A few more great things I found out after the update:
1. The camera now gives you an option to choose between two ratios in superior auto mode: 16:9 & 4:3. The latter takes pictures in around 11MP. That is something that Sony did great. The 16:9 takes the same 8.4MP pictures.
2. The in built keyboard is now better than before and understands words better.
3. Now you can open as many mini apps as you want (previously it was only one).
Yet I expected that Sony would add a video call option, tap unlock (Xperia Z2) options to the update.
Anyway, that's my observation.
When 4.4.2 kitkat version is coming to Malaysia??? Please reply me, Thanks :-)

I have updated my ZL into 4.4.2 yesterday and till now everything is running perfectly smooth. Though I didn't like the status bar change, but I guess with time I'll get used to it. The The icons remained the same, only the battery icon changed in the status bar. Now you can switch various icons on or off (show/hide) from status bar. The camera is now even better. You can now take multiple shots (burst shots) just by press and hold on the screen (if you enable touch capture) or the virtual shutter or the mechanical shutter. The picture quality didn't increase that much, but the burst time is now much less (it can take more photoes than before in a given time). The video remained the same, but the sound quality in the walkman seemed to be increased a little bit.
These are the primary things that I noticed in last 24 hours. I expected that Sony will let us choose the notification color (like SP), but that isn't the case.
Those who have updated your phone, please leave a few lines about your experience after the upgrade.
