    I have got Nokia 5 with Nougot 7.1.1. The system is very fast but only thing getting on my nerves is everytime I search for contacts, its showing double the times. Even though I have selected customize view for the same.
    Also, please help me to save my contacts on my device not on Google.
    The only option in save is "Google account"

    Thanks in advance.

    Saving on Google Account saves to both device and is backed up to Google. If you make it to not save contacts to Google, in the event your device suffers an accident, contacts may be lost and irrecoverable. Saving to Google means that if you buy a new phone and sign in your Google account, the contacts from the old phone are automatically downloaded.

    As for the duplicates, do you know where the duplicates reside? Normally they appear because you have it saved on the phone on multiple locations (i.e. SIM, a second account etc).

    I also got the N5 over the weekend and yesterday I also observed this. It doubled my Google/Phone contacts and that of those with WhatsApp.

    I forgot to mention in my previous reply.

    Open the contacts app>menu>settings>merge duplicate contacts.

    There should also be an option to only view one set of contacts; phone, SIM, Google, etc. I personally have not had good results from merging duplicates.

    Thanks for all the help but I just decided to delete the whatsapp contacts, now the whatsapp option is integrated with the google contact (as displayed). Thanks.
