I have a survey / intake form that has upwards of 50 questions that the user has to answer. All of these questions are usually filled in by the user, but they're not required to be. The sections are grouped into different groups for example

Group 1
 - question1
 ...
 - question6
Group 2
 - question1
 ...
 - question4
...
Group x
 - question1
 ...
 - question6

What are some good ways to display such a list of questions. My current thoughts are just in a full list and the user scrolls all the way down answering questions. Option 2 would be to have each parent Group come up one at a time and you swipe left / right (kind of like the classic Tinder swiping) to get to different groups.

Just looking for some input on the matter, been trying to think of a nice way to do this.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Since users are not required to answer all the questions I would split the groups into pages.

Each page will have interaction element like button with which user can go to the previous or next group. Make sure you also have an indicator element that tells in which group the user is currently in.

But since this is for mobile survey, you can use a single element like dropdown on top of the page in which list of groups will be displayed and the active group will be highlighted. I also would put the number of questions together with the group name.

Don't forget to label any question that is optional or required. I usually label the optional one when there are more required information that user needs to give in. (E.g. In contact form everything is required, except phone number).

Group X with list of questions which one of them is optional, dropdown for navigation

You've got a really nice reference on google forms (mobile and web). I would not recommend at all making a unique long page. Users needs to flow, and if they think the task is gonna be long and boring they could drop off.

Here are some tips:

4_Always locate the user on the progress of the survey. Maybe with %, maybe with pagination.

2_If you are gonna group, and you end with extra large groups, think about micro categories. (Music questions-country questions)

3_Look for good readability.

4_Add descriptions for each categories.

5_Make sure you mark those questions that need to be answered.

6_Check the tone of the survey, if it's kind of informal you could give encouraging phrases to the user.
