Need a way to easily access that select group of contacts you converse with frequently without manually creating groups? Well, the same star action that's used in Gmail to flag important correspondence now appears in Google Contacts. Those folks you affix the gold mark to will be added to the "Starred" group for easy access. Android users' selections will also sync with Android Contacts to stay organized across desktop and mobile. Of course, you can also use Google+ circles as another organizational alternative.
You can now star Google Contacts, just like important messages in Gmail
