Vodafone has a good range of well priced devices including a couple under 5" 0 including Vodafone Ultra Smart 7.

 

I wouldn't recommend buying a smartphone on Trade Me. Ever.

The Meizu range are exceptionally good value + warranty; got a m3 note for the Mrs.

I'm petty sure they have a new sub-$200 model coming out soon which will probably be <5.5". Pop in to your local PB Tech if you have one or look at: https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/MPHMZU5780/MEIZU-M2-Gray-5-HD-2GB-Memory-16GB-Storage-13MP-Ca

If you can stretch another $100 the P9 Lite is on sale at the Warehouse for $399 at the moment, they're apparently quite an improvement over the P8 Lite.

According to the specs on 2degree's website it has all the bands for Spark/Skinny and doesn't contain the word "locked" in the title so it should work on any network. If you're ever unsure whether a phone will work this website is very useful: http://willmyphonework.net/
