    Hi guys, I'm originally from Ireland but have recently moved to the US.

    I don't want to carry around 2 phones with me everywhere, so I'm looking to get rid of my old phone (HTC One X) and replace with a dual sim option. I have bought a Tmobile 'pay as you go' sim, so my choice will obviously need to work with that

    I've been trying to navigate the minefield of Chinese android phones out there. I've heard some of them are great; the fact that they're comparatively cheap is an added bonus.

    I was looking at Quad core options @ 1.5GHZ plus, but I notice that some manufacturers are beginning to release octo core phones.

    Would anyone have any suggestions on any makes/models? I've read about the newly released Zopo ZP998 (8 core)
    I've also heard good things about the quad core NEO N003 - there are so many other options though, it's hard to know where to begin.

    If any of you have any suggestions/advice I'd be so grateful!

    Cheers

    1) Dual SIM for TMobil and? The only other choice here is AT&T. Why 2 plans? (AT&T has better coverage.)

    2) Most of the Chinese phones we see posts about here are asking for infoemation because there's no data, no customer service, no tech support and no one is developing anything for them. Sure you save some money if you never have a problem and never want to do anything to the phone (root, flash a ROM, etc.), but if you do, you're wasting money.

    Sorry I forgot to mention. I will be using the dual sim with my Tmobile (US) sim and my Irish (international) sim. I've gone with Tmobile as it seemed to be the cheapest 'no contract' pay as you go option.

    Try looking at a Samsung Galaxy Win, or something from LG (they also have dual sim phones). At least those two are major Android manufacturers.
