Why does Google Contacts start Hangouts instead of the phone dialer?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 android phone. When I use Google Contacts and pick a contact and then click on that phone number Contacts starts Hangouts instead of starting the phone dialer. If I disable Hangouts then Contacts starts Play Store /Hangout so that I can install Hangouts. I would like Contacts to start the phone dialer like it used to. Do you have any help for my problem?

Go to Settings > Application Manager > Hangouts > Clear defaults. Hope that helps!
