Hope I put this in the right forum, this is my first ever Sony phone and I really want to get used to the Sony way of doing things on Android.

I'm just wondering how to hide apps on the app drawer?
How to uninstall some of the bloat?
What is the likely hood of getting updates (Like 4.4.2 to 5.0.0)?
When on the phone the sound is really low, anyway of turning it up?

Questions do go in QnA so this is in the right place

Hiding apps i think there isnt a way yet exept GEM xposed module but you need root

Removing bloatware, some can be uninstalled or disabled via settings > apps and some you actually need root if the previous options arent avaliable

Xperia flagships usualy have 6 to 36 month update plans so very likely to get Android "L"

And volume can be controlled via the rockers on the side (changes depending on what your doing aka playing music they control media vol)

Or you can review and change all via settings>sound>volumes

This may be useful to you

Thank you, I see the sound options but all of them are on max yet everything is still so very low.
