Recommended android phone in 140x70 class

Tooluka has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Good screen, almost 100% sRGB coverage, sligtly higher red and green. Primitive tuning of gamma (3 fixed values only).
High screen to body ratio.
Good battery and battery life.
Good button ergonomics, small screen mode available.
Very functional and pretty UI. Some non-english services are in the phone firmware.
Easy root - in dev. firmware by default. Dual partition design for easy firmware revert.
Lots of storage in64Gb version. Sightly slower storage than newest Samsung UFS implementation but way faster than any class 10 microsd card.
Average sound pipeline (expecially inferior compared to bigger brothers with Sabre DAC and TI amp).
Some users report bad (quiet) mic or phone dynamic. No such issues on my phone yet.
Lots of models with different radios, hard to discern them. As a short guideline, in "about phone - model name" you should see either Mi 4W (3G WCDMA, no LTE) or Mi 4LTE-CU (3G WCDMA, 4G FDD-LTE - band1, band3).
Do not buy Mi 4LTE-CMCC and any other models, 3G and 4G in it will work only in China.

Perfect build, MIUIv6 not worsed than TouchWIZ. 4G works on Band3. Battery last over one day under heavy use, Google Play preinstalled. Can't wait for Win10 ROM that was just recently announced. A lot of accessories is available on ebay or xiaomiforsale.com
