The latest (12.1.A.1.201) is a little better on ram but still not that good
There is no real way to root except by downgrading to 4.1 then upgrading via CWM
Wiping apps from rom is never a good Idea, tho if u have root u can play around with low memory killers and OOM'S but i suggest u stay away from em if ur a newbie

If you are looking for performance i suggest go back to 4.1
But if u are okay with a little lag, and optimizing the phone, then root and stay on 4.3 (also if u want the UI of 4.3). There are some guides to speed up ur phone on 4.3 i believe

For me i am unrooted on 4.3, but i have disabled heavy ram eating apps like google play services, google play store, maps and etc, still it is no way near what i can get from root

I have told u i believe all ways, it is your choice for what u want now

Follow my guide about using flashtool. Can be found in General Section or via link below in my signature!
Also this is a question (about downgrading) that has been asked a lot.. Next time search a bit

Phone: Sony Xperia SP
Model: C5303
Firmware: 12.1.A.1.205 Android 4.3.x

i suggest u too look away from Sony stock.. if u are unlocked try custom rom ... got around like 500mb free ram.. after install apss got like 400+ free... even if yr phone are locked u also try slimROMForLocked but to get those CWM running in locked phone if would be tedious
Xperia SP
:unlocked CM nightly
