Calling someone or receiving a call is what we do on our phones most of the time. If you are calling someone you probably know the party on another side. But what if you are receiving a call from an unknown person? Would you be comfortable picking every single call from unknown persons? Most people don’t like such random calls. Truecaller App can tell you who is calling you but its blocking feature is not good at all. Which App can save you from lots of frustrating calls from telemarketers? Mr. Number is the App we would like to recommend you. How good is this app? We find in this review.
Mr. Number-Blocks calls and spams
There are many Apps on Google play store which claim to block calls but in reality, they don’t. Truecaller is good at displaying the name of the calling person or company but it doesn’t offer unknown call blocking feature. Yes, some OEMs include call blocking feature out of the box like MIUI, but most companies ignore it.
Mr. Number is beautifully crafted and simple app to help you block unknown calls. You get several options with many categories to choose from while setting blocking feature. You can choose block calls from Scam or frauds, suspected spam, hidden numbers, international numbers, Not in my contacts(numbers which you have not saved). Apart from this, you can manually add a number to the block list as well. Developed by Hiya this app also offers an option to see blocked call log so that you can contact a person whom you didn’t intend to block. If you lost a friend’s number and that friend called you, you don’t need to worry. You can glance through the call log and if you find out that you recognize the blocked call then you can always save it.
APP Size and updates
Unlike many communication-based apps, this app is tiny with a download size below 10 MB. Even after installation, it doesn’t take much space on your phone. Well, App is updated frequently to eliminate any bugs encountered. We didn’t face any bug while reviewing this APP.
This App does well what it is meant for. It blocks calls according to the block settings you have set and spams which other users report across the globe. The disappointing thing about the blocking feature is that the caller hears the busy tone. In MIUI, the blocked person just hears “not reachable”. This inability of not blocking a call without busy tone(he or she gets to know that you cut the call) may ruin your relationship with a person you personally know but blocked temporarily.
Apart from blocking option you also get caller ID and call log options. This allows you to check your call history within App itself. Well, Caller ID just makes your life easy by displaying the caller identity like Truecaller App.
This App is downloaded 10 million times and had a rating of 4.2 at the time of writing this review. Since this app is super easy to use we believe it deserves the better rating. This App impresses because it does its job well without consuming too much juice of the battery. If you are searching for a call blocking App then you should definitely try this App. We would like to know which App do you use for call blocking?
