    How to make Samsung S4 phone use Google contacts, instead of on device or SD card contacts?
    I have done many searches, and it is very frustrating as all seem to discuss how to synch contacts to google, but that's not what I am asking!
    And why do samsung have this setup to other android phones!?

    Hi

    On Samsung phones you can set which accounts are visible in the default contacts app - something like:

    contacts
    menu (within the app)
    settings
    contacts
    contacts to display

    Then when you create a new contact, choose the account you want it saved to. This account should "stick" as the default for further new contacts until/unless you change it.
