    I have manually added all the contacts to my Phone. (so no contact transfer or sync)

    When I attempt to search for a contact using the Dial Pad -
    If I want to search for a contact named Yash, I would go to the phone's dial pad and press the following:

    This would present the results for all contacts that match the alphabet combination in that order. "Yash" in my case.

    Here's the problem I'm facing:
    For every search attempt, the phone would display two items of the exact same contact.

    1. Contact to display only has Phone selected
    2. All my contacts have only one phone number.
    3. Both the entries presented look exactly the same i.e. First and Last name, phone number and Contact Icon.
    4. I have disabled Contact synch for all other applications like Gmail, Outlook, Whatsapp, Skype, etc.

    Any solution to this would be greatly appreciated!

    Lots of "search algorithms" (in Phone, search bars, etc) want to search the most recently used list as well. Maybe that should be optional. My old Samsung works that way.
