    I updated my Xperia Z1 Compact to Android 5.0 Lollipop yesterday, April 13th. I had two issues with it. One I’ve solved, regarding how to switch off ringtone and let phone in vibration only mode. Another seems a bug to me: I can’t remove any app or widget icons, once they are on the desktop I tried to dropping them in the red X REMOVE bar above, but it doesn’t work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

      To FAB, just press one of the volume buttons, then tap on the bell (left of sound slider) and it will switch to Vibrate mode.
