I noticed there are a few issues when scrolling through the contacts on the Mudita Pure. I can’t consistently replicate the problem, but you can sometimes observe contacts missing from the contacts list entirely when scrolling through it.
I hope everyone understands what I mean, because writing the issue out in detail is a bit hard
When you are in the contacts app, and you scroll from the top position to the bottom position, then you may normally see every contact that you ever added without any issue.
But if you are currently selecting the very first contact/position in the entire list and then press the up-key once (so that you end up directly moving to the last page in the contacts book and are selecting the very last contact/position in the list), and then scroll through the entire list in reverse from bottom to top, then it is possible for entire contacts to be skipped and not be displayed at all.
Scrolling from bottom to top changes the usual fixed position of your contacts because going from page 1 directly to the last page makes the last page “full” with contacts, without the last page having any empty rows. If the last page usually had empty rows when you were scrolling from top to bottom, then those empty rows will be filled in, which results in completely shifted positions of the contacts. The contacts on this phone are displayed in multiple pages and not in one dynamic list after all.
This issue of missing contacts may somehow happen when a contact is in a position, where it would be between two pages or so. This issue may also somehow be related to the alphabet letters using up one row of space, too.
A result of this “contact shift” is also, that some contacts will be displayed a second time on page 1 again, after scrolling past those same contacts on page 2 already.
Can the team look at this and fix the issues in a future update?
I would also be happy about the option to entirely disable the alphabet letters in the contact list, or have them disabled by default. If needed, you can see which letter you are currently at, by just looking at the names. It just doesn’t look right when there is one row with a letter, then after that you have only one contact, then comes another letter, then another single contact, then another letter, then another individual contact etc.
Another thing about those alphabet letters/sorting letters: Sometimes you have a letter on the bottom of a page, without any contact under it, because there is not enough space on the page to display the contact that would come next. But going to the next page displays the same alphabet letter a second time, which looks weird to me.
I think it would be more minimal and more aesthetic if the letters would be gone entirely. And maybe the phone book would look better organized when the last name would be positioned before the first name?
Thanks everyone. Maybe it would have been possible to write this out in fewer lines, but I guess my head doesn’t work right now
