Why we don't have some options of other brands on my Sony Phone? Suggestion!

Hello
I was a suggestion and prefer to share with this forums.(my device is Sony Xperia Z3 dual android 6.0.1)
It could be better if it did not have two weaknesses that the Android System has in its settings:

1. It could be excellent if it had an individual sound notification option for the contacts, Like Samsung Android in which you can choose an SMS sound for every one in addition to separate ringtone.

2. Unfortunately, adjusting the notification and SMS volume is depending on the ringtone volume, it could be better if it was separated like Samsung which is excellent.

Sincerely yours....

1, contacts, click on contact, click top right 3 dots, select "set ringtone"
2. Each to their own, I prefer unified notifications so when I turn down volume going into a meeting or cinema etc, I don't then annoy everyone by forgetting to turn down messaging volume.

Hey, Dear viridis!
First; it doesn't apply on sms notification sound of its contact!
And second; it's a weakness at least for a simple reason: my sms is more important than my calls or calls more than sms. Anyway it's a lack of options!

The great thing about an smartphone, is that you can download apps as you please to customize the phone, as for the separate notification volume for calls and messages, I agree with @viridis, but again, you can send your feedback directly to Sony >>> Local support
