Kitkat 4.4.2 Update available in India.

Yesterday I updated my Z 6602 and it's cool apart from battery usage.
*Battery drain very fast.

Hey Guys, updated My Xperia Z to kit kat last night, 4.4.2 and below are my reviews,

( Note : Please format the phone once after the update to remove all the lags in the UI )

Pro's,
- Amazing lock screen
- Lot more new options available in setting
- I have heard about improved battery life, not tested myself though
- Better battery icon
- And there would be obvious internal service improvements

Cons
-Laggy setting page
It can be fixed by enabling "Forced GPU rendering" but that would take a toll on phone battery. Not much though, but still.
-Lag in opening application
Click on messaging for example and see the lag. Its clearly noticeable. Even when i press return from the messaging app, there's a clear lag again
-Bad camera pictures in low light and in flash
This was there before too and still persist. The camera is great outdoor during day, but in low light and on flash, it takes sad photos. I clicked a pic with an Samsung S4 in the exact low light condition and difference was by far. I can share those pics too if required.

Overall i am not satisfied with the update. I feel the phone performance has marginally decreased. Though most of it can be made up by using the options in developers tool but the very need of that indicates that the phone performance has reduced.

This is good config phone. I can see my friend running 4.4.4 on Moto G and it runs smooth, i expected it muuch better on Xperia Z. Though i like Sony phones, not that satisfied with this update :(

XPERIA Z C6603 MODE (India)
updated my phone to kitkat last night..
Lots of error at first.
Factory reset was enough to solve the problem...
Improved battery performance and smoother touch...
