Recommended site for Mobile and Smartphone Specifications Specsburner.com

[edit] What's not in the table

The HTC Desire G7 is rumored to be a dual sim Android phone, but it is not listed because (not actually running Android OS). Is also omitted from the table because the three Onyx phones seem to have never been produced, despite being announced in Aug. 2009.

[edit] to do

The following potential candidate devices should possibly be added when someone finds the time. Ideally contributors would first verify that a device is not a conterfeit Chinese knockoff with bogus specs. (If any are fake, please add a strike through).

[edit] phones with dual-sim full active ("DSFA")

  • ZTE u960
  • HTC T528w
  • HTC One M7 802w
  • Samsung Galaxy Duos (Y, Note 2 and ACE)
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 i9502
  • NGM Droid Duo
  • CoolPAD 7728

[edit] phones without DSFA

  • Viewsonic v350
  • ZTE v970
  • Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562
  • all phones with a MT6575 or MT6577 chipset (e.g. Jiayu G3, Lenovo P770/P700i, Lenovo Lephone A660)

[edit] Which bands do I need?

For detailed GSM band coverage, see the world GSM coverage map. For CDMA coverage.
