I also had problems occasionally getting the camera to focus on the exact spot I wanted like a foreground flower in front of a larger background. It can't always lock on to the smaller object and instead locks on to the background.

With most phones these days you can just tap on the screen where you want your focus.

FYI mirrorless can do it. TOUCH AF, or Touch Pad AF if using evf (use LCD similar as a mouse pad, finger tip as mouse), Touch AE, Touch shutter etc are nothing new to mirrorless.

In case of non OSPDAF mirrorless, basically the entire sensor surface can be used to set focus point without the restriction to the numbers and distribution of PDAF sensor points on the sensor of some models.
