Samsung S3 Slow Address Book
I have an S3 on Rogers in Canada. I have a 6,500 person address book for work. Each address record has notes. When I search someone's name (i.e. John Smith). it takes the phone 1.5 to 2 minutes to find it. It then brings up all records that mention John Smith. The problem is that the phone is searching not only each record, but the notes section of each record for the name I am calling up.
This is driving me crazy. 2 minutes seems like an eternity when you are looking to call someone. I am using the Gmail address book.
For the record, I also have a Blackberry Torch 9810 and an iPhone 4S with the same address book and name searches are lightening fast on the iphone and Blackberry.
Why does Android such so much in this department? Makes me want to get an iphone 5S. This flaw makes Android totally useless for business.

Re: Samsung S3 Slow Address Book
you do have an unusauly high amount of data in your contact list mate but as my man Smooth says, theres plenty alternatives.
i use Go Contacts which is really pretty etc and fast enough for me but i dont have as much of a detailed contact list as you and Go might acualy be a bit slower than stock.
you should have a good search for the ugliest, most light and functional dialer/contacts app mate and maybe try and strip down your contacts, merge duplicates etc (a really long mind numbing process lol)
good luck man
ps instead of using gmail to search the contact, try just the normal dialer and select email from there..

PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.
