    Hi to all

    Am looking for something quite specific. I'm currently using a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 3/32gb with an additional 128gb microSD card, but find myself needing something with more 'grunt' and bigger storage. So, I'm on the hunt for a phone that has:-

    Ideally
    • at least 4gb RAM, preferably more
    • at least 64gb ROM, preferably more
    • a microSD card slot capable of taking a card with at least 128gb capacity, preferably more
    • a large capacity battery, preferably 4000+mAh
    • a screen size less than 6inches
    • fast charge capacity
    • is easily root-able
    Preferably
    • wireless charging
    • NFC
    • a 3.5mm headphone socket
    Please get in touch if you have anything that might fit the bill.

    Many thanks.

    Location: London / Leeds

    As far as I can tell, the Mi Mix 2 doesn't have a microSD slot. Also not sure I'm keen on a camera at the bottom rather than top of the front face of the phone!

    Happy to consider other Xiaomi models though. Have been reasonably impressed with the Redmi Note 4 (apart from the low in-call mic volume and v poor camera).

    Yes, storage would be your issue then.

    I was not keen on the camera at the bottom, in practice I found it to make zero difference.

    Good luck with the search :thumbsup:

    Hi

    Thanks for letting me know but, as far as I'm aware, the P20 Pro doesn't have a microSD card slot?

    Thanks for the offer. Probably a bit too large a screen for my small hands but do let me have details, pics etc and I'll let you know.

    Cheers

    Thanks very much for this but root & battery life make it not really for me. GLWTS.

    Cheers for the pics. Having given it some thought, think I'll pass.

    Would it not be easier to name the phones you are interested in as there can’t be many that meet your demands.
