Top 5 dual SIM Android smartphones


The time when you had a personal smartphone and another for your professional activity is over thanks to dual SIM devices. Here is a selection of today’s best dual sim phones.

Dual SIM

The dual SIM smartphones offer many advantages, in addition to not having two phones to manage, it’s easy to switch between the work number and a personal number. Also, with two different operators, you can profit from x2 offers, if you work abroad, a second SIM from the country in question will help to avoid extra costs. A very interesting tool for professionals or simply if you have a 2nd girlfriend 😛 .

1Archos 50 Diamond

A Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 2 x 1.5 GHz. 16 GB of internal memory and 2 GB of RAM. Most importantly, it is 4G compatible and can work simultaneously with two SIM.
