I moved to a new gmail account. I have set it up on my Samsung S6. However, now when searching through text messages or contacts email addresses are being show next to the contact name. I have tried everything from unsyncing, restarting phone, removing the new gmail account and setting it back up. I have display only phone contacts which does not work since I have everything saved under the gmail. It is very annoying to see email addresses next to contact names when you're sending text. In general it is very annoying to see email address next to the persons name even under contacts. Any help is appreciated


I finally broke down and deleted the contacts that showed email addresses next to the contact name. Re-entered that contact and saved again and that fixed the problem. Not sure why, only after syncing the new gmail, it showed that way.
