Dual sim cellphone

Postby daffodil » 2nd Sep, '13, 17:44

Tired of carrying around 2 phones (personal & company), tablet etc...so thinking of investing in dual sim.

Have been looking at the Samsung (as currently using Samsung) - any other recommendations out there?

A lot of the Chinese brands have dual-SIM phones, and I heard they're pretty good. I don't have any experience with dual-SIM phones though, but this might help:

I personally like the looks of the Huawei Ascend.

On a second thought, based on specs alone, the HTC seems the best bet. You wouldn't want anything with less than 2GB RAM, because it will lag (also maybe the dual-SIM ability uses up a lot of RAM? I don't know, you should do some research). Plus I'd want LTE, can't imagine life without it now.

I would probably agree with nev's recommendation of the HTC One Dual SIM. The Samsung looks large (5.8" screen) and under powered (1.5GB RAM) and the Huawei just doesn't have the same specs, but may come at a cheaper cost, so depends on your budget.

I'm using a dual SIM phone, it consumes more battery life, especially if it is a smartphone with two data packet. I guess you'll be needing another battery or maybe a portable power bank.
