The best dual SIM phones

0. phoneArena 24 Jun 2014, 09:40 posted on

The best dual SIM phones let you take advantage of two good carrier plans at once, use one of the two SIM cards for family and friends and another for work, or simply allow you to snatch that great new data plan while your contract with another carrier still has mileage left in it...

Dumbphones and smartphones should have different lists.
Spec wise, smartphones really wins.
Durability and battery life, dumbphones win.

LOL.
so many thumbs down?
i guess some particular fanboys just can';t accept the fact that there are better-equipped phones than their beloved phone out there...

but it's glad to know that PhoneArena pays attention to reader's feedback and update the list with HTC Desire V and Samsung Galaxy S Duos.

btw, you guys should check the Lenovo S880.
and maybe you can put it on your list too.

What is the point of this articles, when most of them are not on the U.S. or EU market. Only import on full price.

U.S. and E.U. carriers will never let the big OEM to sell high-end dual SIM devices.
Samsung have no problem to put dual SIM on S4 or Note 3, but then they will lose the deal with the carriers. Even is Samsung sell it only at full price on the el.shops, the carriers will break the deal with Samsung.
Only low end dual SIM devices can go.

How can you say these are the best dual sim phones when there aren't any reviews made and most of them are not out in the market yet?

Galaxy series is not a good dual sim phone. Its has lot of problem can't use whatsapp. When using whatsapp second sim will be off. Best dual phone is Asha 305 with new using interface. Excellent phone.

I hope Nokia uses the asha 305 design again I like it!

I was expecting to see ZTE U960 as the best dual sim smartphone. Just read its specifications: Android 2.3 OS Qualcomm MSM8255 1.0GHz 3G GPS WiFi 4.3 Inch...

But here is the most important part: DUAL SIM ACTIVE STANDBY (i.e. it is the only dual sim android smartphone with TWO radios)!

i thought all these phones are already dual-active standby..

In which world do u live, Android 2.3 is out of this world in new smartphones, even someone gives that, come to India, you will find much better phones with kitkat and snapdragon 200 and 400 processors and dual sim and 1gb ram and still under $100 without any carrier subscription

You better check the date of comment bro... This is a updated rehashed article... I think PA should make fresh comments to avoid confusion.

the list is not a good one... first the tipo dual aint dual standby.. the asha line aint a smartphone and not dual standby...

the acer really is a good choice! i just hope that acer just raise the battery capacity to at least 2200mAh, 1500 mAh on a 4.3 qHD phone wont last a day... and thank for its processor for lowering it down...and i thought that they use mediatek's new chips!!

samsung already announce a new dual sim phone called the galaxy s dual.. i think its the s advance dual sim version... but great news about the phone is using dual core (qualcomm) and dual sim and ICS!!! i just hope not dual price! :) i'm hoping its only around $230 or php10,000...
