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

Wow thanks you guys for letting us Oreo users knowing we shouldn't upgrade to Pie. We sincerely hope Sony will address this bug for you 😕

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?
