New android tablet and having problems with Google Contacts

The tablet didn't come with a Contacts App included so I need to add one

First thought was Google Contacts which would do what I want including importing vcf files

Unfortunately I get the dreaded error "Unfortunately Contacts has stopped" and non of the suggested fixes from a Google Search sorts it

So now I need a free contacts app which will allow the import of multiple vcf files so that k-9 mail can pick them up

Any suggestions as to how I can get round it

Presume you have the updates and the latest version of firmware from the makers, then Google Developers may know the way forward? https://developers.google.com/

Android version is 6.0 and Kernal version is dated 10th Aug 2017 so I assume so

Regarding Google Developers - given the number of reports of this problem with this App on various platforms one assumes that they are aware of it and as it was only released in August year that somebody is working on it https://www.engadget.com/2017/08/14/google-contacts-for-any-android-phone/ although I wonder if it only works on phones and not tablet
