PLEASE STOP MAKING 16GB INTERNAL DEVICES
I don't care who's market you're aiming for; the 16gb-device has sailed. It feels too incremental. Remember, Google Photo's whole marketing schpeal is iPhone's "I'm sorry you're out of storage" [rage quit].
No one, at this day and age, can survive with a 16gb. Let alone, 32gb internal memory too. Apps are getting larger and you can't transfer all apps to SD cards, even if it's up to 256gb large.
Sony you got to raise that internal memory bar to that 128gb or higher.
It's like the PS Vita and the Sony Xperia Play devices, barely useable today, because of it's internal memory "at the time" minimum requirement standard was not high enough. Also, PS Vita using expensive proprietary Sony-SDcards.
Update: Sure I understand that there sometimes is a market for it. like 2nd 3rd world country for L1 L2 phones. But you never made a PS Vita with a standard SDcard, up to 400gb would be nice.

I suggest Sony turn on the "write with any object" feature i.e. Pencil, Pen, etc. like they did with the Xperia Z Ultra. A revival of a software feature. It is a feature to compete with Samsung's Note S-Pen series. The Lenovo 300e Chromebook comes with so-called Enhanced Touch technology, meaning you can use everyday objects to interact with the screen.
This will work well for writing out math problems, as with a finger is not precise nor enough space for even a large screen to jot down. You need that Khan Academy style. Also for Asian markets that use script languages. American with Snapchat!
There has been a phablet void for me for too long. Xperia Z Ultra was amazing! After the Xperia Z Ultra (Google Edition) all they had to do was add a flash to be a successful line. T2 Ultra, T3 Ultra, C5 Ultra, XA Ultra were all too low specs. If Sony kept the Xperia Z Ultra in 2013 and just worked on the body screen ratio, bit-by-bit, taking out the bezels, we would have reached 2018 bezel-less phablet much earlier. It was the Japanese Sharp AQUOS Crystal that jumps started bezel-less. That's all in the past now and we're at the XA2 Ultra and XZ2 status!
The Xperia C5 Ultra had "glove mode." Yet, you took it out in the Xperia XA1 Ultra. Thank you for adding Glove Mode back for the XZ2, but I really think it shouldn't be a flagship feature because the T2 Ultra and C5 Ultra had them.

Repurpose and re-brandmarket Sony small apps as "2nd screen"
I would like small apps to come back and screen record. Perhaps it can come back as a re-naming and marketing strategy swipe through app sets while in multi task, and maybe implement to use them in the lock screen section. It would just be a swipe a way to get to a flashlight, calculator, or miss called list.
HTC U Ultra vs LG V20

Sony Xperia Eye Tripod
I want to buy this mini tripod.
The hand-held mini tripod from the Sony Xperia Eye shown at MWC 2016.
Looks so lightweight and folds well to a poll for a vlogger angle. I've seen a version of this around but has this weird ball on the top.

The new Walkman and NW-WM1A (in black) and NW-WM1Z (in Gold) encased in an acrylic box at CES 2017 has a visualizer.
It would be nice to add a visualizer to the Sony Music (previously Walkman)

LTE icon in Quick Settings
I would like the LTE icon to always be available across all the Xperias, a standard toggle to turn on and off the LTE network. Some phones have this features, on some phones they are taken out. It's quite inconsistent.
There are mainly some situations why users need it:
My friend's Samsung doesn't have an icon and that's the one thing he hates about Samsung, which can be taken as Sony's advantage.
Update via Xperia X10 Plus:
LTE is back on the Xperia 10 Plus and varient series.
However disabling LTE now means just only LTE Data (vs LTE Calling, what it use to mean). However isn't that a bit redudent to have a Mobile Data icon too?
