The best dual SIM phones

24 Jul 2012
Phones that can maintain two carrier network connections at once have been around for a while, lurking in the shadows of mass adoption anywhere but emerging markets, where those are very, very popular. So popular that there are local brands you've never heard of that make boatloads of them.
 
If you want to take advantage of two good carrier plans at once, use one number for family and friends and another for work, or simply can't resist that great new data plan, but your contract still has mileage left in it, a decent dual SIM phone might come to the rescue.
 
That's why we've rounded up a few brand-name dual SIM handsets in the slideshow below to help with your choice when one Subscriber Identity Module just won't cut it.

Sony Xperia tipo dual is a low-end Android smartphone suitable for first-time smartphone owners. It comes in a dual-SIM flavo and has a 3.2-inch HVGA (320x480) display made out of scratch-resistant mineral glass. Inside it runs an 800MHz single-core Qualcomm processor, and on the back we have a 3.2-megapixel camera. 
 
What is really worth noting, however, is that the Xperia tipo is equipped with a 1,500mAh battery, which should deliver over 24 hours of continuous usage time, according to Sony.
