Has the Z2 ditched the ''Blinds Effect'' Lockscreen from the Z/Z1 completely on the Z2? or is the option still there to use it? I thought it was one of the nicer lockscreen's about, shame if they have ditched it.

Ditched completely. There is a "glitter" effect now like in Playstation, and that's the only available option.

I am coming from Galaxy S series, so just a short question.

Does the lockscreen also have the transparent status bar in Android 4.4.2, as in the home screen?
I have only seen pics of 4.3 lockscreen.

Are you sure? Have you went into settings>lock screen and ticked the "widgets" box or whatever it says. It could have been turned off
