How Duplicate Contacts are created on Android
This problem occurs while saving contacts on our Smartphone. As several people have two or number. So, while keeping their number, we create a new connection. Which creates a duplicate connection and creates a problem for us. It is confusing while calling someone as it shows several duplicate contacts at that time.
To solve this problem, I would recommend you to add a number while going to
contacts >> edit >> add the name. Don’t create a new connection for the same person with a different number.
