Decided on an Asus ZenFone 2.

Dual SIM 4G

---We did get a pair of these ~June 2015, and are very happy with them.
As well as a pair of "Rugged Armor Hybrid Hard Cover Cases" for $7.60ea from China.
Was wondering if the large 5.5" screen size increase from our old devices would be hard to manage/get used to, but it's bloody fantastic.
Am very impressed with Android 5.0 - it's far superior, more polished, user-friendly & well-featured than old versions.
The Asus software on it seems OK too, with not too much crapware, though the Asus Calendar app is very thin on user tweaks & controls.
The stock Camera app seems very good, love the special effects.
It seems to pick up & use 4G fine.
The GorillaGlass seems great, have only dropped the unit twice ever and thankfully from a low height with no damage.
For a modern unlocked Android unit in the ballpark of the AUD$350 mark with the specs it has, for mine it certainly falls into the range of well worth considering - highly recommended.
