Call recording is a feature that some phones have and some phones do not have. There’s always a big fight when it comes to call recording.
Some say that it is illegal and no conversation should be recorded and some say that it is allowed.
On most countries, call recording is allowed. Even though it is allowed, most of smartphone manufacturers do not include it.
Well, some of them include call recording as a feature on the phone app but for some reason, they disable it.

The feature is found inside the CallRecording.apk file and can be enabled by flashing a zip file. If your country allows it, here’s the guide how to enable it on your phone.
