Features and specifications

Most of the Chinese phones we have reviewed are dual-SIM With dual standby, although sometimes, however, this second SIM comes at the expense of the microSD slot – it is often one or the other. The number of phones that support 4G in both SIM slots is increasing, but phones with dual standby will ask you to select one or the other for the data and not both.

The fact that a Chinese telephone supports 4G does not necessarily mean that it works with European operator networks. It is advisable to check the frequency bands of a phone before buying it because Chinese phones often do not connect to the 800MHz band.
