Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Add a New Contact in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Contacts app is a pre-installed app in Samsung Galaxy S5 that can be used to manage all of your contacts. When you have added a contact to your contacts list, you can easily make a call or send a message to the contact without you have to worry about forgetting the number or using a wrong number. The contact's information that you have entered will also be used by other apps, for instance the stock Messaging app will display the contact's name in incoming messages so that you can easily know who has sent the messages.

How to add a new contact?
There are some methods that can be used to create a new contact. This time, we'll try adding a new contact by using four different methods: from the Contacts app, from the keypad, from the call logs and from the Messaging app.
