I've got a Z3 Compact running Android 4.4.4 (build 23.0.1.A.5.77), and I've nearly managed to get it to work the way I'd like it to. There's one remaining irritation: when I drag upwards from the "Home" button, I'd expect (based on other phones I've owned) to get Google Now. On the Z3 Compact, I get two circles - "What's New" on the left, and "Google" on the right, and I have to be careful to hit the Google circle, not the What's New circle. I'd like to tell What's New that it's simply getting in the way and upsetting me, but it doesn't appear to be possible to do so. Xperia Care UK tell me that it can't be done - that Sony have decided that I've simply got to put up with this, whether I like it or not, and that if I use the instructions floating round the Internet for disabling it with adb, I'm going to make the phone unsupportable, with possible warranty implications. They've also said that they won't give feedback to Sony Mobile for me, as that's not something they're allowed to do. This is the last thing that's irritating me from the pre-installed software, and I'd like to get it fixed. How do I get Sony Mobile's attention?
