In other words, if you compared your smartphone and your SLR at equivalent DOF and shutter speed, raising the ISO to compensate, the smartphone would cream your puny SLR

What smartphone and DSLR do you use to get your cream?   DPR has a tool that can compare different cameras at different ISOs - not a lot of phones but plenty of small sensor digicams.  Where's the cream?

Thus, the sane solution is to find a format for which DOF seems sufficient at normal aperture ranges,

My apertures go from f/1.4 to f/16 or maybe f/2.8 to f/22.  I use aperture priority so they are all just as available.  What's "normal"?
