Hello Respected All

I've been browsing this Xperia Z1 forum for quiet sometime but haven't been able to reach to the crisp answer to two of my queries

1. I want my Z1 to be free of all the unnecessary bloatware I got pre-installed(I got my Z1 second hand and don't know about it's details, though it's a 4.4.2 upgraded thing with build number as 14.3.A.681 and at boot it displays a vodacom logo)

2. Primary reason to go for a Z1 was it's whopping 20.7 Megapixels things, though I derived it later I can get only 8 Megapixels in Superior Auto mode, switching it to manual increases the picture size by few MBs but the quality doesn't improve, Images in low light are grainy or smokey, can I somehow get full potential of 20.7 Megapixels from my Z1 camera in Superior Auto mode

Please also suggest what FTF should I choose for maximum performance and minimum bloat if I choose to flash my phone

Regards
Umer(Pakistan)

1- To de-bloat your phone just flash a Stock FTF for your model, C6902/3/6? To do so use the latest Flashtool v0.9.16. You can find the FTF in Mega Collection in General Section and download the General or International once.

2- The Image Quality, as reported, was improved with KitKat so if you are already on it there is no much to do, download the latest FW .757 or Root your phone and apply some tweeks to improve it with Framework Xposed and some modules (20mpx in Superior Auto) but I think you will not see much improvement, like I did.

Done.
