@ancient_mariner - I'm looking for a new Android phone for my wife. Not too big, decent battery life, reasonable but not state-of-the-art spec ... sound familiar? I used the very comprehensive Phone Finder functionality at GSM Arena and my shortlist was basically a bunch of Xiaomi phones including the 4X. It seems to tick a lot of boxes for my wife's needs, as it apparently did for you. Your early reports of usage seem very favourable too - so I think I'm going to get one. Unless there is anything else you'd want to add that would influence my decision....?
