Android Phones that support dual sim and micro sd?

Wed Sep 07, 2016 5:15 am

Hi guys,
I am willing to get an android phone for a tour to another country so I can use a local sim there as well as my current sim with it. Please suggest me a few good ones!

I am looking for the exact same thing. My Sony Xperia Z3 is two years old now so I am thinking of getting a dual sim for my next purchase or contract extension. I travel quite often so this would be a marvelous idea.

Google fu

There are many types of dual sim, make sure you get what you expect. (active/text only, active/active, active/standby...) When i looked into it a few years back, it wasnt that nice.

Other catch was the 2nd SIM slot is shared for SIM or microSD card on a bunch. (Same tray/adapter accepts sim or sd)

It does not appear to have dual sim:

Weird that their site still shows it shipping with Android 5.x when the is an update available to 6.x:

Nougat apparently will be available next February (nothing confirmed at this time though).

ZTE Axon 7

It's about $400, but it has dual-sim (that works pretty well, I used it traveling in Europe). Only thing is that I can't edit the system tiles without rooting.

HTC 10 offers a dual sim and microSD capabilities. Currently still running a $200 off promo if bought unlocked direct from HTC, which puts it at $500. In other words $70 more than the OnePlus 3T with a better screen and camera.

i found this to be an interesting question so i did a quick online search. it does seem that there are very few phones that meet the specifications you want. here are a few that i uncovered though:

Sony Xperia Z5 Dual
Asus Zenfone 2
LG G4 Dual SIM
honor 5X
Microsoft Lumia 950
Lumia 950 XL

i hope this helps.

I got a $50 unlocked Alcatel Pop 4, Android 6, 5.5" display, Dual SIM, on Black Friday from BestBuy. I added a 32GB microSD and I'm go to go.
