Do you fancy a cheap dual SIM Android phone?

I have a thing about dual SIM phones. When I recently reviewed the Acer Liquid Gallant Duo I was amazed at the implementation of the dual SIM. Being able to choose between SIMs made my daily swapping of devices and SIM cards a whole lot easier.

Do you fancy a cheap dual SIM Android phone?Expansys have been in touch to let us know about the Acer Z110 Duo in either black or white has come into stock. The Acer Z110 Duo is a entry level device with basic spec for £89.99 inc delivery and VAT. Here is the spec of the Z110 Duo:

It runs Gingerbread, has a rather small battery, a weak camera and not very much room for apps. So if your desperately after a cheap dual SIM device then this could be for you.

Personally I would like to see something like the Galaxy Note II with a dual SIM option.

  • How does the dual-sim-ness work? Do you have to select a SIM, or can it use the best signal? Can it fall back to the second SIM if the first has no reception? Can you use a roaming SIM for receiving and a local SIM for outgoing?

    So many questions!

    I got my missus the gallant duo, and if its the same, either both sims can be active or just one. With both active, a call to either sim and the phone rings. you can select specific sims to be used for data, outgoing sms, calls or set it to ask which one each time….it works very well. As for one sim for outgoing yes you can specify the one you want to use, but for incoming, it depends on what number the person calling you calls I imagine (sim 1 or sim 2)

    Samsung do a good range of dual sim “duos” mobiles. I currently use a Galaxy Ace Duos. It runs Gingerbread, but thats ok – its very stable and reliable with the dual sim operation. There are two sim slots, but only the first one runs 3G; the second uses 2g. However, thats just fine for the principal use of roaming – you just put the local sim into slot one to use data, and the roaming sim into slot two. The phone can receive calls on either or both sims. Outgoing calls can be set to one sim by default, or selected by simple pull-down menu on the home screen. Contacts manager sees both sims, and they are both included in storage and copying options. Texts are easily selectable as well. There are lots of ringtone and indication options to differentiate the sims and where a call/text is coming in.

    I travel on business and have four primary sims for voice calls. Instead of carrying four phones, I can carry two identical phones and one charger. Works very well.
