These are the best dual-SIM Android phones

The best Android phones 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. But with the rise of eSIM, you can now get dual-SIM connectivity in North America on just about any phone. 

The best choice at the moment is Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra. I've used a lot of phones in 2022 so far, and the S22 Ultra is my absolute favorite, and that's down to the sheer number of features on offer. The Pixel 7 Pro is a close second thanks to its clean Android interface and useful camera and software features. 

If you're looking for a more value-focused phone, you should take a look at the Galaxy S21 FE. It distills the best features of the S21 series in a more affordable package, and you're not missing out on anything here. And the fact that you get long-term software updates is the icing on the cake. 

And if you want a small phone, the Zenfone 9 is the ideal choice by a huge margin. It is easily usable one-handed, has powerful hardware on par with the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and takes great photos. The best part is that the battery lasts well over a day, and you get clean software.
