When I pull down calendar to see day of week the line starts from Sunday. So f.ex. today is Saturday, 1 Feb, shown as sixth day in row but column is marked as Friday.

UPDATE thanks to stezz, looks like this problem is linked to timezone. I've changed it to Finland and now it looks ok even in Russian locale after reboot. But then I've changed timezone back to Russia, Moscow and get DoW starting from Sunday. Can you take a look at this?

can you post a screenshot and in what language you are using the device? For me the week starts at Monday so this might be a localization issue. I assume you are using are you?

You're point me to another idea about this bug!

@Wickedsten we will certainly look at the issue as long as you can describe exactly the steps to get to the problem. I would need to know:

Preconditions (if any) Steps to reproduce Expected result (Week start on Monday) Actual result (week start on Sunday)

For now it looks like this:

Steps to reproduce:

  • Set timezone to Finland.
  • Check days of week by pulling down in calendar app. (Actual result: days are started from monday)
  • Change timezone to Russia, Moscow
  • Check days of week by pulling down in calendar app

Expected result: days are starting from Monday, and days of week and days of month are correct.

Actual result: week starts from Sunday and DoW is shifted 1 day backwards against actual.

Is there a list or table of which countries / regions have which day/date formats?

ie 1st day of the week is Sunday, date format: ddd, DD, mmm, yyyy?
