Yesterday I got it for free along with the Singtel postpaid connection. Today I sold it off over Gumtree.

How about LG G2 mini? I own right now HTC one V (impressive scratch resistance) and I prefer to have it small (I carry ipad with me anyway). This one come pretty close.

Yes, seems to be a nice phone. Although screen size is same, its dimensions seem to be smaller than both Desire 610 and M2.

I have the 1s which is 3G only on one of the two sim slots, second sim is 2G.

My newer mi4i, is duel 4G
Let down of the newest model was the battery which is built into phone. My 1s had a replaceable battery, and I used to carry a spare $3 battery with me everywhere, instead of chargers.

redmi 2 is also duel 4G

I'm using a M4i now myself. The battery isnt replacable, but is really high capacity and lasts a long time.

Only complaint is that the network software is a bit buggy; switching active SIM for internet sometimes causes the mobile stack to restart which puts you into a "searching for network..." for a few minutes.
