US carriers promised to lock things down tightly after the One came out. I guess we'll see.

do we know if this device has a locked bootloader that will be hard to crack or will they actually design it to be unlocked like sony does.

im trying to decide between m8 and z2, and i know sony has been cool in the past with allowing the phone to be easily rooted and unlocked to allow flashing. i am coming from a galaxy s4 with unlocked mdk bootloader but i am upgrading and i want to be able to mod my phone

I ordered an m8 to test our cases on, but the z2 is the one I'm really looking forward to. It will have to be amazing though for me to give up my Note 3 screen real estate!
