This question already has an answer here:
In Settings -> Accounts -> Google, when I tap on my Google account, I see a "Sync settings" page with a list of different Google services that can be synced (App Data, Calendar, Drive, Gmail, Google Play Books, etc.).
This list includes both "Contacts" and "People details." What is meant by "People details" and how does this differ from "Contacts?"
Are there any negative outcomes I would expect from disabling sync of "People details" (i.e. what would break?)
