Useful backup possible?

The Nokia 8 Sirocco User Guide mentions there's a complete backup, including app data, setting and whatnot. I had to transfer my backup between two identical phones, since I had to exchange a broken display. I found that the Google backup is in fact next to useless. It did not include

  • device settings, like WiFi networks or else
  • any application data, eg email accounts or else
  • phone call history, messages

How can I create eventually useful backups of all data, suitable for a complete restore of my phone? Regards

Full backup including system image is currently impossible with out the bootloader being fully unlocked for custom recovery, even ADB backup -all command won't backup the system image I've tried.
