I am lucky enough enough to be able to upgrade to a S9 and wondered if there are any drawbacks to having a dual sim. I understand that i have to remove the SD card so those apps and data won't be available, but unless there are any differences I can't see why Samsung produce two models at the same price
My concern is that a dual sim runs a different version of the OS so may be slower in getting updates or Android P.
Anyone got first hand experience?
I do occasionally travel overseas and carrying two phones is a pain
They'e not all dual sim. You can buy a dual sim direct from Samsung.
If u look on YouTube there are workarounds for 2 Sims and extra storage. Ive not tried it yet though. Might do with an old SIM
Both phones work all the time. Only one can use data at a time. It works great for me for that reason. Choosing which phone to call from and use data from is easy.
Hi. You say they can’t both work with 4G at the same time. Will both sims be able to receive calls and texts at the same time ? Thanks
I have been playing around with my S9+ hybrid sim and it is superb.
I have put in my normal 3 contract sim and a new Vodafone payg sim and it is all very seamless and well implimented. You have full and easy control over which sim you use for everything and it just seems to work. The Three website has dire warnings that their sim will not work if it is not the primary sim, but that appears to be wrong, it works whichever you choose as the primary sim.
Losing the sd card is not good, but it is manageable now the base memory has doubled.
This adds so much flexibility, what is there not to love!
If you have S9 plus dual or hybrid sim, can you confirm if both sims are active at the same time?
Also which model number is that ?
Does anyone have Wifi Calling enabled on their hybrid?
I know that the network need to push settings down to the phone if you do not buy it directly from them, but not sure if the dual sim feature will interfere with this.
I am looking at getting a Samsung S9 Hybrid, but really need wifi calling to work as signal is not good on most networks where i live.
