The Sony Z5 did that in the nineties already. What this is missing is
all the calls you get when the phone is off or you don't have
coverage, which depending on where you live may be the majority of
calls/voicemails you are interested in.

But don't get me wrong: A voicemail app that runs and records on the
phone is great. I've been missing that feature ever since.
