Soon I'll be in South American countries where it's fairly common to have your phone snatched on the street or robbed at gun point. Apparently a strategy that many locals use is to have their "nice phone" at home and something less nice for going out. Worrying that my current OP7 may be too much eye candy even though it's not branded.

A smaller screen size is definitely less flashy and attractive to thieves. I liked the size of my old Huawei P10 (5.1") but have passed it on, and besides it was very hard to root (so hard that I gave up).

Would some of you be able to recommend some easy-to-root (TWRP + Magisk) phones with a smaller screen, say in the 3.5 to 5.2" range?

The model can be current or from a couple years back, it doesn't matter.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

By the way, I'd be willing to get a second-hand unit if the recommended model is no longer made.
