Yes, outdated before it even releases. But that is kind of the same story, as all dual sim phones being released in Europe...

I was going to place an order for the ZTE V970 but I just saw there's going to be some new releases coming up. The Blue Vivo looks interesting

BLU announces the VIVO 4.3 dual-core, dual-SIM smartphone - GSMArena.com news

Do I wait or is the V970 good enough? The front camera doesn't bother me and everything else seems good. I can't make my mind up!

Also seen the Acer Gallant is now on pre-order with Expanys at 148

I don't know that brand, but the specs seems to be about the same as the V970.

Note that the CPU here is single sim MT6575. The MT6577 is much faster.

Questions are welcome.
I think I'm going to go for the V970. Just another few questions if you don't mind:

1) If you get a SMS text on the SIM2 number, can you reply from SIM1?
2) Have you tried GO SMS at all? I'm curious how third-party apps will handle dual-sim messaging.
3) How is battery life so far in your usual daily use?

Thanks

1) Yes you can.
2) In GO SMS you get two buttons: One for SIM1 and one for SIM2. That is the app supporting dual-sim
3) Please have a look here, under "Battery": ZTE V970 Review (User review)

For all i confirm your positive test on A789, very good phone!
Windos driver can be found on the root of the phone in the map ΔΔPC together with ideatool (chinees version) which i cannot get to work but i think this have to do with the etotalk firmware. I also found an english version of ideatool but for me it has the same problem it keeps hanging in the connection screen. Have tried it ona windows xp computer

I was about to order the ZTE V970 with Etotalk but I came across this site which is about $50 cheaper once you factor in the delivery and optional extras (rooting/screen protector/silicone case in my case). I was wondering if anyone's used this site. It would be good to know it it's reputable.

And can you choose those extras (rooting/screen protector/silicone case in my case) on that site??

I guess you wont have any trouble because they accept Paypal payments...

I did a "live-chat" thingy with someone on the site and he said it comes with a case (not silicone, a hard case) and that rooting and screen protector will take it up to $200 which is still a lot better than Etotalk.

I thought Paypal would be a good safeguard too but I read recently there's a way of scamming around it. If the seller sends some rubbish and you sign for it, then he can demonstrate a delivery/receipt to Paypal. This complicates the process because Paypal will then insist you return the incorrect item (at your expense) before they refund. I don't know how true it is but I saw someone say this happened to them on another site and Paypal can be very inflexible if you look at the problems some people have had.

Might just go with Etotalk after all!

It is true that you have to return the item to get a refund, if it is "not as described". Your loss will be the return postage. I don't know if it is really a good scam, as you will get your money back, and the seller will loose all the money...

Typical, just as I was about to order the ZTE V970! I wonder how long before handsets start coming out with the new chips. There seemed to be a pretty quick shift from the MT6575 to the MT6577 last time.

Wonder if it's worth holding on a bit longer.

Default Amoled

If the AMOLED screen is as nice as that of SGS2/S3 I would go for that! Much better than the LCD's.

Do dual sim phones have both sims on at the same time or do you have to reboot into the other sim?

-tagsfordroid
The current range of Android dual sim phones have both sims on at the same time. Mostly dual standby, meaning that if one is in use the other will appear busy to the caller.

On a different note, I pulled the trigger on a Zopo ZP500. Thanks to The Solutor who mentioned the ZP100, I found the website for Zopo and picked the 500.

Same hardware, smaller (4") screen but a 2000 mAh battery upgrade is available for it and most importantly it's the only phone apart of the Alcatel Onetouch 918D discussed in this thread that can do Telstra NextG (HSDPA 850 MHz).

The 500 is replacing my aging 918D that served me well for nearly a year, but it is getting tired now and the hardware is really showing its age. Support for updates from Alcatel is pretty poor as well, only two updates since I bought the phone last year and it doesn't always work as it is pulling the update off Alcatel's servers.

Anyway, checked out the video reviews of the 500. Looks good, works fast, specs as promised and Zopomobile site offers a rooting service with the chinese apps removed for $9. For the grand total of $233 USD I'm getting the phone, screen protector, battery upgrade with new back cover to suit, rooted, all sent express to Australia.

If I was willing to wait, I could have preordered the 500+ which comes with dual core CPU (MT6577 I think), but what I'm getting for the price is miles above what I have now.

I am thinking of doing a small review when I get it. See how we go.

To answer the original question:

I have the "HTC Desire V T328 W" which is HTCs first Android dual-sim dual standby phone. Sim 1 is 3G (900,2100)/GSM, Sim 2 is GSM only. I bought mine from Mobile Phones | New, Unlocked & Cheap | MobiCity Australia

The phone is a mid priced 4.0 inch phone with limited extras, no front camera, only 5MP rear camera, no magnetometer but has pretty much everything else you would want. It is very slim/stylish and has great battery life from its 1650Mah battery. The nicest display I have seen on a mobile phone and runs Android 4.0.3. Excellent value for money also. My first ICS phone and am really enjoying it.

If HTC or Samsung would have offered a top of the range Android dual sim phone with all the extras I would have gladly bought that (are you listening HTC, Samsung?) but I think the Desire V is probably the best there is at this point in time.

I suppose a downside it that it does not support 3G 850Mah which makes it not suitable for Australia's biggest carrier Telstra (called NextG by Telstra). I use Amaysim (Optus) for data/voice and Lycamobile (Telstra GSM) for voice in many areas not covered by Optus in my state.

Hi guys,


I need a phone able to share internet signal from both sim cards to my Galaxy Note tablet. Can all the phones you are talking about here do this?

Also, I need a flawlessly working Chrome, Gmail, ICS, Facebook, GPS etc
Battery life would be also priority.

I'm really stuck on the device information of the Huawei G500 Pro, because in the etotalk site it measures 130.0 x 65 x 11.2 mm and in the merimobiles (and other sites also) it measures 12363x10.4mm.
So what is the truth ??

AFAIK dual SIM phones are never officially released in Europe, they're usually grey imported and sold on websites like Ebay. They're really intended to be sold and used here in China, where price often outweighs performance requirements when buying phones.

Hey jfbaro
At the present time I finds HTC Desire V the best one among dual SIM card phones. It has 4.0.3 android platform, appears nice and you can perform almost all task you wish to do. Give it a try.

Really?? How about work sim and personal sim? How about two carriers used in different parts of a country or when travelling outside your borders on a regular basis? If you would have bothered to read the previous 30 odd pages, many people stated their reasons for needing dual sim phones.

For included analog tv service choose the I9300.
Without analog tv is better the Lenovo A789 (with dual camera and powerful battery 2000 mah), at lower price.

last weeks news, but this is going to be quite a monster:
Samsung Galaxy Note II with dual-SIM capabilities gets spotted in the wild - Engadget

report out of China suggests one of the sim is standard SIM while the other one is MicroSim, and its going to be GSM + WCDMA, so would work with global 3G. It is also suggested that the hardware specs are going to be on par with the standard Galaxy Note 2.

I saw that "rumoured" news also with a photo of 1 normal sim and 1 micro sim slot in addition to the micro SD card slot for the Note2. I hope this is going to be a proper SamSung Note and not one of the Note-want-to-be. I am using a Samsung Note since January and I can not be more than happy with its performance. With Note2 quad core and 64 micro SD card, you can do anything with it.

I am also thinking of compromising using a dual sim adapter, which you can switch but not use simultaneously, mainly for me travelling abroad. Has any forum members had any experience with the adapter? I worry about cutting my sims! So I would prefer the no cut versions.

Thank you.

Hi folks,
any idea for a dual 3G phone that's not too expensive but not outdated?
~1GHz, 1Gig memory, ICS...
All phones I've seen on Etotalk have just one 3G interface, at least that's how I read 'G-W; G-G' in the interface description.
Sarah :-)
