Top 10 Best Dual SIM phones currently available in India

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.

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.
