DO u feel a bit laggy comparing to nexus 5? I felt so. Press on the running application button sometimes took a split sec longer. Navigate thru the ui sometimes jerk a bit.

It is very laggy compared to HTC m8. Maybe I need to disable Xperia launcher and quick apps.

I thought Google now is included as standard?

It is, it's in settings, accounts-google, search, and top row is Google now but disabled by default. Could be conflicts causing lag?

Google Now definitely came with my Z2 phone and tablet.
No lagg whatsoever, extremely fast.

It was disabled by default but as soon as you use google search (swipe up to right from home), it asks if you want to turn it on.
