1.1gb of my Sailfish X Ram keep occupied by the process "contactsd" It lasted for months, and it is quite distrubing as it makes my phone often run out of memory. Anyone know how to deal with this? Thank you!

I wish i could have the whole planet contact and speak with you talk for the whole day.

But sadly I don't, I think i only have several hundreds contacts, it is hard to see through the existing UI. I stopped to sync with email accounts long time ago.

Yeah, I kind of thought so. :)

However; you seem to have seriously bloated contactsd since if it really takes up more than a gigabyte of memory... Imagine if you had one million contacts then each of those would take a megabyte of space, you'd have a fairly high-resolution photo of each of your million contacts, along with the usual contact data!

Umm my contact list used from my Nokia N8, Iphone 4, Blackberry Z30 till now I didn't set photo for contact and duplicate contacts was deleted Shouldn't take that much space 😶

I'd export all contacts and check the file through with a text editor for any cruft from so many earlier migrations.
