Samsung Galaxy S6 Only display contacts stored in Google account

On the Samsung Galaxy S6 there are various ways to store and to display contacts . Contacts can be either saved in Google Account, Samsung account, Sim card, device memory and be stored even when using special apps elsewhere.

So the probability is very high that contacts are displayed twice, because you have them stored in two different locations. It is possible that contacts are secured on the SIM card and on the Google Account. The contacts app on the Samsung Galaxy S6 defaults to both.

In order to view contacts from only one source, you must set the appropriate settings in Android:

Here we show how to display only the contacts of the Google account on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

For this, please open on the Samsung Galaxy S6 the menu and then the Contacts app. In this select in the overview of your contacts at the upper right corner the button "More". A window will appear where the "Settings" entry must be tapped now.

In the next sub-menu, please tap the menu item "Contacts to display". You can now select from which location the contacts should be displayed in the contacts list. For the Google Contacts highlight your Gmail address.

Immediately only contacts from your Google account are displayed in the contacts app on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

If you carn't find contacts to display on your s6, you probably have easy mode turned on. Go back to standard mode or on the easy mode screen turn off easy mode for email.

This seems to work until you search and then it draws from multiple sources. Is there any way to get rid of all the other contact sources?

No such menu item called "Contacts to display."
