My contacts hit the +300 entries and it is close to impossible to be fast using the chars-pattern on the bottom, neither is the search function that a good to use.

If you want to stick to the chars-pattern make it expand between letters and not by row so you can have the next letter below the expanded and not have to scroll back up to get to the next letter.

I also think the filtering of contacts should be tweaked a bit. I was scanning my contacts in search of "duplicates" coming from different services to merge, and when at the bottom of, let's say, the L list, I had to scroll up a lot to select the next letter.

@Orologiaio How useful it would be to have, instead, some kind of an automatic "search for dupes" function.

Problem is, some people have real name on facebook, nickname on gtalk, another nickname on twitter etc. so while this would surely help, it wouldn't solve all issues.

what do you mean by recent? For me the People app should start with the search bar and the keyboard actif. The pads with letters like windows phone is not easy to use once the number of contacts is great. I have also more than 200 and it is a pain to scroll.

Personally I think N9 had it pretty right: normal list, but you were able to jump the list with a 'scrollbar' on the right where letters from A-Z (or just first contact to last contact?) were available. As far as I can see, though, that widget doesn't exist in Jolla.

Add a first characters side bar(like something inthe app Daedalus),so we can scroll faster.
