Samsung Galaxy S7 lets you flag scam, fraud calls |

The collaboration between the two companies means you'll have virtually complete knowledge and control of who's calling you and who can call you with the S7. Caller ID will tell you the who, even if they're not in your contacts, as well as if the number has been reported as fraud or spam. Naturally, you can report numbers as fraud or spam yourself.

All of this functionality is already available via the Whitepages app, which can be used with any phone, but to have it integrated by default is breaking new ground.
