Best Dual SIM Android Phones

Among the few Android phones available from known companies (Sorry, I really am not sure about what companies like Celkon, Spice are offering), here are the best dual SIM Android phones that may be worth the money.

Best Dual SIM Android Phones #5 – HTC Desire V

HTC is the latest to join the dual sim Android market with its HTC Desire V. In terms of specifications, the HTC Desire V is the most powerful dual sim phone in the Indian market.

Best Dual SIM Android Phones #4 – Samsung Galaxy Y Duos

I am not sure how many people will take this – but the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos is over rated. With a display of such cheapness, its quite a surprise that the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos has managed to get a lot of buyers. Apart from the display, the phone is quite good.

Samsung Galaxy Y Duos

 

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Samsung TouchWiz
  • 832MHz processor
  • 3.14 inch screen of 240×320 resolution (127ppi)

Best Dual SIM Android Phones #3 – Micromax A52 Superfone

Who would have thought that Micromax would enter the smartphone business and not only that, they did it in quite some style. The predecessor for A52, A50 sold like hot idlis and the same will be the case for A52 because of the range of features it offers for the price.

Best Dual SIM Android Phones #2 – LG Optimus NetDual

I am not even sure people are aware about the existence of such a phone – trust me there is. Samsung had a phone that reached millions because of the Ad campaign, LG has a much better phone, but fails to get even a few 1000 buyers because of the lack of marketing.
