How To Delete Duplicate Contacts On Android Phone

Yesterday I was in a hurry to call my friend! When I open contacts in my Lenovo P780 I found that my friend contact has been saved f**king four times. It’s not my fault that I save his number four times. This happens due to contact import and export sometime sync contacts from Facebook or blah blah. May be whatever the reason the problem was big as there were more duplicate contacts like this and my contacts was like a mess. The worst scenario is you may be frustrated to find a contact if failed to remember his/her proper name to put in the search option. I think I am not the only one who have faced this problem.
