Is there a better way to filter strings based on a list of varying conditions?

Currently I am using Condition under Control because it is allowing me to grow the list vertically and it has "contains" function built-in, which allows me to consolidate few conditions.


I tried using Switch, but if there are more than a handful of conditions, the horizontally scrolling of the list makes it almost impossible to navigate. 


Both options seem pretty limited and inefficient to filter a string through a list of conditions. Is there a better way available?

Can you explain a little more about your requirement?  As a general rule, if the connector that you are using allows it, you are much better of using an OData filter and filtering out the unwanted items before you get the results.  This makes the Flow faster and can eliminate many condition actions.
