    As of now, once you see person's name, you click and then have choice of text messaging Or phoning, and then you click that choice. I know you can set a speed dial by assigning number to a name, but I rather see a name and click once and phone connect.

    That seems to be a solution. You can create the shortcut by installing one of the widget options within contacts.

    Swipe the name. Swiping right to left opens the messaging app directly to that person, and left to right places a call.

    It's actually funny that Samsung doesn't advertise this anymore. This has been a standard Samsung feature since the first Galaxy S.

    I've been using a widget called Better Direct Dial for a while for the 8 or 9 people I call most often. Just tap the person's photo on a home screen and it dials.
