Best Dual-SIM phones of 2016 in Pakistan

Best dual SIM phones pakistan 2016

Smartphones have seen a meteoric rise to fame in the last 5-6 years particularly because of what they were able to contribute to a user’s life. While Nokia used to remain the top-dog even though Apple had come up with the iPhone and Samsung with the Corby and some other smartphones, the world was reluctant to move on from the keypad phones and embrace these new boys.

What happened afterwards? The rest as they say is history. Nokia saw one of the grandest of falls ever to grace a brand and the stocks of Apple, Samsung, HTC etc. rocketed. Nokia did make a last ditch attempt to survive the un-fathomable drop through the 808 PureView and N97 but the world was having none of it. They were simply over-awed by these newcomers.

While Dual-SIM capability wasn’t one of these super awesome features, it certainly added to their credibility. Having such functionality is definitely a plus as it brings you the luxury of having two SIM cards in one phone rather than two. Considering that mobile network coverage does stall in a lot of areas (Motorway and Northern Areas to name a few) having two SIMs on the go can be rather handy. So to help you affiliate yourself with smartphones that offer such capability, here’s a list of the 10 best Dual-SIM phones in Pakistan, as of publishing this post.
