Best dual-SIM phones available in the UK

Dual-SIM phones used to only commonly be found in other parts of the world, but now there are a number of them available in the UK, with ever more arriving, including many high-end and high-profile handsets.

Having a dual SIM card slot in your phone has a number of potential benefits. For example, you might have one work SIM and one personal one. Or one for use in the UK and one with better international rates for use abroad.

They won’t be useful to everyone, but if you carry two phones now or can think of situations where a different number or network would be helpful, then a dual-SIM phone is well worth considering. With that in mind we’ve created this guide to the best dual-SIM smartphones currently available in the UK.

Note: Some phones are sold in both dual and single-SIM versions, so before buying any double check that you’re getting the right model.

5. Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is likely to be the most appealing Samsung flagship for most people – it has a bigger screen and battery than the standard Samsung Galaxy S22, but isn’t as expensive as the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Despite its lower price, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus still has high-end power from its Exynos 2200 chipset and 8GB of RAM, and it also supports 5G, has a great triple-lens camera setup, and – yes – supports multiple SIM cards.

You can use either two removable SIM cards or one removable SIM and one eSIM, which allows you to change network without changing SIM card.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus also has a 6.6-inch 1080 x 2340 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, plus a 4,500mAh battery, water resistance, and a stylish design.

4. iPhone 14 Pro

The iPhone 14 Pro probably doesn’t need any introduction, but if you were wondering whether it has dual-SIM support – it does. As with many other phones though it offers a nano SIM slot and an eSIM – the latter of which isn’t removable.

Dual-SIM credentials aside, the iPhone 14 Pro is an excellent smartphone, packing an enormous amount of power, and one of the best camera setups you’ll find on a phone – particularly for users who just want to point and shoot.

The 6.1-inch 1179 x 2556 120Hz OLED screen is great too, the design is iconic yet fresh (thanks to the addition of a Dynamic Island), and you get 5G, Face ID, and access to Apple’s well-stocked App Store.

This isn’t quite the best iPhone – you’ll find that below – but it’s very close, and a little bit more affordable.

3. OnePlus 10 Pro

If you want two removable SIM cards rather than having an eSIM for one, then the OnePlus 10 Pro will suit you well, as that’s exactly what it supports. But on the flip side there’s no eSIM here.

It’s also the best phone OnePlus has ever made at the time of its launch, with a sharp 6.7-inch 1440 x 3216 AMOLED screen that has a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support.

The OnePlus 10 Pro is powerful too, with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and up to 12GB of RAM, and it has an impressive triple-lens camera made in conjunction with Hasselblad.

The battery is both big at 5,000mAh and very fast to charge, at 80W with wires or 50W without, and the OnePlus 10 Pro supports 5G, has a water-resistant build, and a slick interface that’s one of the best you’ll find on an Android phone.

2. iPhone 14 Pro Max

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is the best iPhone you can buy, which also means it will be the best phone for most Apple fans. It’s expensive, but you sure get a lot for your money – including a nano SIM / eSIM combination for dual-SIM use.

Beyond that, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch 1290 x 2796 120Hz OLED screen with HDR10 support, top-tier power from its A16 Bionic chipset, 5G, and a triple-lens camera that’s among the best you’ll find on any handset.

That camera includes a 48MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, and 12MP telephoto (with 3x optical zoom). There’s also a LiDAR scanner for judging depth, and it’s a setup that excels in most circumstances.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max has great battery life too, from its 4,323mAh battery, and it supports wireless charging and has a greater amount of water resistance than most phones, as it’s rated for depths of up to 6 metres for up to 30 minutes.

With a new design that ditches the notch in place of a far more useful Dynamic Island too, this is both a great phone and a big upgrade on the previous model.

1. Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is arguably the best phone you can buy, so as it’s a dual-SIM device it’s also arguably the best dual-SIM one.

Like the rest of the S22 range but unlike a lot of other phones, this lets you use either two physical, removable SIM cards, or one physical SIM and one eSIM – though it’s worth noting that not all networks support eSIMs at the time of writing.

In any case, the Galaxy S22 Ultra stands out in a number of ways, from its quad-lens camera (including a 10x optical zoom lens) to its superb 6.8-inch 1440 x 3088 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz variable refresh rate and HDR10+ support.

There’s plenty of power too of course, thanks to its Exynos 2200 chipset and up to 12GB of RAM, plus a big 5,000mAh battery, wireless charging, water resistance, 5G, an included stylus, and a stylish – albeit bulky – build.

Conclusion

So there you have it. While these five handsets aren’t the only dual-SIM phones they are arguably the best.

They’re all high-end but suited to different tastes. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is a great all-round Android flagship that strikes a good balance between price and features. Then there’s the iPhone 14 Pro, which does a similar thing for iOS.

In third place it’s the OnePlus 10 Pro, with a slick interface, top specs, and a marginally lower price than some comparable phones.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is in second – this is the best iPhone and very nearly the best phone. But our number one choice is the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. It’s enormously expensive, but truly has no compromises in its design, specs, or features.
