Michael Benjaminso If I Read your specifications right if you are on sim one and using Lte sim 2 will not be on 3g only 2 g so no use in Australia or any other country that has ended their 2 G network .. if so that very poor
waglenutIt is Dual Standby not a Dual Active. It is not really useful.
Armin SchmidtDual Active would be better of course. And you also lose the SD card option, when you use a second SIM card. But nevertheless the Dual SIM model is useful: You can use one SIM for business purposes and the second one for your private calls! I have a Lumia 950 Dual SIM phone this way. (And this phone is Dual Active and provides an ADDITIONAL SD card slot.) 🙂
