Android can do that without an app, but you have to add the number to your address book.

Here's what I do: after I get a spam call, go to the call log > tap once on the caller to be blocked > tap on Create Contact > I give the entry a name of "Spammer ???" where ??? is the area code of the caller > open the new contact from the address book (the previous step may open the entry already, depending on which version you have) > select a property called "Add to reject list" (the location of this setting varies, but it's somewhere within the contact entry) > save and close the contact

I just checked my phone, and I have close to 50 Spammer entries.

I cannot find this option in my phone
Did you add the number to the phone's address book?

In my previous phone, the Reject option appeared when tapping on the entry in the address book. A menu popped up with the Reject option, but the entry itself did not open.

In my current phone, I have to open the address book entry first. Then there is a "properties" icon at the top that drops down a menu, which has the Reject option within it.

In your situation, you need to install third party app to do the call blockings.

Security & Power Booster -free from McAfee (Intel Security) is one of such apps.

The drawback is most of such apps is not free and you need to pay for annual subscription if you want to continue the protection after the trial.
