Updated my ZL (C6502, India) via OTA on Thursday 6/4/2015. In the two days that I've used Lollipop -
1. Phone discharges quicker than KK. Charges slower than KK.
2. No Xloud, ClearPhase. Two of the best features.
3. ClearAudio+ bad sound quality compared to KK.
4. Equalizer, Surround Sound bad quality compared to KK. Almost no bass.
5. Meaningless headset selection in sounds. Why does it matter ? Didn't matter till KK.
6. Smoother and more responsive than KK. Fixed Boom Beach crash on startup.
7. Awesome, fresh new UI. Feels good. A welcome change after a long time of the same monotonous UI started from 4.0.
8. No sound quick setting to switch between, general, vibrate and slient modes.
I have hung on to this device because I love the Sony sound and the crisp display. But you guys really screwed up the sound for me on this one. The sound on KK was awesome. I had to, to my dismay, roll back to KK just for the sound.
The noise suppression microphone on my device is shot. No one can hear what I say unless I turn it off in Call settings. And even then, the volume of my vice is too low. I was told to visit a different service center just because my phone is out of warranty. Plus if I have to fix it, I'm pretty sure, I'll have to pay a hefty price for it.
I have avoided buying an iPhone (even though I am an iOS developer) because of the fixed equalizer presets, no sound customization, and incredulously high price. Please do not make me buy an iPhone. Please fix the sound. All that was needed was to pick up the sound libs from KK and put them in LP. And hope that 5.1 also comes to the older Z series. If the 5.1 update disappoints again in the sound department, I'll have no choice than to either stay with KK or to buy an iPhone.

I have read a lot about that most say problems, some say there is no, and a few says I had some at the beginig and after a day it is ok.
I updated yesterday with pc companion. firstly when I tried to update, a message appeared and wrote, "you need 1.2 gb free space, you have 1.07"
I checked, in fact it had 2.2 gb. I turned off the phone and restarted, gave the same warning, then I turned off and took out of the battery, and then I turned on, it wanted to begin update.. again I turned off and restarted, waited 30 second and connected to pc and updated..
so after all that, it works perfectly. I always use my phone "stamina on" and "currnet location off" I opened it whenever I need.
at stamina, battery duration 1 day 6 hours, at ultra stamina 5 days 7 hours, now the battery has got %55 power.
and os %10
stand by %5
. and goes on; so there is no problem for my zr c5503
I advise you to restart your phone a few times, and at least once remove the battery before updating.. and use pc companion (but it seems c5502 has got the most problems).
my only problem so far is if you shut down wifi, and open it(click on the wifi button) it may take 10-20 seconds to activate.
I go setting and open there once..

Try performing a system repair using PC Companion as this will often fix issues - This will factory reset your phone and erase all data so best to backup before you begin
Switch off your phone and unplug from Pc (Hold volume up and power for around 10 seconds)
Start PC Companion and select Support zone then Update my phone/tablet then in Blue Repair my phone/tablet and follow the on screen instructions - When prompted connect your phone still switched off holding volume down or back button - This should start the repair or reformat process
If you are using Windows 8/8.1 or a 64bit operating system then adjust the settings for PC Companion and run in compatibility mode and chose Windows 7 or XP
