I tried, but the problem is that the Xperia Companion gives me an error saying that my device doesn't support Developer Preview.
I will try to flash a non Operator customized firmware.

That's what you will need to do. Carrier branded firmware not eligible for beta

Mine had EE UK firmware, I changed to Custom US firmware to try the Q preview mode.
All I can say is that it's not worth to leave 9 behind just yet. It's pretty much stock Android without Sony stuff in it, kinda miss it already, but all in all I only noticed one bug.
Connecting earphones with Jack will still have the speakers playing music, but you're fine with Bluetooth connection.
The gesture thingy is pretty weird by the way, fortunately there's the option to go to the classic three buttons.

Tried it last night, some of the open issues makes it quite unusable.
  • Setup wizard can sync down backup data from google account/cloud, but not restore via BT/Wifi from other Xperia device
  • Delay with black background after the “Android Beta” information is shown before entering home screen
  • Camera functionality and quality are limited compared to Xperia SW
  • Camera button press is not starting camera, but double press on power button starts camera
  • Chromecast does not work for audio/video as cast icon is not shown
  • Media playback support is not on par with Xperia SW.
  • External SDcard is not fully supported for media playback and MTP
  • Audio routing with PHF is not fully working
  • Adoptable storage is not supported

Sd card is basically useless. So is dual sim.

This is a copy from the website and seems to not give a full actual experience..... I've been using all day and it runs well .... The Google cam app that's in it is crap bit I've installed open camera and it works great ...... And I can also play videos and use the SD card as normal ... No issues ....... Google camera does not seem to be compatible as of yet .... Until it's developed specifically for Sony I guess
