The benefits of a dual-SIM phone
Mobile phones have come a long way from their early days. Right now, they can practically rival most PCs when it comes to processing power or the amount of RAM. Still, there’s one puzzling detail that still hasn’t changed, and it’s not easy to realize why that’s the case.
I’m talking about SIM cards. You see, even nowadays, most mobiles are stuck with just a single-SIM card slot, and that can be pretty annoying to business minded people, or us, travelers. Don’t get me wrong, there are still plenty of dual-SIM phones around, but considering the benefits they bring, it’s a miracle these devices aren’t even more popular. You can’t think of any reasons why the dual-SIM phones are superior? Check this out!
You’ll always have great coverage
There’s nothing more annoying than having to deal with low signal strength in the year 2018! Well, considering how intense the battle for top phone carriers is, I guess we shouldn’t really be all that surprised. However, with a dual-SIM phone, you can have the best of both worlds. If you ever notice that your signal strength is running low, simply switch to your other card, and chances are that the situation will improve drastically. Naturally, this will mean that you’ll have to pay for two data plans as well, but some people would be more than happy to accept this arrangement.
Now you might not agree that having excellent coverage is all that important, but just imagine if you lived in an area where you constantly had poor signal strength. Basically, your phone would be rendered useless. Let’s also mention that having poor signal can dramatically eat away at your battery life, and we all know how frustrating that can be.
Don’t believe in the lies
It’s a well spread rumor that dual-SIM devices have a reduced battery life. The truth is that this is nothing more than a myth. While it did have some merit in the early days, those problems are a thing of the past now. Believe me, you won’t even feel a difference.
Where is my second phone?
Yep, this is a question you won’t ever need to ask again. We know how hectic life can get, and take it from my personal experience, the more you can simplify it, the better. Not to mention the fact that it will make your life easier regarding storage space. Seriously, with the size of the modern phones these days, it’s getting increasingly difficult to put two of them in a single pocket. A nice dual-SIM device solves this problem in an instant.
No need to worry about your data plans
You’ve probably heard a bunch of horror stories regarding the costs of international calls. Don’t become one of those individuals. Instead, prior to going abroad, simply buy a separate travel SIM, and you’re good to go. No need to turn off your phone and replace the existing SIM card any more. With one click of a finger, just switch to the travel SIM once you cross the border, and make as many phone calls as your heart desires.
It offers greater flexibility
All dual-SIM devices come unlocked, which means that you can use any network of your preference. This leaves you free to check out all offers, and perhaps find the two data plans that work perfectly together. Most carriers have special plans set around the number of free minutes or SMS once can receive per month, so pick and choose wisely, and possibly combine the two together for best results.
You can use one as a backup
Have you ever deleted a certain number by accident? I know I have, and that happened just when I needed it the most. Furthermore, SIM cards can sometimes burn out, thus leaving your phonebook empty of any contacts. However, by having a separate SIM card as well, you can always make a copy of your existing numbers just in case.
