It is not LG thing, It is KK to blame; Last update of KK (4.4.2) does ALWAYS default save location to "phone" It IS realy annoying !
you can choose google acc. from drop down menu when saving a new contact, but you have to do it so EVERY time you add new contact
P.S. And no, you have not lost your contacts: just go to settings in contacts app, then choose display contacts and select customize, then check google contacts and phone - voala

Add one more person who was wondering and getting annoyed with that... isn't it a bit strange that there's no setting to change the default contact location??

Anyway... is there a way to export contacts from the phone to Google? Say for example you're in a rush to add a bunch of contacts, can you somehow get them into your Google Contacts later on?

Guess I will try and add all contacts on a computer from now on.
