Stopped using Fuji's app

Why because it's too slow. Switched to Eye-Fi card

I lose the GPS but Eye-Fi's WiFi works so much better than Fuji's apps.And who really needs single point GPS anyway? Fingers crossed that Fuji's app will become more usable someday (e.g auto-connect, so you don't have to do the phone + Fuji camera dance every single time!).

Fujifilm Cam Remote works better with iPhone6S Plus than Google Nexus 6P

isn't Android supposed to better at networking? and multitasking?

How to transfer RAW files from Fuji X100T to iOS or Android wirelessly

doesn't seem to be a way

The only solution seems to be an SD card lightning adapter for iOS or an USB OTG cable attached to the Android phone or tablet and then attached to the X100T. There must be a better way, right :-) ? OK maybe not, maybe I should just patiently wait for the iPad Pro to have a decent RAW photo editor (my bet is that will be less than 1 year from . . .

The Nexus 6P has an auto-focus bug

which the Note5/S6 and iPhone6/6S don't have

I can't characterize it enough to get a set of steps to reproduce but it's there. Hopefully fixed by a firmware update or a camera app update.

Here's an example:
