Why does your new XA2 Ultra doesn't support immersive mode ?
Forcing immersive mode and light of the sreen result to a coma. The only way is hard reboot, the normal reboot result to a bootloop.
Why do I could die for an immersive mode ?
Because the navbar is insanely tick ! 1cm lost in the bottom of the screen ! When you buy this type of screen size, it is in order to enjoy it fully ! !
Why you let the ugly stock kernel 8.0 pop notifications during immersive moment (video, games...) ? 3CM OF ANOYING POPUP ! I just show it to a friend and he just can't belive that. Why ? Because other companies release updates to fix Google stuppidities !
(yes, between Oreo dev launch and official release, Google just remove so many feature that just make ppl angry, and to buy a stock kernel based phone became a non-sense for the first (?) time in Android history)
So... since the Dday launch of this smartphone, I'm feeling that I have a huge screen that is not totaly usefull.
I'm waiting an update that will fix/make it compatible with third apk immersive mode.
If you are in the same case, please leave a comment for Sony, hope things will change I beg you Sony devs to do something please.
Or if you found a solution, please share it

Because we lose 1cm with this ugly navbar !
Samsung one's, for exemple is 1/3 tinnier, and have the possibility of minimise it.

I solve a part of the problem, about immersive mode.
First of all, "Custom navigation bar" apk was crashing the phone in coma in immersive mode.
You have to let active in the immersive mode the notification bar, only navbar has to be disabled... And it works as a charm !
Rest the ugly popup you got each time a sms is received...

For my xa2 ultra, I use the GMD apk, you can do what you want for every apk, active or not the status bar and/or navigation bar, just perfect for a total immersive mode.

For games, you have Game mode in Xperia Actions to prevent notifications to appear. Something is something...
