If you do not need the flexibility of dynamic fields, don’t use them.
Sounds to me that you really want a field “price” to be float and a field “birthdate”
to be of type date etc.
If so, simply create your schema (either manually, through Schema API or using schemaless)
up front and index each field as correct type without messing with field name prefixes.

fields are known at indexing time. We run a query on a database and we index what comes using
query variables as field names in solr. Our current solution: we use dynamic fields with prefix,
for example feature_i_*, the issue with that
