Long story short, i'm on a contract with Vodafone, and the reception at work used to be great. It no longer is any good, to the point where i'm uncontactable in some areas, and will not be fixed in the near future. Rather than pay termination fees to get out of my contract, I was thinking of buying a new dual sim handset and putting a Spark prepay sim in the other slot (Spark coverage is good).
I've always tended to go for (close enough to) flagship devices, the last three being HTC M7, M8 and currently a Samsung Note 4. The Note 4 was a prize, and to be honest, I normally wouldn't have wanted something so unwieldy, and am not a big fan of TW, but as always, have essentially gotten used to it.
Options I seem to be able to find that would suit my tastes, are
1. Galaxy Note 5 Dual sim model (parallel imported) - roughly $1000
2. Huawei Mate 8 (Huawei have suggested that this would be available in NZ from April) - ?$1100-1200
3. Galaxy S7 dual sim model (currently the only way I can see to get this would be ebay, roughly $1100NZD + gst I assume)
I have considered also a Z5 or Z5 compact, but not completely sold on the Sony devices yet. I'm open to any suggestions. If I could just go out and buy any device and not have to worry about it having dual sim, i'd rather a Nexus 6P or maybe the standard S7 (as reference for the kind of phones I like). And of course, paying less than $1000 would be preferable, but i'd find it hard to "downgrade"
