Unlike the US, India is a country where national roaming isn’t free, and can, in fact, get quite expensive if you aren’t paying attention. As such, dual-sim mobile phones have become very popular, especially for those who travel across state borders often. Unfortunately, there aren’t many mid-to-high end devices in the dual-sim category. It looks like with the release of the HTC Desire V, the Taiwanese company is aiming to change that.
The specifications of the HTC Desire V dual-sim phone are:
Apart from the decidedly mid-range specifications, the device comes with HTC “regulars” that include Beats Audio integration and 25GB of free Dropbox storage space.
The HTC Desire V dual-sim smartphone is currently available in India from online shopping site FlipKart and is listed at a whopping Rs 21,999 (~$390).
HTC has recently become prominent in the Indian market, with the release of the low-end HTC Desire C, the high-end HTC One S, and now the the mid-range HTC Desire V, apart from the HTC One X, which has already been available for a while now. Unfortunately, HTC hasn’t been helping itself as far as the price point of these devices is concerned – even the low-end Desire C is priced at Rs 14,299 (~$253).
In the case of the Desire V, I think the device is a little overpriced, and the only reason to consider buying the HTC Desire V would be if you require dual-sim capability.
What are your thoughts? How important is a dual-sim capable phone for you? Will you consider buying the HTC Desire V? Let us know in the comments section below.

I would love to buy this phone for Dual SIM capability.
i would buy but if its dual sim active, for dual stand by there are more option available , don’t want to spend higher price.
This phone isn’t dual sim active unfortunately and I really don’t understand why such phones aren’t manufactured anymore. Maybe because of the production price but if I decide to spend a little more money for such a phone the dual sim active is a must.
does this one have Dual Active SIM feature..? Please confirm..?
SIR I WANT TO KNOW IF I AM MAKING ACALL FROM SIM 1 & IF ON SIM2 SOMEBODY IS CALLING IT WILL BE INTIMATED OR NOT FROM IMTIYAZ
I will not buy this phone for two reasons. One, that it is not a Dual Sim active phone, & the Second that it doesn’t have secondary Camera. Otherwise I would love to go for this Mobile, and will not change over in the next 2-3 yrs unless for a reasonable better technology.
