5 Best Dual-SIM Phones in 2018

Work and pleasure shouldn’t mix, but sometimes combining the two is the best thing to do. With a dual-SIM phone, you can have both your work number and your personal number in a single phone, rather than carrying a separate phone for each. Dual-SIM phones are especially popular in Asia, as evident from the number of Asian smartphones on this list, but even Apple has finally caught onto the trend with the latest generation of iPhone.

Apple iPhone XS & XS Max

As you probably already know by now, Apple has released a new generation of iPhone, and one of the new features is dual-SIM support. The iPhone XS & XS Max feature dual-SIM support with a nano-SIM and an eSIM, the latter being a global specification that enables remote SIM provisioning of any mobile device. At the moment, only 10 countries support Apple’s eSIMs, but the number is expected to grow in the future.

If you have an older iPhone, you can use your existing nano-SIM for your main carrier and the eSIM for your secondary carrier. The setup process is straightforward, and you can customize how you would like to use each carrier. For example, you can use your primary carrier as your default line and your secondary carrier for cellular data only.

When making a call using the Phone app, you can switch between carriers by tapping the current one directly from the keypad as long as you have iOS 12 because the dual-SIM feature isn’t supported in previous versions of iOS.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9

The Galaxy Note 9 is a productivity-oriented phablet with dual-SIM support, extra-large display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440, stereo speakers, and S Pen, an intelligent Bluetooth stylus that makes writing and drawing as natural as pen and paper.

Equipped with a flagship chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the Galaxy Note 9 is among the most powerful Android smartphones on the market, and it delivers a buttery smooth experience with no lag even when multitasking.

The Galaxy Note 9 is available with 128 GB or 512 GB of built-in storage space, and you can expand the storage space even further with up to 512 GB microSD card. Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Note 9 with an intelligent camera that recognizes what you’re looking at, optimizing color settings like contrast, white balance, exposure, and more.

OnePlus 6

OnePlus is a Shenzhen-based Chinese smartphone manufacturer that has risen to prominence thanks to its progressive marketing strategy and products that deliver excellent value for money. The OnePlus 6 launched on 17 May 2018 as a direct competitor to Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy devices.

The smartphone has dual-SIM support, sports a camera notch, and features state-of-the-art specifications. For the price of a mid-range smartphone, you get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, 6.28-inch Optic AMOLED display, two camera sensors, up to 8 GB of RAM, and a large battery with support for fast charging.

The OnePlus 6 launched with Android 8.1 and OxygenOS, a customized version of the Android mobile operating system developed by OnePlus for its overseas market. OxygenOS is widely considered to be one of the best implementations of Android currently available, and many OnePlus customers would stick with the brand just to use OxygenOS instead of stock Android.

Huawei P20 Pro

With its Leica-branded camera, two SIM card slots, flagship hardware specifications, and elegant design, the Huawei P20 Pro is one of the most attractive dual-SIM smartphones in 2018. The smartphone is available in three colors—Black, Midnight Blue, Twilight—and it was co-engineered with Leica, a German company that manufactures cameras, lenses, binoculars, rifle scopes, and ophthalmic lenses.

If you’re familiar with Leica, you probably know that its cameras and lenses are on the wishlist of many professional photographers. The camera Huawei and Leica have developed for the P20 Pro lives up to Leica’s name and amazes with its ultra-fine level of detail, vibrant colors, and exceptional low-light performance.

The photos you take with the P20 Pro will burst into life on the 6.1-inch OLED display with superior color gamut. Instead of a virtual bar, the smartphone relies on an edgeless fingerprint sensor with smart navigation, allowing you to enjoy the stunning display in its entirety.

Xiaomi Pocophone F1

Xiaomi has proved that it’s possible to create a flagship Android smartphone that costs less than $400 and has dual-SIM support. The Pocophone F1 features latest flagship silicon from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 845, in addition to 6 GB of memory and 64 GB of expandable storage in the base model.

What may also surprise you is the capacity of the battery inside the Pocophone F1: 4,000 mAh. Of course, compromises had to be made somewhere to reach the unbelievable price. Because the Pocophone F1 is aimed mainly at the Indian market, Xiaomi sacrificed NFC connectivity since it’s penetration in India is still very small. The smartphone also comes with a fairly standard IPS LCD display with a camera notch, rounded corners, and small borders.

But if you’re willing to look past these minor limitations, the value the Pocophone F1 delivers is simply unbeatable in this price range.
