All my previous eSes had a call log with options to choose All calls, Missed calls, Dialed calls, Received calls, Rejected calls, etc.
My S9 has only 'Recents'. This is very strange. How recent does Samsung deem recent now?
It displays just calls I made. It's extremely important to me that I can see who called - at least a number and when.
Messages are equally inadequate. If I have the phone off or in airplane mode, when I turn it back on, the time that I turn it back on is displayed next to the messages - rather than when it was sent.
I think if you're on the recents tab and you tap on the 3 vertical dots in the upper right hand corner of the screen and select the option calls to show it will have the options your looking for. We can also select contacts individually and view our history of calls, messenges etc.
