Dual in the crown

Computer Shopper - - LETTERS -

I find my­self writ­ing to you to thank you for your timely re­view of bud­get mo­bile phones (Shop­per 353). I’ve used a THL W9, a £220 dual-SIM An­droid phone with a 5.7in screen, sadly no longer avail­able, which has served me well since Septem­ber 2013. I’ve been look­ing to re­place this be­cause the rear cam­era lens has be­come scratched and un­us­able.

I want a dual-SIM phone to avoid car­ry­ing both a work and a pri­vate phone around, so was in­ter­ested to see some phones in your re­view, such as the Honor 6X, Len­ovo P2 and One­plus 3T, which have dual-SIM ca­pa­bil­ity. How­ever, it wasn’t un­til delv­ing into the fine de­tail on the in­ter­net that it was re­vealed that the sec­ond SIM card oc­cu­pies the mi­croSD card slot so you can mount ei­ther two SIMs or one SIM and an SD card, but not two SIMs and an SD card.

I even­tu­ally opted for a Mo­torola Moto G4, which al­though not de­scribed in the re­view, is avail­able with two SIM slots and a mi­cro-SD card slot, and thus far ap­pears a very good phone.

Thanks again for an ex­cel­lent magazine. Tim
