I'm interested in this handset. Warehouse stationary have the 2degrees version for $249 the spark version is $349. Apart from the slash screen is there likely to be a hardware difference between the two variants I.e bands supported. At $249 its very appealing, but it needs to work on skinny. Both data and voice.

We purchased the '2degrees' model from WHS and are using it on spark with no noticed problems (Wifes phone though, she may not notice). I dont think theres even any 2d splash screens. 

Sales rep told me there were no practical differences.

2d site say the spec are 

 

  • GSM: 850/900/1800/1900
  • 3G: 850/900/2100
  • 4G: 700/850/900/1800/2600

which cover all sparks freq i think - so if the web site is right then yes it will work

These phones do not have NFC in them as advertised. So make sure its something you don't need. I have complained to NL already about the wrong advertising

We picked one up for my wife on boxing day at Noel Leeming for $199, got the 2degrees version. doesn't appear to have a splash screen or anything branded. she is happy with it, for the price I feel it was a good buy.
