While all Android devices come with caller id option, you can only see the name for the number saved in your contact list. Nowadays we receive many spam calls and marketing calls. So, it becomes hard to identify if the call is from the genuine caller or just a time waste. To avoid this kind of time waste calls, caller id apps become useful.
There are several apps in Google Play that helps you in identifying unknown caller. Few of these apps automatically blocks calls from known spam callers and helps you in quietly avoiding spam callers. In this post, I am listing top 5 caller id apps for Android.
