2) Settings -> Contacts -> Default Account -> check if Google is chosen as default (NB! This step is optional and might not be visible in your device)
3) Phone app -> Contacts -> Groups (in the upper left corner) -> uncheck everything except "All Google"
To make sure Google is syncing with your OS X device, do the following:

Syncing Google Contacts with Android
While Android device differs, so long as your Google Contacts account is syncing with the native contacts app/address book built into your Android, we'll keep your FullContact account syncing with your Android through your Google Contacts.

What are Google's contact storage limits?
Google has three different storage limits for contacts, which are posted on a Google Apps Help Page. These limits for Google Apps accounts also appear to apply to normal Google accounts.
- The total number of contacts in a Google account must be 25,000 or less. Please Note: This includes Other Contacts as well as My Contacts. Read about Other Contacts vs. My Contacts here. FullContact only brings in My Contacts from Google, so it is possible that you may run into your storage limit in Google even if you have less than 25,000 total Google Contacts in FullContact. We have a helpful article here about organizing your Google Contacts.
- The total size of these contacts must not exceed 20 MB.
- Individual contacts must not exceed 128 KB in size.
If you want contacts in Other Contacts, Favorites, Google Circles, etc. to show up in FullContact, log into your Gmail account, click Google Contacts -> Other Contacts -> Select All (top) -> Add to My Contacts. After that, you will have successfully moved contacts into your My Contacts.
