Dual SIM smartphones are no longer rare. All smartphone vendors have options to offer. Here are the five best.
Dual SIM smartphones are a relatively new segment, which no smartphone vendor is ignoring. Almost all the smartphones from Indian brands come with dual SIM feature, and even MNC players like HTC, Sony, LG and Samsung are offering dual SIM phones within Rs 25,000. With too many options arises the problem of confusion and this is where we come into picture. So here are five great phones in the dual SIM Android category.
Samsung Galaxy Grand
Samsung Galaxy Grand is the mid level phablet for Samsung and comes with software that is similar to the famed Galaxy SIII, offering great value for money at Rs 21,300. The dual SIM handset is powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system and runs on a 1.2 GHz dual core processor. It has a healthy 1 GB RAM as well, and comes with a 5.0 inch TFT screen with WVGA resolution. Besides, the phone has an 8 megapixel rear camera with flash and a 2 megapixel front camera, which supports zero shutter-lag and ultra-quick camera start-up. It includes a backside illumination sensor to ensure clear shots even in the dark, as well as full HD video recording.
Apart from that the Galaxy Grand has GPS and Glonass for navigation, 3G, DLNA, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. It comes with a powerful 2,100 mAh battery and internal memory of 8 GB, of which 4 GB is available to the user. One can also use a micro SD to expand the memory to 64 GB.
