A small note on how to make things rollin'.
Default configuration of Keenetic Ultra makes XZ1 Compact to stuck in a loop during authorization process. If you can’t pair your XZ1 to 5Ghz WiFi network just switch router network to channel:

Most modern marketing smart-phones are mumbling about support of really large SD cards. But only on Hi-End models. I’m not even speaking about pathetic iphones, which are disabled in terms of external storage due to the greed of executive directors. In this note i will check old mastodonts like:
[Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact ]
[Nokia PureView 808 ]
for compatibility with such ENORMOUS storage device.
Sony XZ1 Compact handles such capacity without any problems.

I’ve pointed to the fact that Nokia 808 is the most powerful camera-phone in terms of provided detail. I would like to remind you that previously tested [Samsung S20]
and even [1-inch Panasonic CM1]
can’t stand in direct competition to Nokia 808.
Here are sample pictures.
It is a known fact that dxomark resource
is a complete sellout and very prone to assign fake rankings. And no one in sane condition will use their results as a reference, because of their prepaid nature. dxomark’s cool conclusion of the past
that iphone is better then [Nokia PureView 808]
in terms of detail, makes me laugh till today.
Days go by and it looks like we have another “winner” here – [dpreview]
, to be precise.

I’m not a big fan of Sony smartphones. Yeah, their products almost always packed with technology, but in terms of engineering ideas and realization things they suck pretty badly. Same point of view regarding their photography division.
But nevertheless I’m using Sony XZ1 Compact as my main portable web gateway on daily basis. Using it due to ultra-compact size and no alternatives available. It’s a 2017 flagship, based upon Snapdragon 835 CPU and paired with 4Gb of RAM.
