Recently we came across some rumors that Apple might be looking to hit the Chinese market with a dual-SIM version of the iPhone 8, and there might be more truth to them than we originally thought...

I haven't read the patent myself, and I bet you haven't either, Oracle. So I'd reserve my judgement as I do for anything else Apple or not until I see it in public hands.

I'm not ignorant as you usually call me - I see and understand differences between other manufacturers implementations and how they're all different in their own way. I happen to like apples approach more often to tech stuff vs the competition. Not all of apples implementations or approaches are better, but we pick the best of what works for us. If that's ignorance than everyone is ignorant for choosing their own devices.

I don't need to reserve judgment. The best Apple can do to justify their patent is to do it differently but not necessarily better. I have been using dual-sim phones exclusively for the past 5 years (Samsung x2, THL, Nubia, Lenovo x2, Jiayu, iNew, Blackview, Asus x2 and Xiaomi. That's 12 different dual-sim phones if you're counting) so I know quite a bit about them. That's called experience and I would consider myself a target customer for Apple. My $300 4GB Zenfone 2 is dual-active and, from the description in the article, does the exact same thing without resorting to some b.s. geekspeak. All dual-active phones do that and that's all they're describing.
