The best new dual SIM Android phones

0. phoneArena 24 May 2013, 09:37 posted on

If you want to take advantage of two good carrier plans at once, use one number for family and friends and another for work, or simply can't resist that great new data plan, but your contract still has mileage left in it, a decent dual SIM phone might come to the rescue, and, with Android, you don't have to sacrifice on apps and features anymore, too...

why shouldn't they protect their property, invented by them? If nokia wanted to they could freeze the mobile industry due to their patents. They don't because they'r not apple. But if someone uses their property without permission trying to omit the law, they've got the right to defend themselves.
Envisage that you've just invented something what could bring you milions. And it does. But then, someone come over and use it without asking you, ripping you off your hard-earned money. How would you feel? Wouldn't you defend?

Both BLU Life phones are not bad. Both phones have a quad core processor and running Android 4.2, I must say it's SUPER affordable!

I might get it if HTC put a 720p display like the HTC First.

Even better with stock android though

Cheap midrange and low handsets!

S4
Htc One
Sony Z
LG G
Nexus LG
Oppo5

They all should be available with every feautres!

You're paying £500+ for a handset

Those smartphones you mentioned are high-end, these smartphones are mid-range.

Not everyone can afford a high-end smartphone, these dual-SIM mid-range smartphones are meant to be affordable and for business man.

I wish more DS flagships were available, the Octa-core S4 with 2 SIMS is an awesome package, wonder why is it so unique in Europe.

Been looking at Tiger Direct, Amazon.com, etc but could not find most of these phones yet. Where can we buy them from? Also, the price I saw for the LG 7II (715?) was nowhere near the $280.00 mentioned, asking was around $450.00. COnfused!

I would love it if they made the galaxy note phones dual sim. That would make those devices almost indespensible to any future users that buy it. Including myself.

I still dont see the point for these. Atleast not in the U.S. Maybe in europe and you travel a lot between countries. If your worried about service here just get a VZW and your fine. Or if we can have one carrier with two seperate numbers. But you still wouldnt need this just use google to get another number for free.

Desire 600 just made me WOW. The design is quiet outstanding ! =_=
I just remember my Desire HD few years ago compared to SGS1 and now my dear One compared to SGS4, they all make "WOW" around compared to competitors. Respect HTC for a new start.

Galaxy Win could have been better with 720 display, 8 MP rear and 1.+ front shooters.

Can any of these phones really offer two active network connections simultaneously or does the dual sim capability simply let you switch between networks (one network at a time)?
