Hi, to avoid a new thread I'd like to ask a few questions:
For europe (italy) use which china version is better? L50u, l50t or l50w?

Does it come with official rom and gapps or I need to unlock it? Had htc one m7 802t and got to many troubles to get gapps.
If it comes with a custom rom, how do I update it?

Do the 3 missing holes worse the phone somehow?

Thanks!

all Z2 versions are about the same, small minor differences with design and board,
the differences arent going to make majour issues

try getting one for your region to avoid sim issues

gapps it comes with by default

updating the stock rom can be updated through OTA or sony PC companion

custom rom updating... it has to be an app or something within the rom its self or you can do it the usual way which is flashing a new version of the rom

also by the way the you cant do much at all without a custom kernel containing recovery, and you cant have that without unlocking the bootloader

Sim lock shouldn't be a problem, might ask the seller first tho!

I was more worried about being stuck with a chinese rom (like the m7 802t) and forced to flash a custom rom.

i think you may be, im not too sure, the good part about most xperia roms are that they have multiple languages and if you get a generic asian device then it wont be sim locked
not sure about mobile net bands

try googleing or perhaps someone with a asian model can help

depends on the batch you gets, check in General threads you will see a post [ defect/ issues with batch ] so far the 14w20 is apparently good :3
you have to check personally for the gaps please refer the thread i just suggest, your bootloader should be unlock for rooting else you can't and if will brick your device

gapps = google apps. Chinese rom is unlikely to have google apps installed.
