Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4 and Note 3 has built-in call recording feature, but Samsung has not activated the feature for specific reasons. If call recording is legal in your country, you can easily enable the built-in feature by simply installing “Native Call Record” app on your Galaxy S5, Note 4 and Note 3(Lollipop), however your device must have root access.

Developed by the recognized XDA contributor dr.ketan, the “Native Call Record” app replaces “Add call (+)” button with “Record” button on the call screen. By simply pressing the record button the phone will record the phone call. A word of caution though, recording your own phone calls may not be legal in your country.
