• Recently launched smartphones with dual SIM capabilities are late to the party and fail to be user friendly
New Delhi, October 2, 2018 : Keeping in pace with today’s ever-evolving technology landscape, several smartphone makers have announced dual SIM capabilities, delivering unprecedented flexibility to its consumers. While certain flagship devices have only just launched this functionality, Huawei has been long offering the dual SIM feature across several of its devices to suit different budgets, offering a wide variety of choice to consumers. Huawei’s customer centricity and focus on innovation at times like this has led Huawei to grab the number two spot in the global smartphone market share in Q2 this year.
A dual SIM function allows users to have two SIMs, for example, one for work and one for personal use on a single device and enables them to switch between both easily and efficiently. Dual SIM phones also suit people who regularly travel between two countries. In these situations having two SIMs allows one to milk the value of both plans, while keeping their minimum monthly spend low. Recently released flagships also feature dual VoLTE; however, this will only be accessible via an update, which won’t be available until later.
However, when it comes to the much hyped eSIM or integrated SIM, it requires a wireless service plan that can be challenging as not all carriers support eSIM usage, hence defeating the purpose of providing customers with a dual SIM capability option. With Huawei P20 Pro’s user-friendly dual SIM option, users can easily switch SIM cards wherever and whenever, without notifying their network carriers, making the process simple and easy-to-use.
Majority of the smartphone players do not have this convenience as, when a current dual SIM user is subscribed to carriers that do not support the eSIM technology, one will have to either subscribe to a new service plan from a third carrier, or terminate an existing contract, and complications such as these can entail a significant cost.
Verdict : Huawei P20 Pro allows users to swiftly manage their dynamic lifestyles while balancing their work and personal life calls and needs. Keeping the customer at the heart of everything it does, Huawei P20 Pro supports easy dual SIM usage without any complications and continues to lead as an accessible and manageable smartphone. Until then, wait and watch for Huawei’s next flagship launch that is expected to have even superior consumer benefits.
