Best Dual SIM Phones in India (Dedicated MicroSD Card Slot)

When it comes to Android smartphones in 2017, most of them are dual SIM in nature. Only a few of the flagship smartphones come with Single SIM support because they blatantly copy the iPhone, which is a single SIM device. A Dual SIM phone has become a necessity nowadays. Most of us have two or more than two SIM cards. In most cases, we use one for personal usage and another for official purpose. Also, we tend to buy more than one SIM card to test out different telecom networks and use their different plans, since some of them offer cheap data while others offer cheap voice calls. A telecom operator’s signal quality depends on area, hence a user purchases multiple SIM card to test the signal strength and find out which operator is best in their area. There are multiple reasons why people purchase multiple SIM cards, thus we have decided to make a list of the best dual SIM phones that are currently available in India. These smartphones belong to different price segments.

The list is in no specific order, like most of our long form articles. So without any further delay, let’s get started.

    • Hi,

      It’s already mentioned in our article that it has a hybrid slot. All the phones in this list do not have dedicated microSD card slots. Would you like all the phones to have dedicated slots? Do let us know.

    • Hi,

      We have updated the list and have added only the ones that come with a dedicated microSD card slot. Do let us know if you want us to include some other Dual SIM smartphone in place of any phone from this list.

  • The very purpose of such a blog is useless as you did not mention any where that whether the sim slots are in addition to a separate sd card slot or not.Sorry but I am of the opinion that one should not upload such useless posts.

    • Are you blind? I have mentioned in the description of each and every phone that they come with a dedicated microSD card slot. All the phones listed in this article have Dual SIM card slot along with a dedicated microSD card slot. Please read the article properly before commenting anything that comes to your mind.

      Sir, your comment is useless and not our post. Have a good day, cheers!
