While many folks can get by with a single-SIM handset, there’s something to be said about the flexibility that is afforded to you when you have a dual-SIM device. A dual-SIM setup allows you to not only potentially have two different phone numbers but you can also have one SIM for data, another SIM for calling and text, and you can more easily travel abroad without having to remove your primary SIM card.

Typically manufacturers do not make dual-SIM versions of all their phones, instead they usually create dual-SIM models for phones that are popular in international markets. Sorted by price, on this page is where you will find our list of the best dual-SIM Android phones currently available. We will keep this list up to date as new phones are released, and as always please share your thoughts on what you think the best dual sim Android phone is.

Editor’s note – We will be updating this list as more devices hit the market.
Update, June 2016: This month we removed the OnePlus 2 to make room for the OnePlus 3.

Best phones under $200

Motorola Moto G (2015)

The Moto G, one of the most beloved budget phones on the market, is now in its third iteration. This time around, the handset offers up a 1.4 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor and either 8 GB storage and 1 GB RAM, or 16 GB storage and 2 GB RAM. bother models include microSD support, a 13 MP rear cam, a 5 MP front cam, a 5-inch 720p LCD display, and a hefty 2470 mAh non-removable battery. While the Moto G has never been about flashy extras, this year’s model does introduce waterproofing and LTE to the mix.

For those that lust for customization, the Moto G also includes limited Moto Maker support. While this feature isn’t as robust as you’d find with the Moto X Style (Pure Edition), it’s still a great step in the right direction. As for software? The phone runs Lollipop out of the box, and it is likely only a matter of time before a Marshmallow upgrade makes its way into the hands of consumers.

There is one trick, though! The U.S. version doesn’t have a dual SIM card slots. You will have to either find the right version elsewhere and have it imported… or you could skip this one and check out the other options.

Specs

  • 5.0-inch LCD display with 720 x 1280 resolution, 294 ppi
  • 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor
  • 1/2 GB of RAM
  • 8/16 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 32 GB
  • 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera
  • Non-removable 2470 mAh battery

BLU Life One X

The BLU Life One X is a newcomer to the budget-friendly space, and it packs quite the punch. It boasts a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a super fast MediaTek MT6753 CPU, microSD expansion and a big 2900 mAh battery. Not to mention the solid build quality – this device has a real aluminum frame and a plastic back plate that makes for a great in-had feel.

We’d normally expect a device of this stature to go for about $200-$250, but that’s not the case here. You can purchase the BLU Life One X for only $149.99 from BLU’s website.

honor 5X

Huawei has finally announced its plans to break into the US market with the honor 5X. The honor 5X was announced a number of months ago, but it was just recently revealed that the dual-SIM budget handset would be coming to the United States for only $200.

Featuring an all-metal build and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, the 5X absolutely comes to market with a few features that we don’t normally see on sub-$200 smartphones. It comes with a big 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 616 processor, 16 GB of storage and microSD expansion up to 128 GB. It also comes with a 13 MP rear camera, a pretty sizable 3000mAh battery, and runs Huawei’s EMUI atop Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. Huawei says the device will receive its update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow sometime soon, as well.

You can pre-order the honor 5X from Amazon in Dark Grey, Daybreak Silver or Sunset Gold color options for only $199.99.

OnePlus 3

OnePlus did a great job at hyping up its 2015 flagship, the OnePlus 2. After missing the mark in a few key areas like camera and software performance, though, it was very clear the company still had a lot of work to do.

Fast forward to 2016 and we now have the OnePlus 3. Not only does it fix many of the issues we had with the 2, it also brings some new software and camera features to the table that are definitely worth checking out.

With the OnePlus 3 you get a thin, all-metal unibody design, a Snapdragon 820 processor, a massive 6GB of RAM and a perfectly capable 16MP rear camera. The battery is a little smaller this time around, but it does come with Dash Charging technology that will be able to get you a 60% charge in just 30 minutes. Oh, it has NFC too!

The best part? You can buy it right now for just $399 without and invite. That’s right – OnePlus has finally done away with the dreaded invite system for good.

Specs

  • 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, 401ppi
  • 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 6GB of RAM

  • 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera

OnePlus X

The OnePlus X is one of the best budget devices you can purchase right now. It’s compact, extremely fast, and boasts many of the same software features that come with its older brother, the OnePlus 2. It has an impressive 5.0-inch AMOLED display, a perfectly capable Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 gigabytes of RAM, microSD card expansion up to 128GB and two SIM card slots.

There are a few things to watch out for, though. If you want to activate the device on AT&T or T-Mobile’s networks, you may not have great 4G LTE coverage, as the device is missing the appropriate bands. It also comes with no NFC on board, so you won’t be able to use mobile payment methods like Android Pay.

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly smartphone and don’t mind spending a few extra bucks, get the OnePlus X. You can purchase it from OnePlus’ website for $249.99.

Specs

  • 5.0-inch AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, 441 ppi
  • 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 3 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 128 GB

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (5.5-inch)

It features a simple and elegant design, a solid 13 MP rear-facing camera and a fantastic audio experience. For the price, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better value than the Idol 3 – it has a beautiful 5.5-inch Full HD display, a capable Snapdragon 615 processor, and runs a slightly customized version of Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The phone is now available from Amazon for just $200, which is quite the steal considering the impressive features this phone brings to the table. Be sure to head to the links below to check out our full review. Trust us, this phone might surprise you.

Best phones above $400

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Samsung did a killer job with their 2015 flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Design-wise, many would say those two phones were close to perfect. The company forwent a plastic design and instead included glass front and back panels with an aluminum frame. They weren’t without their flaws, though. The S6 and S6 Edge didn’t offer expandable storage or removable batteries — two features Samsung has been known to include in all its smartphones for years.

Now the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have made their way to the masses, and they fix many of the problems the S6 line introduced last year. While they don’t offer removable batteries, Samsung included expandable storage on both handsets in case the 32GB of on-board storage isn’t enough. Samsung mostly stuck to the same design this time around, though they did shrink down the camera bumps on the back and made the devices a little thicker to make room for larger batteries.

In terms of specs, these are top-of-the-line smartphones. They come with Quad HD Super AMOLED displays, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors, 4 GB of RAM, great 12 MP rear-facing cameras and run the latest version of Android. Instead of featuring the same screen sizes this time around though, Samsung kept the S7 at a smaller 5.1 inches, while the S7 Edge has been bumped up to a larger 5.5-inch panel.

Seriously, these are some incredible smartphones. They are a little pricey, but all in all, we think the high asking price is worth it.

Specs

Samsung Galaxy S7

  • 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 577 ppi
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM

LG G5

While the Galaxy S7 series is a minor refresh in terms of design, the LG G5 sees a massive departure from the design language used in the G series, ditching the rear volume/power setup that first debuted with the LG G2. The G5 also adopts a unibody metallic design that has a removable cap for access to the removable battery and a port for modules that allow users to expand the phone’s capabilities by adding a camera grip and other special accessories.

The distinctly different design of the LG G5 may not be for everyone, but there’s little denying that LG has went out of its way to try and innovate in a market where big changes like this aren’t all that common.

Spec wise, we’re looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB RAM, a 5.3-inch display, and 32 GB storage with microSD for expansion. The specs here are certainly impressive all across the board. It’s also worth mentioning that LG has revamped its software, making it faster and less bloated. One controversial move with the software, however, is the removal of the app drawer in favor of what LG says is a “simplified experience.”

Specs

  • 5.3-inch IPS LCD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 554 ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 32 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 200 GB
  • 16 and 8 MP dual rear cameras, 8 MP front camera
  • Removable 2800 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 149.4 x 73.9 x 7.7 mm, 159 g

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

It’s hard denying that Samsung has always been the king of large-screened smartphones, and that still holds true today. With its crystal clear 5.7-inch display, powerful Exynos 7420 CPU and killer 16 MP rear-facing camera, the Galaxy Note 5 is one of the best Android phones available on the market right now.

It’s an all-around solid device, boasting an all-glass chassis that’s similar to that of the Galaxy S6. It comes with an improved S Pen and some great multitasking features that will make it easy to get work done. The software is much more clean and simple than we’ve seen from the company in the past, too.

With all of that said, though, this device doesn’t come without its caveats. Samsung’s decision to omit the microSD card slot and removable battery has been a controversial one over the past few weeks, especially among Samsung die-hards. Even with these notable omissions, the Note 5 can still be considered one of the best out there.

Specs

  • 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 resolution, 518 ppi
  • Samsung Exynos 7420 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 32/64 GB of on-board storage, no microSD card expansion
  • 16 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera
  • Non-removable 3000 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm, 171 g

Huawei Mate 8

Huawei recently unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the Mate 8. Featuring an extremely premium build, market-leading performance and great battery life, this is one heck of an Android device. Huawei still has yet to make the Mate 8 available in the United States, but that caveat is easily bypassed when buying the device from Amazon or any other online retailer. Luckily Huawei decided to include just about every band needed to connect to U.S. carriers’ networks, so if you do choose to import, you likely won’t have many problems on the connectivity front.

All in all, the Mate 8 is one of the better Android devices we’ve used in recent memory. It has a big 6.0-inch display, fast Kirin 950 processor, plenty of on-board storage and a decent camera. It’s also running the latest version of Android, which is a nice touch. Huawei’s software overlay may not be the most appealing to folks in the U.S., but that’s really one of the only downsides we have with the device.

Specs

  • 6.0-inch IPS-NEO LCD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, 368 ppi
  • 2.3 GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor
  • 3/4GB of RAM
  • 32/64 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 128 GB (uses SIM 2 slot)
  • 16 MP rear camera, 8 MP front camera
  • Non-removable 4000 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 157.1 x 80.6 x 7.9 mm, 185 g

    “A dual-SIM setup allows you to not only potentially have two different phone numbers but you can also have one SIM for data, another SIM for calling and text, you can more easily travel abroad without having to remove your primary SIM card and the list goes on.”

      • Brad Bauer

      I’ve been using the Ascend G750 for a while now… very nice phone with very decent specs for the price (±300 dollars) but the service (at least where I live is pretty, pretty poor. For instance, they removed the stock android encryption feature but refuse to tell me why or when it will be put back in. Every time I contact them it can take well over 2 weeks before they respond. Wouldn’t recommend buying one.

      I am using the BLU Studio 6.0 LTE Version with DUAL SIM. (Model Y650Q) as my daily driver.

      Can’t beat the price of $179.99 at Amazon.com

      It is UNLOCKED.

      It has Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.6 GHz Quad core with Andreno 305 GPU

      13MP Main Camera with LED Flash and 5MP Front camera

      16GB Internal Memory, 2GB RAM. Micro SD Slot up to 32GB (or 64GB with FAT32 format)

      4G LTE and 4G HSPA+ up to 42 Mbps

      Compatible with T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Cricket Wireless, Straight Talk, Net10, Ultra Mobile, Walmart Family Mobile, H20 Wireless, 420 Wireless, Red Pocket, Telcel America, Lyca, Go Smart and more..

      4G HSPA+ Compatible with AT&T

      3G/2G GSM SIM cards compatible with H20, Straight Talk, and select prepaid carriers.

      This Unlocked phone though will NOT work with CDMA Carriers like Sprint, Verizon, Boost or Virgin.

      My issue is it still runs on Kit Kat 4.4.2 But hopefully a Lollipop or a CyanogenMod will be released soon.

      The Phone Calls and Messaging from works well simultaneously from SIM1 and SIM2. It allows you to select which ones to use.

      But for people who use Apple’s iOS iMessaging it’s difficult to get their messages especially if it is a Group Message. It’s an Android vs iOS thing. But I don’t mind and there are Android Messaging Apps out there that you can use to make it work. I just haven’t explored it yet.

      Therefore, this phone should’ve made this list.

        He’s referring to the most important feature of dual sim phones – what models will run both sims at once, and also I’d like to know, what “g”… As some (all?) don’t run full speed/tech on both.

  • Drakov Sergey

    As anyone who has had sonys would know , the waterproof feature is a “maybe”, I owned 2 xperia z3 dual sim, one was water proof, the second one wasn’t, touched water and became a $800 brick.
    When it comes to phone signal, if you’re working with the band’s 1700 2100, don’t bother wasting money on this thing, they advertise as these bands are included and they are, but in all the 3 sony’s I have owned, the signal is shitty and disconnects way too much (and often doesn’t connect at all).
    At this point what I can be glad about the sony is the camera, but if that’s the only best feature on a present time smartphone, is not worth it.
    The signal is better and stronger on a cheap phone I tested (que 5.5, dual sim, which sells for 120 bucks).
    Sony’s customer service is non existent. I’m still waiting for a part they said they’d send me, they said would take 14 days; it’s been 5 months.

      Compatible with T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Cricket Wireless, Straight Talk, Net10, Ultra Mobile, Walmart Family Mobile, H20 Wireless, 420 Wireless, Red Pocket, Telcel America, Lyca, Go Smart and more..

      4G HSPA+ Compatible with AT&T

      3G/2G GSM SIM cards compatible with H20, Straight Talk, and select prepaid carriers.

      This Unlocked phone though will NOT work with CDMA Carriers like Sprint, Verizon, Boost or Virgin.

      My issue is it still runs on Kit Kat 4.4.2 But hopefully a Lollipop or a CyanogenMod will be released soon.

      The Phone Calls and Messaging from works well simultaneously from SIM1 and SIM2. It allows you to select which ones to use.

      But for people who use Apple’s iOS iMessaging it’s difficult to get their messages especially if it is a Group Message. It’s an Android vs iOS thing. But I don’t mind and there are Android Messaging Apps out there that you can use to make it work. I just haven’t explored it yet.

      Therefore, this phone should’ve made this list.

      gross 6.0+ is a must if you are going to buy a phone now in my opinion. Doze and encrypting is a must in this day in age.

    • Michael Merrill

      Also if you are going the route of running a ROM you would be better off getting a cheaper older gen name brand phone. My favorite opinion is the LG G2 which you can find for a steal. NFC and 3000mah battery is never overrated. Dev support is alot better for it than a BLU phone.

  • ReptilianRedux

    Smartphones + non-removable batteries = FAIL. Planned obsolescence? You’re losing customers by not allowing aftermarket batteries that serve the need to use a phone beyond just 8 flimsy hours

  • Dusan

    I got Edge+ Dual SIM and was quite disappointed that you can only use 4G/3G on the primary SIM, the secondary uses only 2G. Which in my case is not even enough to make a call since my service provider’s network is based on 4G, and having a secondary SIM for data is pointless as it’s still only SLOOOOOOOW 2G speed.
    I should have done some homework. Just thought that maybe there are more who don’t know this.
    I wonder what the limitations are?

    • Acaa Aca

      you can use 4G on sim2 but you need to switch sim1 to 2G. i use it all the time on s6 dual sim. they can’t be both 4G at the same time.

    • Mars94

      Sir, if you ever check your messages, know that the problem is not a limitaion of the phone.

      If you ever want to switch the internet SIM you must go to network settings and set the SIM settings to 3G/4G LTE to the other SIM manually. This is the case with the galaxy s5.

  • balcobomber25

    This site is so in love with Moto. The Moto G is a terrible phone for $100 nevermind $200.

  • Equinox

    Don’t prefer dual sim phones

  • TheOracle

    Why does AA compile these lists with so many phones overlooked? Where’s the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro? Various offerings from Lenovo, Zuk, ZTE, HTC, Axxon etc? Why remove the Zenfone and put two One Plus models whilst retaining the Motorola? What’s the deal with the fascination with Motorola anyway?

    • Joonho Jung

      AA doesnt mention shitty xiaomi because most of us live in a country where the gov is not corrupt and respects each company’s patents unlike china and most south east asian countries

      • TheOracle

        WTF does that have to do with anything you moron. I suppose the two Huawei’s on the list are made in Alabama according to your warped Donald Trump logic?

        • Joonho Jung

          lol u retard I only mentioned xiaomi. Can u actually read? Huawei has lots of its own patents, unlike xiaomi who copies samsung and apple. I have no single word about huawei in my reply. Plus, huawei is officiaĺly released in major countries like germany, france, U.S, etc. Learn how to read u IDIOT

          • TheOracle

            “unlike china and most south east asian countries”.

            Your ignorant ass wrote that and I read it right. Just because a phone isn’t available in the west doesn’t make it a copy. The reasons for not launching in major Western markets has more to do with size and ability. Huawei, One Plus (Oppo/Vivo), ZTE, Lenovo and LeEco all dwarf Xiaomi.

            Xiaomi are in other Asian markets including India where anyone (especially Crapple) are free to sue them without the “protection” of the Chinese government. Why haven’t Xiaomi been sued yet?

            You’re an ignorant Jackass who should do more research.

            Btw I’m enjoying my Redmi Note 3 Pro here in Florida.

    • Joe

      Technically Motorola is a Lenovo company, though you mqke a good point there.

  • RJ V

    there is no dual active phone in right sense except the older model of samsung c3212.. a true dual phone should be able to get calls in their respective sims without call divert..i.e. when sim1 is busy, sim2 should also get call directly .. simply you should be able call sim2 from sim1 of the same device.. All cell phone manufacturers are mis-leading the customers..

    • mariusv

      Actually that is not true. I own a Honor 7 and I can call SIM1 from SIM2 and vice versa and like Honor7 there are many phones.

    • Game Hustla

      Nope Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML and my ZE550ML) and Huawei Ascend Mate7

  • RJ V
  • LG V10 Dual SIM variants are better.

  • 3223

    One question, why is it that dual sim phones have two separate IMEI? My dual sim s7 has two different IMEI, which is odd coz I thought IMEI is tied to a specific device…

    • cheezer88

      does it have both sims active or do you have to switch over to each sim to use a different phone number.

      • 3223

        It actually can have both aims active. Just that I am forgoing one sim slot for the SD card. You can even choose which sim to use for data. Both sims are on standby and can work, if I use it.. :p

  • Tiffany Green

    Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 – I should have gotten you vs the Asus Zenfone 2 (which broke down 60 days after purchase) …. aww well, ZTE works fine and I don’t believe those Federal agents who think their devices are spying for China (lol, did Apple pay them to announce that the Press?)

  • T_Dizzle

    Where are the LeEco phones?

  • Randy Leyba

    Can anyone recommend a dual sim phone with Wi-Fi calling that will work on T-Mobile USA?

  • 40jimlloyd40

    You can add the Axon 7 to the list as soon as it’s available.

  • DDD

    And again, the OPX gets put in the wrong section.

  • m.albinali

    Why mention sd card support if the micro sd card occupies the second sim and you no longer have dual sim support?

  • intruda

    Mate 8 with custom google rom is pretty nice.

  • David

    A dual-SIM device is really helpful.

  • Badelhas

    Why doesn’t the Alcatel idol 3 4.7 inch get mentioned, ever? I don’t even know why I comment questions to the editors here, they never answer, unlike Android Central

  • ktos
