Is there an alternate app for a dialer? (for instance, i'm using a second app rather than hangout for sms)

 

sometimes when you press the contact trying to call someone, it instead pops up the person's information or vice versa (when you want to edit, it instead dials the person) or you have to press twice in order to punch the numbers

 

it carries a bit of different functionality compared to the rest of android, and it bugs me a lot

 

 

how do you guys manage it?

Have not messed with a replacement myself.  But this is what came up when I searched the Play Store...

Not sure how you feel about it, but you could always run a custom ROM that has the AOSP stock dialer installed as its default. The Google Dialer is proprietary.

When I tried calling someone, it rang, but nothing was displayed on the screen. 

I've tried going under setting to customize it, but there were not such an option -how did you do this?
