    New to Android, on a Sony Xperia X. Looking for advice on how best to synchronise contacts which are sitting on my Outlook.com account. I have the 'sync. contacts' setting activated but this seems flaky at best - sometimes showing contact names against text messages, for example, and sometimes not - also, presentation of contact card photos is very inconsistent.

    Is there a better way to get contacts into the Android contact app. (I assume that's what I need to be doing) or other ways that work well for synchronising contacts?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I have that account added, plus the email details added into the Outlook app. for Android.

    Works nicely actually, obviously it kind of becomes the primary place for editing and creating contacts - which is fine, but at least the synchronisation is working now. Thanks !
