The Phone app has a "favorite" page (the title is a star) which contains the contacts you most frequently/recently(or whatever...) called:

The most important contacts page according to the Phone app

I find the contacts that appear there quite irrelevant and even dangerous (e.g. I recently blocked a contact and it still shows up there because said contact continuously called me)

My question is: how do I remove a contact from said page? The menu does not contain any option to remove them, moreover the contacts are not starred in the contact app.

    Hold the contact in the favorites page, drag & drop it on 'Remove'. – Gokul NC Jun 30 '17 at 13:01

  • @GokulNC Oh gosh... that interaction is really unexpected & it also feels really weird. Thank you anyway, please post an answer. – Bakuriu Jun 30 '17 at 16:31
  1. Hold the contact in the favorites page.
  2. Drag and drop it on Remove.

(This may vary for different phone apps. The method above works on AOSP stock phone app)
