Re: Android 7. No Cyrillic alphabet on the dialer buttons.

Hi @No_in_streams, welcome to our forum and I understand your frustration. Slightly frowning Face

I have forwarded the information from the other users and I will gladly forward it for you as well as I understand that it is very convenient to able to search contacts using the Cyrillic alphabet directly in the dialer.

If you find a dialer that you are happy with and would recommend to the other users in this thread, feel free to leave a link to it! Slightly smiling Face

Re: Android 7. No Cyrillic alphabet on the dialer buttons.

Sony, not having cirillix caractets is a shame and a big step back. Now im not able to search directly thrue phone book because names in there are in cirillic. This is not the first time that we loose this feature after sw update. How hard is to implement cirilic letters in dile pad, SONY???? I used to thing you can do everything. May be i,ll also switch to samsung next time. I hate you

Re: Android 7. No Cyrillic alphabet on the dialer buttons.

Hi @Romanbg, I'm sorry to hear that you hate us. Slightly frowning Face

The information that I have available regarding this is because because the function “Smart search” was removed for the Cyrillic alphabet in the Android 7.0 update.

I'll make sure to forward your thoughts on this internally as user feedback!

What happens when you install a dialer app from play store?

Does that have Cyrillic alphabet?

Re: Android 7. No Cyrillic alphabet on the dialer buttons.

Hi @k3142978, welcome to our forum!

If you take a look at my previous posts in this thread, this feature has been removed for non-Latin alphabets in the Android 7.0 update.

You can of course try downloading a different dialer application, as @Strampke suggested!

Goto keyboard & languages, add Russian or other desired language as primary language and you're done.Screenshot_20190104-203547.png
