Now mind you, there are very few things I miss about my HTC. Love my S4. But that was a nice feature.
On my Sprint S4, I can go to the contacts application, and on the contacts tab, if I click the menu, I can choose "contacts to display" and that lets me pick which address book to display (and I can uncheck the google account there) - and once I do that, the google contacts don't show up in the mail app either (have to clear the cache first though)

I thought that op didn't want the google contacts to even be available as an option on the phone.
