Lollipop 5.0.2 mini review
Getting 45 minutes more screen on time while WiFi browsing.
5 hours 40 minutes(kitkat was around 4 hours 45 minutes). Cell radio on. 25% screen brightness. Chrome browser. Page loading is snappier on lollipop
Getting 90 minutes more screen on time while watching videos.
screen brightness 70%. 1080p.mkv video files. 5000+ bitrate.
12+ hours vs 9.5 hours for kitkat. Airplane mode activated.
No nasty niggles or issues to report except the fact that maybe just maybe the call quality was better on kitkat. Camera performance just as bad as b4.
I use stamina mode all the time, in 5.0.2 there is another power saving feature which restricts processor performance and it really does work. Only problem is if the phone has been dormant for a while(overnight) it take 1-2 seconds for apps to open, there is lag but only for if the phone has been in deep sleep for more than a few hours, once they have been used its all smooth and fast. Don't use this feature and its business as usual. I don't use the clear all apps feature ever.
For all the brouhaha surrounding the notification centre of lollipop I find it less intuitive than Kitkat.
Lollipop dialer not as intuitive or user friendly as kitkat or jellybean IMO.
Interruptions... WTF Google WTF.
Fresh after updating battery life was not as good as Kitkat because the guest user feature is on by default, it is a resource hog and drains battery like a MOFO. Disable it.
Even after disabling some background indexing keeps going on for a few days. Give the Lollipop OS a week b4 passing judgement on the battery life.
Sony just announced 5.1 update for the entire Z series. SWEEEET
Is this phone discontinued in India..??!!?? have a plan to buy.. but not able to find in any store and its very rare in online (mostly imported with only seller warranty)
After upgrade to build 270, black out during calls still not fix. Sony can do fix next upgrades?
China clone? Z ultra has a china clone? How can we understand the difference between a original one and a clone? Any suggestions?

how many of you having an issue getting the phone to wake up?? i saw lot of videos on youtube shows the phone not wake up when press the power button.. The backlight turns on, but the huge screen remains blank... is this phone still have this issue.. ?? pls someone.. replay.. Thx..
So far so good for me. Best experiece use this phone. So Don't any regret if want choose this phone.Expensive phone not always give satisfaction. Couse all feature on phone not always full function for some people. Still use kitkat. Doubt for upgrade to lollipop. Hope they work hard to bring best improvement.

for all ultra users. I m using this device from 4 months and this is just awesum.
The Lollipop upgrde is great . The ocon size is bigger but just nice . There is no problem to make a call or receive call at all ( Some complaints on making/ receiving calls are not true ) . The ringer volume also same as before . No lag issue . I am satisfied with the upgrade .Please do not post any false experience here .
