If you root your device, the device may perform well in the beginning, but, not always.
The fast performance of any device when a custom ROM is installed is because THE MOBILE IS CLEARED OF ALL MESS IT WAS HAVING JUST BEFORE, now the rooted hanset has lesser apps,lesser amount of personal information you had before.
After sometime, if you install all apps that you need, you could easily see that there are not any performance improvements, rather only some insufficiency caused to once well-performed processor.
However, the added features, and new designs and the privilege to customise every single thing about your phone may seem like a icing on the cake, but pls dont root if you need SAFETY, EFFICIENCY, AND WHATEVER THE COMPANY DESIGNED THE DEVICE FOR THE USE IF IT.
At the moment I'm using it with CyanogenMod 11 derived from KitKat. It's a very stable state and can be safely used. Newer CM versions, Lollipop or Marshmallow, can be at an early stage therefore with some bugs.

RogueanX, 24 Oct 2015Because Xperia SP is similar to Xperia Z performance, but Xperia Z more expensive than Xperia SP IMOI know that, but nobody BUYS them anymore. New, at least. Thing is, people who had a SP at the time were literally made redundant when it didn't get Android KitKat. I had to risk bricking my phone just to get to that position lol
