Using it on my N7 '13, it's pretty good.

37% more battery life seen on the N5 while browsing over WiFi. That's always a plus.

New toggles are great. Non customisable sadly.

The Cards task manager is great.

Material Design UI is great. Big, big change. Although the UI isn't consistent everywhere, many apps are yet to be updated for it.

The Camera API 2 also brings these to the table:

Many of the finer control*configurations*can also be modified, including:

Exposure time
ISO Sensitivity
Frame duration
Lens focus distance
Flash trigger
Color correction matrix
JPEG metadata
Tonemap curve
Crop region
AE / AF / AWB mode
AE / AWB lock
AF trigger
Precapture AE trigger
Metering regions
Exposure compensation
Target FPS range
Capture intent
Video stabilization

Is this discussion about Android L only, if so why is it in the 'Sony Xperia Z1' section of the forums?

As you see in this thread you have a chap posting images of the Android L on a Nexus 7 when this is a Sony Xperia Z1 section forums.

Sony's implementation will look nothing like the vanilla Android L.

I am sure there is a sub forum just for Android L chatter irrespective of what device you have outside of the 'Sony Xperia Z1' forum.

why not. Sonys current launcher (xperia home) is very similar to standard android.

considering the was 4 billion discussions for Kitkat in the xperia z1 area not long ago, i dont see why we cant have 1 discussion for Android L

An Android L discussion is fine if it relates to the forum the thread was started.

The guy who started the post has an LG G2 for god sake.

Just another irrelevant thread then?

Here me thinking someone will start a good discussion thread with reference to the Sony Xperia Z1 and future Android L release by Sony in the Sony Xperia Z1 forum on XDA.

Who gives a toss for screenshots from a Nexus device?

Stupid me, should of relaised it is another useless thread.
