        Block Numbers Right From the Dialer in Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) and Up

        The easiest way to do this is to long-press the number in your call log, then select “Block number.”
        Screenshot_20160516-123752
        Jump into the dailer (or the “phone app” as it’s often referred to). Once there, tap the three-dot menu in the top-right (again, on Samsung phones it reads “more”).
        Screenshot_20160516-094553 Screenshot_20160516-094608
        Choose “Settings,” then the “Call blocking” option.
        Screenshot_20160516-094656 Screenshot_20160516-094742
        This is where you’ll add the numbers of callers you’d like to ignore. Simply tap the “Add number” or “Block list” option, and key in whatever the number is. You can also choose a contact here, assuming you’ve saved the number of the annoying caller.
        Screenshot_20160516-094753 Screenshot_20160516-094923
        When someone from this number calls you, the phone will auto-block it. No ringing, no notification. Nothing. This raises the question: if someone calls and the phone doesn’t ring, did they ever really call at all?

        Block Suspected Scammers and Spammers with Mr. Number

        If you’re looking for what’s arguably the smartest ways to block calls on your Android phone, look not further than Mr. Number. This is an incredibly full-featured app, but we’re just going to focus on its call-blocking capabilities. Once you get in on the block action, though, you should definitely explore the app a bit more. It’s neat.
        If you’re just looking to block all telemarketer or spam calls, Mr. Number can actually this automatically. It has three  types of auto-blocking: scam/fraud, suspected spam, and hidden numbers. Each of those categories can be toggled individually, too. It can also block individual numbers.
        To enable these features, the first thing you’ll need to do is (of course), install Mr. Number. I shouldn’t have to say that, but I’m doing it anyway. For completeness.
        Once the app is installed, open it and tap the overflow button in the top right corner, then select “Settings.”
        Screenshot_20160516-103735 Screenshot_20160516-103741
        In the Settings menu, there’s a section titled “Call Blocking.” That’s what you’re looking for. Tap the “Blocking Enabled” button. It may also read “Blocking Disabled” if you just installed the app.
        Screenshot_20160516-114926
        In this menu, you can choose to block specific numbers, or toggle the aforementioned categories. There are actually several automated options here: Scam or Fraud, Suspected Spam, Hidden numbers, International Numbers, and Not in my Contacts. You can control each of these as needed.
        Screenshot_20160516-114935
        Alternatively, you can just tap the “Numbers on my block list” option to add specific numbers. Just tap the plus sign in the bottom right to open the blocking menu. You can choose from a few different options: a number, a contact, numbers that begin with specific digits, or recent calls or texts. That’s crazy-granular control. You can block an entire area code if you want!
        Screenshot_20160516-1041311
        When someone on your block list tries to call (regardless of you entered the number manually or it’s part of the auto-blocking feature), the phone will ring for about half a second or so before Mr. Number can kick in. Once it does, however, it’ll send the caller to voicemail and leave a notification letting you know that it blocked a number. You can then tap the notification to read more information about the number, including comments left by other users as to what the nature of the call was. Neat, right?
        Screenshot_20160510-154845 Screenshot_20160509-151236

        Block Calls with Google Voice

        If you’re a Google Voice user, you have the ability to block calls from your Google Voice settings. Google Voice will play a message saying the number has been disconnected, so this may even fool telemarketers and other annoying callers into removing you from their spam lists.
        Just log in to your Google Voice account online, locate the recent caller you want to block, click the More link, and select Block caller.

It’s more cumbersome to clear all this in Android because it involves a lot of screen tapping.

        To do this you have to download the History Eraser. It’s a savior. Click on this play store link and install the app on your phone right now.

        How to Quickly Delete History/Logs on your Tecno Phone

        Once you launch the History Eraser application, you will see a number of check boxes that serve specific functions:

        How to Quickly Delete call History on your Tecno Phone

        It’s an extremely simple interface and shouldn’t take more than few seconds to get a hang of. The two icons at the bottom, on each side of the big Clean button, let you collapse the list and check/uncheck the boxes respectively.

        How to Quickly Delete call log on your Tecno Phone

        How to Quickly Delete History/Logs on your Tecno Phone

        There are 5 sections that delete different kinds of history:

        • Cache
        • History
        • Call Log
        • SMS/MMS
        • Others

        The Cache section will clear all apps cache at one go. Good to do when you are running out of space on your phone but if that’s not the case, you might want to uncheck this one and instead manually clear the cache of certain infrequently used apps through the Applications screen.

        The History section has Browser (default only), Google Play Search, Google Map Search, Gmail Search and Clipboard. If you ask me, I’ll probably just uncheck Gmail Search from this list and let others remain in the ‘delete’ list.

        The Call Log section will let you delete all your call history and/or only your incoming + missed call history and/or all your outgoing call history. Right below it is the SMS/MMS section that can help you clean up your messages.

        How to Quickly Delete History on your Tecno Phone

        Lastly, there’s the Others section that as YouTube and Search Shortcuts options. But both these cannot be deleted directly from the app’s interface.

        To delete Youtube search history, you’ll be taken to the Youtube app’s settings page where you can hit the Clear button. This is our only gripe with the application – but perhaps it is the Youtube app’s architecture that has to be blamed for this.
