I found a few bugs in lollipop and here they are:
1- xloud manual setting is missing, it's in lollipop integrated along with ClearAudio+. so when you tick ClearAudio+ you will have xloud, when you don't you won't have xloud. I also think xloud is not working with all apps (It doesn't give the loudest volume in speaker) I noticed this with "MX player" when I compared it to Default Sony app "Video" which gives louder sound.
2- I can't reach app info from recent app menu (just like it was on KitKat).
3- When I lock the screen (by pressing power button) I noticed it stills active for almost a second "In a very dark light which is barely noticed". if you want to check if this happens to you go to a well-lighted place or under sun light, and lock your screen and stare at the screen.
-Lollipop advantages in my opinion are: Faster camera performance, better visuals and animations and colorful menus (Google Material Design), latest Home app and widgets and lock screen and themes (just like Z3), Ultra stamina mode, more options under "power management" in order to save battery.
I found Speed and battery life to be almost the same for me as it was in KitKat.
This is "my" experience so far.

Do Not be just upgrade to Z3+ since your mobile is two years old!

Firstly, I am utterly disappointed with the "waterproofed" Z1 phone-y, pun intended.

I was quite surprised to notice a damp SIM card after trying 2 days online with SONY Gurus to "revive" my dead Z1, while overseas, to no avail.

After arriving back home from a working trip, still with some hope, I called the helpdesk for advise and was directed to the service center to try and see if possible to rescue it.
I rushed down to the SONY center at 313 Somerset, last chance, hoping to have some help, alas, the customer service attempted the same thing that I had tried since yesterday and then confirms that it is dead, either PCB or/and battery may be dead, charges, likely in the 400-500 range. excluding the $10.70 to investigate the cause before repair.

Warranty over, so only way is repair charges.

To add further "insult" to my phone care, I was told that likely that the waterproof covers were worn out and may not necessary keep the water out.
I have been using a magnetic docking to charge my Phone-y. and SIM, data and micro USB covers are hardly opened, except for the last 2 days to check the device.

It pains to have so much faith on the device, to even convince my close family and friends to buy Xperia Z series.

So no thanks to the costly repairs.

No thanks to a phone-y "water-proofed" device.

No thanks to SONY.

HI! After the software update of my new Xperia Z1 compact, I can not find an option to mute the speaker if I need to... Can not find an option to change the profili either... Does anybody have an idea how to fix the problem?..
