Spam calls can be very annoying especially if they come during the night or when you are busy. Spam calls could be in different forms: calls from telemarketers trying to sell you stuff that you don’t even need, automated calls from companies trying to advertise their products or internet service providers trying to lure you into purchasing their products.

If you are tired of spam calls blowing up your phone, there are several Android apps that will help you block all unwanted calls.
