I just update my phone and now i feel a little lag, the only thing i notice is the “close all” button. So dissapointed.
today my xperia z1 received this update ota and i want to know if i lose dual recovery,xposed,root,4k record…,if i install the update. thanks in advance.
If your bootloader is unlocked and phone is rooted you will not be able to update the firmware through ota or PC companion. You have to use flashtool or Emma to update. If you do you will lose exposed, dual recovery and 4k/slow motion video. Lollipop does have 60 fps video and it looks like photo quality has been improved.
