonebook. Instead, it only functions for people already in my phonebook. I've tried all available settings to no avail. Who wants caller ID for people they already know? Full Review

Nice idea. Faulty execution Supposed to block spam calls. The rare case it does you get multiple notifications. No time saved dismissing those. Answer cards cannot be disabled and do not work with stock answer card. So there are two answer cards onscreen the user has to fight with. If they resolved the conflicts with the stock dialer and toned back the notifications then the rating would be a solid 4.5. Full Review

Does not block..especially scammers. Ok, so I had a scam "you won a free cruise" number I did not answer 2 weeks ago. I verified it was a scammer on the net, so I went to the phone number log and "blocked" it. Got the same scammers spiel today. What do you know? The number matches the blocked phone number that called 2 weeks ago. Can't tell if it is succefully blocking other numbers, but you can tell if it's not blocking. Full Review

I have used this app for a long time now with no problems. But since I started unchecking the box to save a contact 'on my device' , my Hello contacts have started disappearing mostly at random. It's bad enough now, that I can add a new contact today with a phone number and more, then tomorrow it won't be there. I am going to start checking the box again to 'save to device' to see if this works, but if you could look into this, it would be very helpful. Full Review

It's a decent calling application. I like the Facebook profile sync so you know who's calling you. Though it seems like that feature only actually happens one out of 20 callers. The one improvement I want is to not get notified at all that a blocked number has attempted to called me. It may be brief but it will still interrupt any music that's playing and my Moto360 still buzzes. Full Review

Asks me twice which dialer to use I place calls with both Hangouts Dialer and the Phone dialer. When using Hello's dialer I get asked twice which one I want to use which is incredibly annoying. Otherwise I enjoy the utility of this app. Just hope they fix this edge case. Full Review

Callerid great. The call log only has some incoming calls and barely any outgoing :( really frustrating it's not capturing all the #s especially for google voice google hangout users. Full Review
Cliff Bargar Published date: November 6, 2017
The caller ID is good but I'm incredibly disappointed in how poorly the "Automatically block calls from numbers that have been blocked by a lot of other people." feature has worked out. I get a fair amount of random calls from numbers that have a ton of reports when you google them but not a single one has been blocked by Hello. Update: downgraded to 1 star because the app is so inadequate Full Review
Chris B Published date: February 7, 2017
It's a decent app so far, but i can see two huge improvements: add a white/yellow pages directory (facebook information can be rather limited), and integrate messenger. If this could be done, I could easily knock out three or four of my other apps. I'll be keeping an eye on this one, but not something I'll keep just yet. Full Review

Great App Lifesaver I go through phones like the changing seasons so this app has saved my life saving the phone numbers I forgot to or lost Full Review

They might as well take this dang app down - it doesn't work right and hasn't been updated. Despite being a great concept.. The caller ID feature doesn't even work... Full Review
Alexis Miller Published date: August 23, 2015
I actually really like this. I often need to look up numbers and addresses on the go and this quickly finds pretty much all I've thrown at it. A few suggestions/requests : dark mode color scheme, ability to view texts recently sent to contact you're viewing (my stock caller and a few others I've tried can do this), the ability to choose which screen opens by default when app is launched.

Very basic and badly implemented Cannot assign speed dial to contacts. T9 search sucks. Only good thing is swipe to go to next screen. Needs a lot of improvement. Not Facebook quality. Full Review
Corey Duncan Published date: October 2, 2016
Great app but it is missing connectivity between apps--especially Facebook apps, which is weird. After updating contacts, linking Facebook pages and updating to my contacts full names, everything is awesome on Facebook Hello. However if you click to send sms, it will open up Facebook Messenger and it still shows the old information that you had just updated. Can't figure out how to sync it out of the Hello account, into phone wide. Otherwise I haven't tried the blocker but the id and search is amazing. Full Review

Nothing but Spyware Why does a dialer app need permission for your microphone and camera. The dialer doesn't work unless you give Facebook permission to spy on everything Full Review
Jack Hake Published date: November 10, 2016
Slow on 7.0+ After upgrading to 7.0 this app is pretty slow. Upon opening the app it will just show the app icon with a blue background for about 10 seconds then let you make calls. Full Review

Only works for known numbers... Kinda pointless Full Review

Lollipop Lookalike I love this app! If you have a non Nexus phone and want the Google style dialer, this does it. You can search for local business right from the dialer. Pulls all the info from their FB profile too. It's also free, so you got nothing to lose. Full Review
Sammy Presley Published date: February 21, 2017
This app does REJECT CALLS set to be Blocked to your Voicemail. If You go Into Your Phone's Call Forwarding settings and Just the line for Forward when busy then click turn off if you can then you wont receive anymore voicemails or ringing of your device by #'s on your devices Internal Reject List or by any 3rd party Call Blocker App you have installed. Blocked # Callers will get 3 rings then a busy signal always when they are blocked and cannot notify you via Call Waiting when Calling you if you are on a incomming call or a outgoing call just straight to the 3 rings then busy. by the way if you are on a incomming call or a outgoing call then someone calls you via call waiting that isnt blocked and you keep the caller on call waiting then anyone no matter what will get the 3 rings then busy signal because there is no way to change this. Only way you iknow a blocked number Tried to reach you is because their # and times tried calling you left in your devices Call Log which is easily deleted. Use Zoner Antivirus As Your Blocker of choice to block people not in your android contact instead of Hello if you want only contacts to contac t you. Full Review

Auto Switching my Location - RED CARD FLAG This app is invading my privacy. It is switching my Location on ahnd reactivating location on ust two seconds after I switch it off. Even Google does not do that. Also, I was unable to delete it from Accounts. I will uninstall it for these reasons. Full Review

Like really these our msome of my kids missing a couple, I'm proud of my kids and love each and every one Now I could have a mini picture of a 104 pound mom and hear comments like go eat a couple cheeses burgers I ate apple instead. So by putting there pic up I can sit back and listen to others judge others but remember this first take a long look in the mirror first beauty comes from within you can be pretty great bod but be the most empty person and ugly in the room judge yourself and behavior first does it give you the right to judge?

I hate the app it sucks I blocked several numbers the calls still come through Call blocker sucks Facebook has false app's also I see.I had to file a report with Google Full Review
David Font Published date: July 23, 2017
Kinda cool if you only call those you know. But, if you are calling a new number and just type it in, there is no way to call that number. You have to enter it in the EXACT place they want you to. Every other phone app I've used, anywhere you enter a phone number, it asks if you want to dial now. Not this app. Full Review

Lindolfo Meira Published date: August 24, 2016
The app's kind of okay, but it shows some huge, weird phone numbers for my Facebook contacts, even if they're not sharing any phone info on their profiles. Calls from blocked numbers give a couple of rings and then are silenced, but you still get a notification of the call. Kinda stupid. Full Review

Really good app, it does what it says. Most people nowadays use Facebook so most contacts have a FB profile connected to it. The card is fast to load and gives all the info about the person contacting you. Full Review
