    Okay,

    I had this problem with my G6 and lollipop and hoped Samsung/android would be better with a new G7 and marshmallow but it isn't.

    I want my contacts to be displayed and sorted last name first.

    They look good in contacts and also when I view contacts while texting but not from within creating email. When I view contacts from within email they are first name first.

    I'm using the native apps that come with android for all this.

    I have no idea of how to fix this, but it seems I'm doomed to have it this way. I'm pretty sure it wasn't like this with key lime pie but I no longer remember.

    Is there some way to fix the display order in email?

    Contacts>Settings>Display>Given name first. That's on a Note 2. I don't think they changed it.

    Note that the apps on Samsung are not those that are native to Android. Samsung made their own apps for their own phones.

    Thanks for that. Always thought these were "pass through" apps.
