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...

its ok.. but you are right about the tipo dual tho.. you need to make use of a key to switch from one sim to another.. which is kinda lame nowadays

i could have voted for the xperia tipo dual, but changed my mind for not being dual active.. so my best bet of the bunch will go for the HTC DESIRE V!

well actually htc one v sucks a lot! lame battery lae display...

have you ever heard of lenovo p700? i dont know why both gsmarena and phonearena didnt list them on lenovo phone sections (maybe because its triband, but i think triband works ok for me)...

P700 is ICS, 4" IPS display, ang 1ghz processor... they both of them are compared and there's no shocking that P700 wins because of much cheaper (only 10,000 philippine peso compare to htc one v 17,000!) and already has an IPS display and faster processor!

you can google/bing/yahoo search it (i dont know what search engine you use) and look for yugatech . com's website!

umm...yeah... i think... its in my country (ph) and it beat htc one v in dust... coz i think lenovo just want to prove something first before entering the android wmpire of the world!! and its only triband so i guess it wont be available on US since ph and us have different frequencies!

Nah, Lenovo is not exclusive for Philiphine. It's biggest market is Asia, but the supply sucks. Have you ever heard Lenovo P780? It has a monstrous 4000 mAh battery.

I am not sure what dual standby means. I had a telstra dual sim and could only use one card at a time, had to activate the second card which would de activate the first. I see no mention of the HTC one m7 802w which has 32gb of internal memory 2 gb ram, 1.7ghz quad core processor, 4mp camera, 1080 x 1920 pixels, 4.7 inches touch screen with a front camera for video calling

Ohh boy you forgot XPERIA M dual which is very good mid-low range dual sim phone with specs to rival some mid range phones!

+1 The C2004 model of the Xperia M is the only dual sim phone that you can use with T-Mobile 3G in the US.

Xperia m2 or Xperia t2 ultra are much better, but list will go on if every dual sim phone will be shown

I am looking to buy alcatel one touch idol x but I am unable to find it anywhere. Can someone help me in this regard?

Go to JD-dot-com, one of the largest online retailers there, choose the English version, and search for Idol X. They just marked it down to $300, I guess Idol X+ is about to be announced. It's usually shipped as a gift with lower value, so as not to pay customs duties...

I had a 4 sim phone, quad standby, i had a mobile shop here in india, but those are for those who actually need them for some purpose, like flexi recharge, but i don't recommend anyone. I have a dual sim phone with dual standby but instead of using dual sims, i have two separate phones, its kind of messy to use dual sims on same phone, many bad accidents could happen and can cause your break up with your girl

Try Allview, some of my colleagues have these dual-sim phones, they have good specifications and are affordable.

sir i don't know us market has these phones or not, but i guess they will have moto g dual sim version or moto e. If not, i think lenevo is launched there, so many lenevo phones are dual sim only, also if asus zenfones series and if you can't find them, go for Samsung duos, they are everywhere but Samsung is not good in mid range, they lag too much. My personal choice is moto g,if you can find it
