    Welcome to Android Central! What category are the non-Google contacts on the phone? Are they Phone account contacts? Do they still correlate to contacts in your Google Contacts on the web?

    Also, do you have a lot of duplicates in your Google Contacts on the web? If so, it's possible your Contacts app on the phone automatically merged duplicate contacts.

    If you had Windows email accounts, Mac or iPhone etc. then those will show up. And Microsoft aggregates all my email.

    Most email clients and platforms will automatically add whoever you contact if you let it.

    Do you see contacts that you never heard of?

    In a company or organization and subscribe to lists?

    That size seems like a listserver or directory of sorts.

    A Facebook community. All the people you follow on Twitter.

    I get birthday reminders in my calendar app of people on Twitter and Instagram from ages ago.

    There are things the Gmail web portal can do to help organize contacts.

    On the Contacts app's main screen, tap the Menu button -- is there an option to select which contacts to display? If so, select that option and look at the groups that are offered. Is it only "All" and "Google"? There's nothing like "Phone" or "My Contacts"?

    Export your contacts.
    Save .vcf file in two places.

    Always good to export and save copies to local internal storage and Google Drive.

    I used Samsung Contacts app to import the.vcf file. From there export a new copy to S10 and to SIM card - though that only holds some, not all fields. Phone, email, name. Basics.

    Now have a copy in Samsung as well. And on your SIM card.

    Years ago I used 3rd party app beause I had a mess with duplicates and such. Outlook, Mac & iOS, Google.

    This might be challenging, but try toggling between All Contacts and Google contacts and see if you can identify a contact that disappears when you toggle to Google. See if that contact is on your Google Contacts website on your computer browser.

    should i delete existing contact before importing the new list?

    Export first. Twice to different locations.
    Then you can do what you want once you have backups.
    You can always import back.
    And there are various apps to merge etc but review them!

    I recently experienced this issue on my S10+ when switching between Contacts apps. The full list refused to sync. It got stuck halfway and despite repeated attempts to redo them on the device side, and seeing all of them in my Google account, the full list refused to sync.

    This is how I fixed it:

    Delete all contacts on your device
    Log in to your Google Account on a computer from your web browser.
    Open the Contacts page/app from top right menu
    Export your contact list to *.CSV
    Delete all of your contacts from your Google account
    Import the contact list back into Google Contacts by using the *.CSV you just made.
    Open your device and re-sync contacts

    Hope that helps!
