Still the same. Clearly Sony don't care about their customers and would rather us use Samsung. If anyone has found a solution other than waiting to use a different branded phone, please let us know. Cheers

Re: Xperia XZ1 got Android9 => Navigation bar?

Oh, really? This was introduced by Sony and is not an Android "Feature"?

 

This has been bugging me for a long time and just now I got around to looking into it. And it has been around for 10 months without a fix, even though standard Android would leave the choice to me, i.e. all UI elements and flows are available? I do not appreciate this at all and I am deeply annoyed by this ever present navigation bar. If I have Sony to thank for this, I shall look for a different Vendor. Did they at least give a reason why they would impose their view on their customers?

Re: Xperia XZ1 got Android9 => Navigation bar?

Seriously considering changing back to Samsung, the only apps I use have become frustrating to use or watch because of the bright white navi bar that cannot be adjusted. When you remove features it's not an upgrade or an update..... Please either fix it or give me the option to hide it, even if I have to manually hide and show it each time
