We all might feel one single SIM phone can't meet our needs, and want to have a best dual SIM Android phone. But how? Fret not, today we'll explain it.
A dual-SIM phone means you can have two numbers while you hold on one device. Meanwhile, on either number, you can make or receive calls and send or receive texts. In other words, you can use two mobile providers simultaneously if your phone is not locked into a specific network.
Two SIM cards can provide for a more cost efficient solution, since you can run two numbers at once!
You can carry one device while keeping your personal and work lives separate.
You can select the right mobile operators to enjoy both good voice plans and data plans.
You can pay less money to keep in touch with your family or close friends in another country.
