Best Dual Sim Android Phone – May 2013

We’ve seen dual SIM Android phones become increasingly more popular in the smartphone market, but which one is really the best dual SIM Android phone? Let’s look at a few examples, and you can decide which one is the most suited for you based on your budget.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos is not only the best Samsung dual SIM Android phone, but also the best Android dual SIM phone on the market. Dual SIM phones haven’t had very good specs or quality historically, and this one is not flagship either, but the performance should be enough for most people. The only problem is that some may consider it a little too big. The specs look pretty decent, though, which still make it the best Samsung dual SIM phone:

  • CPU: dual core 1.2 Ghz ARM Cortex A9 CPU
  • GPU: Broadcom VideoCore IV
  • Display: 5″ TFT LCD, 800×480 resolution
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Storage:  8 GB, microSD slot (up to 64 GB)
  • Camera: 8 MP
  • Front-camera: 2 MP
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, Wi-Fi hotspot, DLNA
  • OS: Android 4.1

Samsung Galaxy S Duos

If you believe the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos is too big for you, but you still want one of the best dual SIM phones out there, then the Samsung Galaxy S Duos might be more your style, measuring only 4″. The specs are not as good, but the display should actually look sharper because it has the same resolution, but with a much smaller screen, which increases the pixel density, and makes the display look sharper. This latest Samsung dual SIM phone can be a good choice for just about anyone, and you can get it for a good price, too.

  • CPU: single core 800 Mhz ARM Cortex A5 CPU
  • GPU: Adreno 200
  • Display: 4″ TFT LCD, 800×480 resolution
  • RAM: 512 MB RAM
  • Storage:  4 GB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB)
  • Camera: 5 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • OS: Android 4.0

HTC Desire V

The HTC Desire V is a beautiful HTC dual SIM Android phone. This is one of HTC’s first tries at the dual SIM market, and I’m glad they are starting to noticing that more people want dual SIM phones, especially in non-US markets. The HTC Desire V is a decent first try from HTC.

  • CPU: single core 800 Mhz ARM Cortex A5 CPU
  • GPU: Adreno 200
  • Display: 4″ TFT LCD, 800×480 resolution
  • RAM: 512 MB RAM
  • Storage:  4 GB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB)
  • Camera: 5 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • OS: Android 4.0

Sony Xperia Tipo Dual

Sony Xperia Tipo Dual is not a high-end, or even a mid-range device, but it looks very good for low-end dual SIM Android phone. Those who hate large screen phones may find this one a lot more comfortable, although a 3.2″ screen may be too small for some.

  • CPU: single core 800 Mhz ARM Cortex A5 CPU
  • GPU: Adreno 200
  • Display: 3.2″ TFT LCD, 480×320 resolution
  • RAM: 512 MB RAM
  • Storage:  3 GB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB)
  • Camera: 3.2 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • OS: Android 4.0

Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos 1589

The Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos 1589 is definitely a low-end dual SIM Android phone, but you may not have a choice if you’re looking for a low-end device. The specs are somewhat similar to the Sony Xperia Tipo Dual, but it seems to be using an ARM11 chip, which is slower than the ARM Cortex A5. But if the others are too expensive, this Galaxy Ace Duos may be a good choice for you.

  • CPU: single core 832 Mhz ARM11 CPU
  • GPU: PowerVR SGX531
  • Display: 3.5″ TFT LCD, 480×320 resolution
  • RAM: 512 MB RAM
  • Storage:  3 GB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB)
  • Camera: 3.2 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • OS: Android 2.3

If you’re looking for the best of the best dual SIM Android phone, then that’s obviously the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. If you’re budget doesn’t allow it, however, you may choose one of the others, which are still very decent phones.
