You are correct to want a touch screen to suit your style of shooting. Sony should have it and make it switchable.

However, on this forum, you have many camera users who basically use center point AF. You put the focus frame on the subject, half-press, recompose and press shutter. It is fast and allows both hands on the camera to steady it. Of course, why not offer both AF procedures to suit everyone. (I assume it is inexpensive as all phones use it)
