Description

App version: alpha-2016-02-12 on Samsung GT-I8190 (Galaxy S3 mini)

When there is a link to a non-existing page, the link is shown in blue as if the page would exist. When clicking on that link, you get a 404 notification, see screenshots:

On https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Versteckte_Kamera_(Begriffsklärung) the link to https://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Die_Versteckte_Kamera&action=edit&redlink=1 is blue

This is what you get when you click on that link

As a comparison, this is how it looks in the normal browser.
