    I am a bit at a loss as to why certain countries are already receiving 5.0.2 while other countries are still waiting for 5.0…

      Sony directly rolled Android 5.0.2
      There is no Android 5.0 for Any Xperia.

      Updates are regional so one has to wait otherwise you can flash the firmware ftf, download via XperiFirm tool.

    I am facing heating issues! Also, the battery life, which used to be around 35+ hours now goes dry in less than 20 hours. Shocking!
    Also, many apps are getting force closed after moving them to sd card. I’m planning to factory reset it, if all this goes on for next couple of days.

    Since I updated, my battery life is atrocious, loosing 1% per minute plus I plugged in my charger when it was 40% for appropriately 12hours & the battery only reached 88%. Haven’t reached full charge yet in 2days!!
