A ArmbrusterThe Galaxy Note 8 Duos is not a real 2 Sim phone if you have to decide to have a memory card or Sim card
Rashid BreedyIt is a real dual SIM phone. You can select which SIM to use at any time. Actually if someone is calling you to SIM1 and you have no reception then call jumps to SIM2 automatically.
A ArmbrusterIf I have a memory card fitted I cannot fit a second Sim card. So it is not a real 2 Sim Phone.
Rashid BreedySo you decide if you want more memory space or dual SIM. But the phone is dual SIM otherwise you wouldn't be able to put 2 SIM cards at the same time. So saying is not a real dual SIM card, is not technically correct.
