If you have migrated to the Samsung Galaxy S7, it may be that you have restored contacts from multiple sources and these are now available twice or more. This is the case, for example, if the contacts have been transferred from the SIM card, the Google account, the Samsung account, etc. to the Samsung Galaxy S7.

So that you do not have any duplicate contacts stored on the Samsung Galaxy S7, we now show you how you can combine the contacts and possibly different contact data.
