Just creating this thread so that users can find the lollipop review at one place. So please write your initial experience with the lollipop firmware here.

Here is mine:
1. The user interface feels very smooth and snappy.
2. More amount of free ram in comparison to kitkat firmware(getting around 750 mb free in comparison to 500mb in kitkat)
3. Camera feels more or less the same
4. No XLoud
5. Now there is a sound played when the phone starts up
6. Power management is superb. Now we have ultra stamina mode.

Update: Those asking for battery life, I am getting nearly 6 hrs of SOT which is comparatively higher than what I got in kitkat

Its nice for sure.

-Eye candy
-Very good battery life
-Xperia stuff (Camera, widgets etc) not available on other ROMs
-Rooted and applied sound mod and I am happy (almost as good as fauxsound).

My Experience:
1. UI is so smooth
2. Battery life more or less the same with KitKat, need more testing.
3. Device seems a bit warmer. Don't know why.
4. PS Remote Play is available for XZU now (at least in Indonesian version) unfortunately no PS4 so boo hoo for me
5. Camera.. Yes still the same, no improvement
6. Small App getting closed on Back Button (shame that originally in Kitkat it didn't but because Z3 does close the small app on back button)

Overall very happy for it Feels like having new phone all over again

Im comparing to other Lollipop ROMs (eg CM12.1) for our Togari which donīt have Stamina mode, stock with stamina is way better than any other ROM.
But of course rooted now!!!

How were you guys able to root?
What procedure did you use? I lost root when I updated to L using PC Companion.
I have a locked bootloader btw.
Thanks!

Just wait for sometime. Let the system settle. Hopefully the battery life will be better.

At the moment no root for locked bootloader, have you checked if you are able to unlock the bootloader?

I have not tried unlocking the bootloader since all I am after is root.
As I understand, unlocking the BL is required only if you are flashing a custom ROM?
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Not really, unlocking gives you the possibility to root and install recovery and the optional possibility to install ROM.

Unlock your bootloader man!
