Why some double entries.

Specs: Linux , 2.2GHz/6GB
This is on an S5 phone.

In my "Contacts" everything is fine with no doubles. If I go to either the email or message app
and open the contacts from there I see 7 contacts (out of 135) with double entries. These are
old ones by the images I see on them. Also they only have email addys on them with no phone numbers.

I have no synching turned on what so ever. I cleaned out the cache on email and messaging.
I have had the same entries for awhile and this just came up recently.
One other thing. I share these same contacts with my Tab4 and don't have this problem on it

Duplicates may be on the SIM card as well as in the phone's built-in storage.
So your phone is showing you all the contacts in both locations.

I quit using the sim for contacts long ago and I have it set to use "Device".

After working on this for a few hours last night I think it is fixed.

I did so many thing I really can't say what actually corrected the problem.

I did use the "manage duplicate contacts" with some deletions and imports I thought I posted back early this mornin but it didn't show up. Here it is:
