How To Set Favorite Contacts On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus

Posted by Desmond Andrada on February 28, 2019

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus have many amazing features, but one of the most convenient features is that you are able to “Favorite” or star a contact to help find their information a lot faster, rather than needing to scroll through your entire list of contacts. If you have a particularly long contacts list, then it can get pretty tedious always needing to scroll through the entire thing, especially if you only regularly contact a handful of people. But if you favorite a contact, then there is no longer a need to go through the long list of your contacts to try to find a select few on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus.

Thanks to this feature, you can now be more efficient when you create and use your favorites. In this article, we will explain how to create favorites on the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus below.

Starring Your Favorite Contacts On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus

  1. Start by making sure your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 is turned on.
  2. Then find the Phone app.
  3. Once on the app locate the Contacts section.
  4. Tap on a particular contact.
  5. Select More Info (letter “i” in a circle).
  6. Tap the star symbol next to the contact’s name to add or remove that contact from your favorites.

Unfortunately, you can’t specify the order in which your favorites are listed. You can’t set it up so that your most favorite contact is always at the top. Instead, your favorites will be ordered in alphabetical order on your Galaxy device.

And if you want to remove someone from your favorites, then you can uncheck the star of a person by going back into your contacts list and finding that person. For a more extreme measure, you can just delete the contact if you don’t want them on your favorites list, but that seems a little over the top and is arguably more difficult than just tapping the star icon again.
