When the user is creating a contact, or editing an existing one, they will observe the multiple fields that exist along the page. When the user taps the '+' sign, they will add a field row, according to the text of the row that was tapped. If the user taps anywhere on the bar, they will also observe that the field will create a new row. This is disorienting to a user as they may be trying to scroll through creating a contact and tap the bars to create new fields accidentally. When removing a field as well, the user is encouraged to tap the 'x' button to remove said field. However, they may tap in any space underneath the 'x' button as well to remove it from the contact. This is most noteable in the 'Address' field as there is a large amount of blank space a user may accidentally tap.

Repro Steps:
1) Update a Flame to 20150217074222
2) Open the 'Contacts' app.
3) Tap the '+' to create a new contact.
4) Tap the bar of a field to the right of the text "Add Phone/Email/Address".
5) On an existing field, tap under the 'x' to remove the field.

User may remove and add fields from editing a contact without tapping the associated buttons.

User may tap the '+' and 'x' buttons to add and remove fields from an in-progress contact respectively.

I think we need some UX input here.

Actually I think this is the way how the engineer implement the function. I'm fine with either making it tappable only on the buttons or just keeping it as current behavior. ni? Jose for some rationale behind the scene. Thanks!

It can be possible to restrict the clickable area only to the '+' or 'x' buttons but I would not recommend it, as it would be a really small target. As a result we would need to make the clickable area bigger than the button dimensions. On the other hand, the likelihood of generating a click while scrolling is certainly low IMHO.

I do agree with comment 3, Carrie should we close it as worksforme?

Sure. we may fix this in the future with our new v3 design. Thanks!
