Software Features request for XZ1

Some features requests that are missing and will for sure upgrade our user experience with Sony Xperia phones:

+ Ambient display with raise to wake (That's the most useful feature for a smartphone, we need to see our notifications without touching and unlocking it, while we are working or driving)

+Night mode or blue filter ( Come on sony take care of our eyes, that's really missing a lot too)

+Screen is a bit reddish (Would be nice to be more balanced, if that is possible with a software update and it's not hardware related)

+Improve touch responsiveness of the screen (delay while swiping is noticable)

+Ring and notifications volume is a bit low(would be nice if it could be raised a little)

+Camera tend to soften details (Pictures aren't sharp and that's pretty disappointing for a sony flagship of 2017, it would be nice if it can be fixed with a camera software update and it isn't hardware related)

+A swipe for feed in Xperia launcher (where we can have our calendar-weather-notes-to do-news widgets properly and nicely organised instead of Google now, or to able to choose one of them)

+persistent notifications to be removable or to be able to disable them from settings (like screen overlapping from  Facebook messenger, they are using space in notification panel without a reason)

+ Xperia Launcher folders (the window of an opened folder to be closer to the folder location and at bottom of the screen instead of those big windows in the middle, so we can reach apps easier with one hand (as Google does with pixel folders))

+Google keyboard app is opening after every restart (would be nice if it won't)

That would be really nice. The nightmode is missing. Also an way to backup the DRM Keys.

Re: Software Features request for XZ1

Haha, that's funny.

I want my device to keep quiet while I have put it aside.

- it is me who decides when to watch and when not to be disturbed.

- never watch your phone while driving


- I would like to have the phone in a state of WiFi off, mobile data off, Bluetooth off when the screen is off. I don't want to be traced in shops.

- ICE I can be reached by phone or SMS.

- When opening the screen WiFi, Bluetooth and mobile data can reconnect to communicate with the outside world.

Exception: Bluetooth connection allowed when driving.

I have had glove mode and night light on Concept, great.

 

When will network providers stop resisting eSIM?

Re: Software Features request for XZ1

I don't think that they will improve camera with firmware update. They will maybe do that with the next year's flagship so they would attract new costumers. But at least they should do something with some software Features like ambient display, raise to wake and night mode. If someone doesn't won't them, he can turn them off.
