Dual Sim Dual Active Smartphones- Dual SIM Android Phones

Now a days most of the customers prefer buying a smartphone with a Dual Sim feature. I am sure that after buying a dual sim phone you must be annoyed at times as the feature is not as per your expectations. You needed a Dual Sim Dual Active phone. We have selected some of the best smartphones available in this cadre.

There are two types of dual sim smartphones. One is the Dual Sim Standby type and another is the dual sim dual active type. Majority of the smartphones are Dual Sim Standby type. In this type you have to do a call forwarding from one sim to another.

In Dual Sim Dual Active smartphones, both the SIMs are active at all the time. So while talking to your friend from one SIM, you can still get messages and calls from the other sim during the call. In this case you can put a call on hold and you can attend the call which has arrived from the different SIM.

The Dual Active phones have two separate Transceivers and in some smartphones there is different processor cores for the SIMs. This does lead to more power consumption. So a larger battery capacity is essential for such smartphones.

The customer does like the Dual Active smartphones, but they are a very few in the market. So let us have a look at the Dual SIM Active smartphones available in the market.

  • Raghu says:

    Does this list mean without call forwarding option set in the phone, call will be received if SIM1 is on a call and someone calls on SIM2?

    If yes, can both calls be conferenced?

    • jayvee says:

      other than samsung c3212 and one next series of 2011-12 none has that real time dual active tech. i.e. when sim 1 is busy, sim 2 will receive calls .. no call forwarding business.. you can combine calls and make conference..

    S6802 is not a Dual SIM Full Active. It only uses call forwarding, so let’s stay far away from this device.

  • prashant says:

    True dual sim active is htc one m7 dual, simple test it you can call your sim 2 number via sim 1 number or vice versa and you can receive it

    • joseph says:

      Hi Hertys,

      Could you please explain in detail if HTC one M7 dual is really dual active phone?

      which means if you are talking to someone on SIM1 and if someone called DAVID is calling you on SIM2, you should receive the call on SIM2 and DAVID should hear the ringing tone NOT THE WAITING TONE.

      Could you please confirm the above scenario is working?
