    I have just recently noticed that there are two sync setting that seem to overlap in terms of description - "contacts" & "people details".

    The first is self explanatory but the second isn't so clear - does anyone know what this is? I could hazard a guess myself but that would just be guessing.

    Thanks.

    One may be from your phone manufacturer and not part of stock Android.

    Thanks. I'm using CM 10 on both my tablet and phone. The extra option appears on the tablet and not the phone. It is obviously a service that Google provides because it has to sync somewhere with something - so it can't really just be an extra feature plastered on top of a stock ROM.

    Thanks.

    I only have "contacts" in my stock Nexus JB. "People" may have been added. Someone the other day with either a stock Samsung or LG phone also mentioned having both.

    It is stock meaning you have not installed a custom ROM. However, it is not "virgin" Android. Manufacturers and cell carriers are known to customize Android for their own purposes. Nexus devices sold through the Google Play Store do not contain any additional customization.

    Well it seems to exists only in tablet mode on two identical ROMs - CM 10.0.

    From what I understand, People Details is a new sync service related to the upcoming release of Google Play Games.

    Ran across this tonight. I think this relates to people sync. Looks like it's related to Google +. Not surprising that Google is trying to tie everything together.
