-How easy to root this phone? Do I have to unlock it's bootloader?
-Does it come with the same sensitive capacitive interface like the z1 did? (will it recognise a pencil?)
-What do you guys think about the overall?
- Looks like has great viewing angles in youtube hands on videos.
- Sony doesn't track. But I am not sure if it can be said for google. Google services are deeply integrated into Android OS. But same applies to all Android phones and for iPhone (you know about iPhone tracking affair?). And there is a way to remove those services but no play store then and youtube and so on...
-You don't need to unlock and it's easy. Just wait till the phone get released and somebody will 100% figure out how as always.
-My dream phone. It is solid and phen it falls it won't break, 20MP brilliant camera, Snapdragon 800, and that great IPS screen (I actually didn't want to buy sony because of viewing angles) and small enough.
