Lollipop Dialer needs a face-lift! **Please Read**

I installed lollipop update on my Z3C and I was impressed by it! Everything have a fresh new look with the material design theme EXCEPT for one part of the phone, and that is the Dialer! The Dialer still has the same boring look for the past 2 years! To my surprise the pop up dialpad (which looks great) during the phone call and the lockscreen pin code screen both got a face-lift except for the main dialer. 

 

Can you please change the main dialer to match the look of the updated dialpad for the next update? I made a quick editing to give you a better idea

What do you guys think? Do you prefer Ver 1 and Ver 2 over the default look of the dialer?

I agree. Sony's dialer is ugly. Googles aosp stock dialer is much better.

Default dialer is also nice.

Anyway depends on the tastes of each Slightly smiling Face

I don't see the issue. You tap the numbers and hit call. The screen switches off when your on a call so what does it matter how it looks?

I prefer default. And like @mmuk says. It really doesn't matter. It would be like moaning about the transitions with flipping through the app draw. Who cares?

For some reason I feel the dialer looks out of place...I have seen other users on xperia blog complaining about it, to each his own taste :-) That true dialer looks too cluttered but nice though, I'll give it a shot
