    I've experienced the same, but am not sure what the cause is. I always just assumed that it was because the contacts were being synched from different accounts (Google, Yahoo, AOL, etc, etc) but I could be wrong. But yes, like you, I see some that are blue, green, and yellow / orange...

    Nothing in the manual about it, and I haven't been able to determine any type of pattern with the colors. I think it's totally random to break up the monotony of the contacts list or something.

    Yup, that's what I think too.

    Yep, especially as you're scrolling through, the different colors help your eyes track what's going on.

    Twould be nice if they gave you an option to change colors (or color code by which groups people belong to). Guess you can sort of do that by manually associating a pic with each contact, but most of us don't have color-coded neutral pics handy.

    I for some reason want to think the colors are associated with a contact based on how much you contact that person (text,call or email)

    I can't add a contact photo to the brown-ish ones. I don't know what everyone has, but the ones I do know have iphones. So I can't add pics for iPhone contacts, it seems..

    The varying colors of the contacts is not random on my phone (Galaxy S5).
    Each time I add a contact it selects the next color in the sequence...
    Blue, Green, Orange, Orange
    Blue, Green, Orange, Orange...

    It just looks untidy in the Contacts list, and I see no way of changing it - apart from adding a contact a few times until it's the color you want, and deleting the unwanted ones. You could also create some simple color pictures to assign to each profile picture (if you don't have their photo)
