After factory reset all seems good, 4h30 sot with an intensive usage (games etc). Idle drain stopped (1% in 4h). This phone seems to need a factory reset per update....... ?

Can anyone provide instructions for updating to the new firmware and keeping root? I have a rooted dual-sim, so how do I upgrade without losing data? Do I maintain root if I upgrade?

    There are plenty of little things new. Also, it is always recommended that major update of Android should be accompanied with a full wipe of your device. Trust me, I did a full wipe after updating through OTA & the performance is phenomenal.

    Here are some of things I noticed that are new which other users failed to acknowledge.
    1) The Startup Setup is redesigned
    2) 6 QS tiles instead of 5 in the notification header
    3) Round default icons for applications (System as well as play store apps)
    4) Updated transitions
    5) New style of Phone Heads up display (When a call comes, the heads up has been redesigned)
    6) Assist app in settings drawer
    7) QS controls removed from System UI Tuner (Sony standardised them in their edit QS)
    8) No more battery % disappearing​ issue when it is selected from System UI tuner because Sony removed it from System UI tuner & standardised it.
    9) New long press power off menu (Redesigned + addition of emergency call button)

    The device feels much snappier & more responsive.
    Overall a great update.

    So far very pleased with the update in general.
    The battery drain seems to be less, specially over night, I would usually loose 5-6%, last night it was 1%, with all the apps I usually have.
    The battery information in the settings is changed and now makes a lot more sense and is more detailed compared, the previous one was a mess.
    The phone feels snappier and faster, more responsive.
    I was also pleased to see there were some obvious changes in image processing, it seems like they reduced the amount of unnecessary noise-reduction and upped the sharpening a bit.
    The contrast balance in auto mode seems better, the distinction between shadows and lit sections is better.
    Aliasing on the edges of objects further away is less than before and also I see no edge blurring as before. In 16:9 there's still some minor loss in detail on very edges of the frame when you zoom in, but in 4:3 the entire frame looks equaly sharp.
    In general, the photos look much cleaner, more detail, a bit stronger colors and better brighness/contrast adjustment. To me the camera was always great, I'm not what you'd call a pro-user in regards to camera and photos, but still, improvements are welcome.
    I took some before/after samples indoors, one from closer under direct light and one from far away, standing in a very dark hallway to see how it handles auto white balance and brightness. Both identical conditions, auto mode, 23mpix 4:3 and object tracking disabled. The samples are cropped and zoomed in, test 1 and 3 are before the update.

    Umm how do i relock ? Is it possible on the X Series & is it Through Flashtool ??

    Apparently so, I have not tried it but someone on here has reported they relocked using flashtool.

    Very well, I will try & report back.
    Thank You for your support :)

    Yes you can relock your bootloader using flashtool ;)
