Best dual-SIM Android phones 2024

The best dual-SIM Android phones let you seamlessly use two SIM cards at the same time. Dual-SIM phones have always been popular in Asian countries, but they're now starting to gain momentum in Western markets too. With a dual-SIM phone, you can still use your primary SIM and pick up a secondary SIM (when traveling) to use on the same device, thus negating the need to carry two phones.

Many of the best modern Android phones can use two SIMs, but they usually have only one physical SIM slot. This includes smartphones like Pixels that support eSIMs, essentially making them dual-SIM devices. This widens the pool for anyone who's in the market for the best dual-SIM Android phones.

These are some of the best dual-SIM Android phones in the market right now

The best Android smartphones all come with a dual-SIM card slot, but because of the carrier-driven ecosystem in the U.S., phone manufacturers like Samsung disable this feature in the region. However, with eSIMs getting increasingly popular, you can now get dual-SIM connectivity in North America on just about any smartphone.

The best choice at the moment is the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra. I've used a lot of phones in 2024 so far, and the S24 Ultra is one of my favorite, and that's down to the sheer number of features on offer. The Pixel 8 Pro is a close second, thanks to its clean Android interface, AI-powered enhancements, and Google's promise of seven years of software features. Not to mention, it's the best phone for photography of any sort, thanks to the Tensor G3 SoC and awesome triple-lens rear camera setup.

If you're in the market for a more value-focused phone, you should take a look at the Galaxy A54 5G from Samsung's Galaxy A lineup. It distills the best features of the S23 series in a more affordable package, and you're not missing out on any (major) features here. The fact that you get long-term software updates is icing on the cake.

Lastly, if you want a small but mighty Android phone, the Zenfone 10 from ASUS is the ideal choice by a huge margin. It's easily usable one-handed, has top-of-the-line hardware on par with flagships from 2023, and takes great photos. The best part is that the battery lasts well over a day, and you get a clean software experience.
