    Welcome. I believe that was a Moto UI widget, looks like Samsung has one called "Favorite Contacts" it is a 4x6 widget. Could put that on a secondary screen, or re-size.

    Interesting, must be a carrier specific thing? None on my VZW S4.

    Ah I am sorry, I didn't realize that was a Nova Launcher widget. I just went to my Touchwize home launcher and saw it is not there. Sorry OP, looks like Samsung does not have the same feature.

    Nova Launcher does though. :)

    Great launcher, faster than touchwiz, imo.

    I am with you. Came from Bionic, then MAXX HD and liked the favorite widget. I am currently using several 1x1 direct contacts on a page, which does virtually the same, but not quite as nice. There are some widgets on the Play Store, but haven't tried them yet and some are paid. I have played around with the Nova Launcher and there is a one, as Sydman said. It does not do the pull-down, to show numerous other contacts, like Moto's.

    I agree. The pull down was convenient. And having my top 4 was awesome as well. I'm doing the same thing with the 1x1... :-(

    I have retrieved the Favorites.apk from my Droid RAZR and it worked fine on my RAZR HD and now on my Xperia Z.

    I have uploaded the APK here:

    I hope it will work for you as well!

    There is an app in play store called contacts +. It has a few similar "favorites" widgets. I really don't use it. (Not enough friends :-( lol) but I like a lot of the other features of the app.
    Hope this helps.
