Mobile phones with a slot to insert two SIM cards at the same time, or what is the same, devices with dual SIM, offer great flexibility. By being able to use two phone numbers from the same device This allows us to avoid having to always carry the company's telephone number with us in case we have a corporate number. In the same way, it is a most interesting solution for those who travel a lot, since it allows the use of a local SIM so that calls are a little cheaper when we are abroad.
Before we start talking about the best dual SIM phones, it is important to take into account these two factors:
- Dual apps: If you have two phone numbers, you will most likely need to use two versions of WhatsApp or any other messaging app. Some manufacturers such as Huawei or Xiaomi have native functions to duplicate applications –also known as “Twin apps” or twin apps-, although if that is not our case, we will have to install an app cloner such as Parallel Space. You can see more details about the operation and use of the dual applications in this OTHER POST.
- Storage space: The vast majority of dual SIM smartphones usually use their second available slot to insert a microSD card. That means that if we use that second slot to insert a second SIM instead of the SD, there will be no free space for external memory. Therefore, if we are going to handle many files, photos, etc. and we want a little extra storage, it is essential that we acquire a terminal with enough internal space. That, or pull storage services in the cloud like Google Photos, Drive, Dropbox ...
The 10 best dual SIM Android smartphones (2020)
That said, most of today's terminals include dual SIM, so this guide that we will see below is merely indicative. The list would simply be endless. If you like a specific mobile but you don't know if it has the capacity to support two phone numbers… check it out because it is most likely also compatible.
Samsung Galaxy S20 5G
Samsung's flagship, a premium terminal with 5G connection and hybrid dual SIM that allows inserting a second SIM, as well as being also compatible with virtual eSIM cards. In the technical section we find a very powerful terminal with 12GB of RAM, 128GB of space, a 64MP quad rear camera and an Exynos 990 processor that offers one of the best performance on the market.
The truth is that it is not necessary so much "cucumber" if all we need is a phone capable of managing two phone numbers, but if what we are looking for is a top of the range with all the letters, the Samsung quality seal is always a safe bet.
Approximate price *: € 753.95 (see in Amazon)
All variants of the OnePlus 7T include a second slot to insert an additional SIM. The device has a powerful Snapdragon 855+ Octa Core chip, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space (perfect for not running out of space).
In addition to that, it also incorporates a 90Hz screen which makes the browsing experience one of the best that we are going to find in the market. The 48MP main camera takes great photos, and the Android customization layer is polished.
Approximate price *: 395.03 - 582.08 € (see in Amazon / AliExpress / GearBest)
Huawei P30 Pro
Although Huawei's P30 Pro has been on the street for a little over a year now, it is still one of the best options for those looking for a top of the range with dual SIM. Its design is simply exceptional, with dizzying specifications and a Leica camera that undoubtedly makes the difference: a quadruple camera with a 40MP primary sensor with f / 1.6 aperture.
The device can also boast more than commendable battery life, as well as water and dust resistance thanks to its IP68 certification. The Huawei P30 Pro uses a hybrid SIM system, with the second slot capable of detecting an additional SIM or a memory card. Of course, if you decide to remove the second SIM, do not insert a microSD, because here Huawei's proprietary format is used, nanoSD cards.
Approximate price *: € 599.00 - € 634.90 (see in Amazon / Huawei Store)
POCO F2 Pro
State-of-the-art terminal outstanding in all sections. Not only does it have 5G technology, it also equips a Snapdragon 865 processor, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal space (to give us an idea of its power, it has an impressive performance of 560,000 points in Antutu). FullHD + screen, 4700mAh battery and a 64MP main camera with f / 1.89 aperture. Top-of-the-range features for the price of a premium mid-range.
In addition, it has some interesting details such as the retractable selfie camera that peeks out from the upper edge when we are going to take a photo. Pure fantasy.
Approximate price *: € 404.00 - € 440.00 (see in AliExpress / Amazon / GearBest)
UMIDIGI A7 Pro
One of the best-selling phones currently on AliExpress. This UMIDIGI A7 Pro saw the light in April 2020 and one of its great strengths is that it is a most balanced mobile that barely exceeds 100 euros in price. Helio P23 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of internal space, FullHD + screen, 16MP camera with f / 1.8 aperture and a robust 4150mAh battery.
The good thing is that also, being a recent terminal, it has the version of Google's most current operating system to date, Android 10.
Approximate price *: € 103.50 - € 139.99 (see in AliExpress / Amazon / GearBest)
Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite
Although the Mi Note 10 Lite came on the market just over 3 months ago, it has already become one of the most highly rated smartphones by the community. The device mounts a large 6.47 ”screen with FullHD + resolution and an extensive 5260mAh battery. The camera also stands out thanks to a 64MP main lens with f / 1.89 aperture.
If we look at the rest of the hardware components we see that it incorporates a Snapdragon 730G accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which gives it a remarkable performance in Antutu of more than 260,000 points. The operating system is Android 10. A good option for those looking for a quality dual SIM mobile phone with a generous screen within the mid-range.
Approximate price *: € 270.83 - € 309.78 (see in Amazon / AliExpress)
If we are looking for a Huawei mobile that has dual SIM but is a little more affordable, the Honor 20S is a good option. It mounts a mid-range Kirin 710 processor, with 6GB of RAM to run programs without problems and a capacity of internal space of 128GB. All this with a large 6.15-inch FullHD + screen and a great 48MP ultra-wide triple camera with AI.
Approximate price *: € 189.99 (see in Amazon)
Xiaomi Redmi 9
One of the most successful phones in Xiaomi's Redmi series aimed at the mid-range. For just over 125 euros we have a quality device with consistent characteristics in most of its sections.
The camera is not as good as in other models of the brand, but in exchange we get a FullHD + screen, 4GB of RAM, Helio G80 CPU, 64GB and a titanic 5020mAh battery with fast charge. It is currently the best-selling mobile phone on Amazon along with the Redmi Note 9.
Approximate price *: € 107.77 - € 129.00 (see in Amazon / AliExpress)
Samsung Galaxy A30s
A mobile with the Samsung quality seal but at a much more affordable price than the rest of the manufacturer's terminals.
At the raw power level it is one of the most humble on this list, but in return we get an attractive design, a 6.4 ”Super AMOLED screen that looks luxurious and a more than decent 4000mAh battery. The main camera mounts a 25MP lens with f / 1.7 aperture and the operating system is updated to Android 10. A simple mid-range, nice to look at and affordable.
Approximate price *: € 177.00 - € 179.00 (see in Amazon / AliExpress)
If our budget is very limited and we cannot spend more than 50 or 60 euros on a mobile with dual SIM, Blackview has the answer to our problems. Its specifications are minimal, with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal space and Android 8.0 as the operating system.
You cannot ask much of this terminal, but if what we are looking for is a phone that can be used to make calls, chat on WhatsApp and watch the odd video on YouTube, we will be interested to know that this is the best-selling “cheap mobile” in Amazon by far (and the truth is that it has the most positive reviews).
