Upgraded using Sony PCC yesterday, and must say that I like the new build very good. My phone is totally stock, unrooted, non branded version.

Overall the speed of the phone is a lot better. Especially in Hangouts and the launcher. No more waiting for two seconds after pressing the "home" button for icons to show.

Also battery is drastically better for me. Two hours screen time, an hour of talking, everything on sync as normal and still 70 % battery after 12 hours... Pretty impressive.

Still have black screen in Chrome on multitask, though. Annoying

Anyone else have experiences or bugs to share? I will try to sum it all up in this first post, making it easier to get an overview. I will mark the info I have been able to confirm with green color.

It appears they didn't fix the one bug where the text was not in line with the row layout when you are installing an apk but you can easily remedy by using xposed and installing fix sony 4.3 bug

I strongly hope they fixed that horrible "association rejected" wifi bug that my Ultra has with .290 Firmware.
