PureContact is not a contact replacement app, but a simplification app. It is meant for those who like it simple and fast. If you have a phonebook loaded with contacts and you wish to keep a group of people separate from rest of the crowd.

Ready Contact List is another material design app which comes with an innovative and beautiful design to make your life simpler. The best feature is the one that allows you to just tap on an alphabet and rotate a dialer to go through all contacts starting from that alphabet. This is really cool.
Keeping all the features aside, the beautiful and refreshing design is in itself worthy enough for you to try it at least once.
Truedialer is not a contact management app, but a very good dialer which can make sure you won’t have to open you contacts app for any operation related to calling and messaging.
