Padfone 2 connector has died, so its time for a new phone. Id say upgrade but dont have the money for a s4 : (

I thought about getting the s3 mini.

But then I saw the s4 mini duo which would be good as my new work phone is a windows phone which im not liking (cant change the keyboard?!?!) and I dont need anything too fancy. Would save me having to carry 2 around.

Basically my phone is on 2degees, and the work phone is on telecom, will I have any issues getting one of these phones?
Has anyone else heard anything about these phones? Ive found a lot on the s4 mini, but not the duo.
I have no intention on moding or anything, just for basic use.

Hi I have a S4 mini Duos which I run on Vodafone and 2 Degrees. There are a couple of issues. The big 1 is that only 1 SIM can support 3G data As you want to use it on Telecom and 2 Degrees you will be restricted to using 3G on Telecom and GSM on 2*degrees
There is also no 4G or 3GDC support with download restricted to 21.6Mb.A lot of the published specs don't differentiate between the I9192 and the I9190.
I have not tried it on Telecom but understand it is quad band 3G
Other than that I find it a nice phone to use
