Anonymous, 03 Mar 2018I agree. Fortunately, manufacturers like Huawei and Xiaomi offer thatEven Samsung
Unfortunately, this is just another feature missing from "stock" Android (and there are many).
My Mate 8 had call blocking, as does the Mate 9 (current phone). Even the Honour 6 Plus I owned a few years ago had it.
It's not exactly "revolutionary", but is very useful, for those dreaded telesales calls...
Come on, just introduce ANDROID P as ANDROID :P, with a bunch of trolls when u keep pressing the ANDROID version, isn't this more exciting (Maybe? XD)
My Huawei Mate 9 already has this.. And is very effective too.

Here we are back to the Basics. Android needs to die. We need a resource efficient OS for smartphones..

Pizzas are my belief, Pizzas are my everything, a world without Pizzas does not have light, a life without Pizzas is incomplete!
AnonD-549077, 03 Mar 2018Samsung had this ages ago. I knew this inbuilt feature since Samsung marshmallow editionSo does my carrier, MetroPCS. I also have a Samsung but they still get through a double layer. At least it lets me know not to pick up.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2018great, I am still stuck at Marshmallow...But Marshmallow isn't bad. It is smooth. Nougat and Oreo are smooth too. Lollipop was much worse.
MIUI also have this feature..

KMB877, 03 Mar 2018Can't see any big deal here. The playstore has dozens of various call blockers.The BIG problem is that android limits the apps ability(unlike android 4) - it will not block stuff unless it is the default app, rendering some very good ones useless..
While I welcome this feature because it should have been standard ages ago, just look at the fact that everyone everywhere will try to make money off of anything!!! Freaking leeches!!!
"This could be enabled by the carrier's discretion" just angers me even more because carriers are nothing more than money hungry leeches gathering millions if not billions and not rolling out good service coverage despite the big consumer demand. I hate the fact that everything takes its sweet sweet time always not to the benefit of the consumer only to the big CEO board pockets & bank accounts.
Never buy phones from carriers, never succumb to age-long term & condition contracts because they are all designed to trap you and get the most money out of you.
Just buy a phone from a local phone shop or online and just get a pay as you go plan - it's the best decision you can do which will save you headaches in the long run.
