Best dual-SIM smartphones

Dual-SIM smartphones give you the opportunity to have two di erent phone networks on a single piece of hardware, saving you money and also the nuisance of carrying around two di erent gadgets with you.

The demand for dual-SIM smartphones has risen dramatically in recent years, and the market is fi nally starting to catch up. Here are some of our favourites of those available. Pricing information is from Amazon, but shop around and you may find a better deal.

Motorola Moto G
Motorola's Moto G is still the best budget smartphone around. It's got great build quality, an excellent screen and decent cameras, and is limited only in the storage department and a lack of 4G support. A great buy.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Dual-SIM
The Galaxy S4 mini is a great mid-range option, off ering the same styling as the full-blown S4, but with a cheaper price tag. The cameras are good, but the screen and storage are both under par.

HTC One Dual SIM 802w
The HTC One has superb performance and excellent build quality, spoiled only slightly by running hot in use. You can't fault the feature set, and in terms of audio visual output it is unsurpassed.

Sony Xperia C Dual SIM C2305
Sony's Xperia C is a 5in smartphone with an 8Mp camera. With a 1.2GHz quad-core processor inside and running Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, it's 8.9mm thick and weighs just 153g.

Acer Liquid S1 Dual SIM
With a 5.7in (1280x720, 258ppi) screen the Acer Liquid S1 is a beast of a handset, yet it's still just 8mm thick. Inside you'll fi nd a 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Acer's Float UI is a nice addition.
