Hello. I am looking for an Android smartphone with 100% confirmed Dual SIM Active or Dual SIM Full Active, not the ubiquitous Dual SIM Stand-by.
Currently, I am almost sure only for Huawei Honor 8 (FRD-L09, FRD-L19) and Honor 7 (PLK-L01) and Honor 6 Plus (Pine-L00, PINE-L04). But according to Huawei's support ( link here ), Dual SIM Active also have:
HUAWEI P9 Plus (VIE-L29) Dual SIM card general 64 GB international edition HUAWEI P9 (EVA-L19) Dual SIM card general 3GB + 32GB international edition HUAWEI Mate S Dual (CRR-UL) 4G 128 GB luxury edition HUAWEI Mate S Dual (CRR-UL00) 4G 64 GB premium edition HUAWEI Mate 8 (NXT-L29A) HUAWEI Mate 8 (NXT-L29B) HUAWEI Mate 7 (Jazz-L11) TL10 HUAWEI Honor 8 (FRD-L09) HUAWEI Honor 8 (FRD-L19) HUAWEI Honor 7 (PLK-L01) HUAWEI Honor 6 Plus (Pine-L00) HUAWEI Honor 6 plus (PINE-L04)
According to Samsung's support, Dual SIM Active only has:
Galaxy A8 2018 Galaxy Note 9
Samsung did not give me the exact designations of these models. But according to of this statement at MGSM The Galaxy A8 2018 has the usual Dual SIM Standby.
Below are other models that, according to information found on the Internet, are suspected of having Dual SIM Active:
Honor Magic DSFA (NTS-AL00) Huawei Honor 9 Lenovo vibe x2 Lenovo z2 pro ASUS Zenfone 2 Dual SiM - Full Active (ZE551ML) Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9002 Dual Sim Full Active Samsung G9008W S5 - Dual Sim Full Active Samsung Galaxy A7 2016 Dual SIM Sony Xperia M2 dual
But of course, reading various forums, user statements, watching movies, the stairs begin and it gets confused. That is why I am asking you for statements that are best confirmed by an eye test that the phone (the exact manufacturer's designation is welcome) has Dual SIM Active.
For those unsure about having Dual SIM Active, I suggest you perform the following tests. ATTENTION: any call forwarding from SIM2 to SIM1 or from SIM1 to SIM2 should be disabled. So, for example, in Samsung with Dual SIM Standby, disable the "Two SIM cards always on" option.
Test # 1: we call a free number, e.g.. 800 100 300 from SIM1 card, when we hear the conversation, we suspend it and try to call for example 800 100 800 from SIM2 card. Has the second connection been established and can we switch between the two calls? Test # 2: we call a free number e.g. 800 100 300 from the SIM1 card, when we hear the conversation, we call the SIM2 card from another telephone. Does our phone show a second incoming call on SIM2 and can we switch between both calls? Test # 3: we establish an active connection to the Internet using a SIM1 card and listen to internet radio or watch a movie. We call the SIM2 card from another phone. Does our phone show a second incoming call on SIM2 and we can answer it and still actively use the Internet during the call?
I hope that thanks to your comments, a certain and confirmed list of phones with Dual SIM Active will finally be created, and I will buy one of them .
What budget do you want to spend on the phone? New or used ??
It is rather irrelevant. But it's best if we limit ourselves to the models available in Poland. It is mainly about creating a confirmed list, thanks to which everyone who visits here will have everything in one place and on a plate.
Browsing the list of phones on this site, practically everything is confirmed, from what I have learned so far from the sheer volume of information. The rest of the phone data also seems to be in line with reality.
Of course, your further comments about the phones with Dual SIM Active confirmed by eye are welcome.
Thank you very much for this post, I have the same problem as user honor 8, also looking for something with more memory and checking each model for dual sim active. For example, the given honor 9 is only dual standby. At the moment, the phone with a large internal memory available on our market is Note 9, but its 6/128 gb version with the N960F code is a dual sim active one. I am looking for information as with version 8/512. Can anyone confirm?
