Navigating the dual SIM jungle: Test our new filter navigation «SIM type»

Dual SIM is a crucial feature for many people looking to buy a new mobile phone. It’s rather frustrating though if you find out that your new phone supports dual SIM, but the second slot only takes either SIM or MicroSD card. To help you find a phone with the right number and type of slots, we’ve implemented a new filter: «SIM type».

With a dual SIM device, you can use two numbers on one phone at the same time. This has great advantages:

  1. Separating your work and private phone account will let you enjoy evenings that are more peaceful.
  2. You avoid horrific roaming charges. Without an additional SIM card, you rely on expensive data packages whenever you’re outside The EU, US and Canada. Using a prepaid SIM card from another country lets you make phone calls and access the internet at local rates, which are considerably lower. With a dual SIM device, you can keep this local and your home SIM in your phone and easily switch to your home SIM if free WiFi is available.
  3. You don’t have to bother fiddling about and swapping SIM cards and you don’t run the risk of losing a card (I’m speaking from my own personal experience here^^)

When smartphone manufacturers say their phone has dual SIM, this means dual SIM is supported, but when you unbox your new phone, you might still realise that it’s not possible to put in a second SIM card and use additional storage at the same time. Lifehacks such as this one works sometimes, but are rather risky.

The clever way to avoid this is by knowing exactly how many and which slots are available in a smartphone. To find this out easily for over 750 mobile phones, we’ve added the new filter «SIM type» to our filter overview for mobile phones.

No compromises: «Pure» Dual SIM mobile phones without additional storage

New mobile phones without additional internal storage options are still produced. Having said that, Xiaomi, OnePlus and Huawei models have 128 GB storage, so you probably don’t need the option for more. The following models all have an additional dual SIM slot:

  • Upulse (5.50", 32GB, Dual SIM, 13MP, Red)
  • Upulse (5.50", 32GB, Dual SIM, 13MP, Red)

The hybrids: Dual SIM devices with slot for second SIM or MicroSD card

With mobile phones with so-called hybrid slots, the choice is yours: You can either insert two dual SIM cards in the slots or you go without dual SIM capacity and insert a SIM card and a MicroSD for additional storage.

Most new smartphones from China are hybrids. Most of the mobile phones we offer are hybrids, too; currently, about 350 devices.

Das ist eine gute Sache mit dem neuem Filter.
Gibt es auch eine Möglichkeit herauszufinden ob beide Simkartenmodule auch schnelles Internet unterstützen? Manchmal wird ja nur ein Simkartenmodul mit schnellem Internet beliefert und das zweite Modul nur mit 2g oder so.

Die Ungenauigkeit der Filterdaten ist immer wieder witzig. Der Filter "Dual SIM: Nein" zeigt 334 Geraete, der Filter "SIMtyp: Single SIM" aber nur 328. Haben 6 Geraete also entweder 0 oder >2 Slots? Anders das Nokia 150: es hat scheinbar sowohl "Dual SIM: Ja" wie auch "SIMtyp: Single SIM" ;)

Finde ich super. Jetzt müsste Digitec nur noch Regler für Daten wie z.B. RAM, Speicherplatz, Taktfrequenz etc. einführen, damit man Max. und Min. definieren kann. Meistens möchte man ja ein Gerät mit mind. 16GB RAM (als Beispiel), und nicht genau 16-17.99. Es würde klicks ersparen. :)
