    Unhappy iPhone 5 Spotlight search issue

    Hi everyone, this is my first post here and looking forward to know you all

    My iPhone 5 now is one month old. I am using spotlight search on every day to find my contacts, apps. This is the fastest way for me since I have a big list of contacts, apps etc...The strange thing is that this Spotlight search results window is getting shorter and shorter every time I use this search function!

    I have attached couple snapshots explains how the spotlight search results window look like in the beginning of my use, then after after using spotlight search for about three days. The only unpractical solution I found is just restarting the iPhone again and again to rest the view :-(

    Does anyone have noticed this issue? you might be an heavy-use user of this function to discover it...

    Thanks

    If you were to type the letter "A", your search field will be great but as your search becomes more specific, "Agnes's", for example, the search field will decrease. That is normal. If I misunderstood your post, I apologize.

    Thanks for your reply, you are right and know this thing, but this is not the case here...as you can see on the snapshots, I have put same word for search, but the gray area of the results are not the same!

    When you go to Settings-General-Spotlight search, is everything checked that you want included in a search?

    But are you actually getting fewer results, or is it just that the background is now shorter? From your screenshot it appears to have the same results, just a different appearance.
