Default Sync contacts with Google

Hi, Im trying to sync my google contatcs with my phone and there is no options in Accounts/google.
Only find one option, export my contacs in Gmail ino vcards and then import these cards with my phone.
Someone knows a solution for this?

Once you have set up your Google account(s), click on the account name(s) on the Google accounts screen in "Settings." This will bring up a window that gives you the option to Sync (or not) all aspects of your Google account (app data, browser, calender, contacts, drive, gmail, play books, play movies, play music, play newsstand, google+ and people details). If you want to sync, click the check box. Once you have that info clicked (or unclicked) you can run Sync by clicking on the 3 vertical dots in the bottom right hand corner in the Sync settings screen or one level up at the Google accounts screen. Good luck.

I already did this, but in this android version the contact sync does not appear, I took 2 screenshots and you can see my problem.

I'm not sure why contacts sync is missing under Google accounts on your phone. Like all users outside of China, I'm not running KK. Contact sync shows up on my Gmail account page (the types of sync are listed alphabetically and contacts, as you'd expect, shows up right under calendar). Maybe someone else has some ideas.

Yours is not a US version? I think the China versions does not come with Gapps. Only the playstore that can be sideloaded. I am from the original ham section and I flashed a China rom and that's what happened. There's no calender or contacts sync adapter installed.

They just need to install playstore and the rest of the gapps can be downloaded from there. But minus the contact sync.
