I can't believe the SD Card in this new release is still just a storage place for additional junk, while the system keeps all at the internal space... I won't hack the system files to have better sd card usage. Android is blind for any sd cards. Sorry, this is a NO GO.

Have you tried something like in this howto? (The ext4-version, of course.) In my Jolla 1 I have 128 GB, I wonder how big a µSD for Xperia could be....

Good reason to go for that F5122! Speaking of memory: how much RAM is available to Android applications? 512MB still?

  1. No, won't do a hack, it should be standard, afaik
  2. How to test that?

Nevertheless, SailfishOS is cute on the xperia. That said, besides the new hardware, it is still as it was: partially unfinished, with flaws, and limited.

Citing the release notes for 3.3.0:

Many Android apps can access the SD card, now. For instance, OsmAnd and HERE WeGo map apps can save the offline map tiles to the card. Likewise, Spotify can save the music to the card. Apps like WhatsApp can attach pictures from the SD card to messages now. The card name must not contain spaces.
