Another dual sim phone has been launched in the Philippines, this time by Samsung in the form of the Galaxy Ace Duos. This Android powered phone has a 3.5-inch display and a decent enough 320 x 480 screen resolution. Available for a price of Php9,590, it generally has decent specifications for its price, with 3 GB of expandable storage and a very decent 5 MP autofocus camera with a led flash. The other specifications
There are two issues up front that prevents this phone from being a winner. The 1300 mAh battery is not a deal breaker, but at this price I would have expected a larger 1500 mAh battery. The second issue, it the operating system. This phone runs on Android 2.3, Gingerbread, which is now two generations behind the current version of Android, which is version 4.1, Jelly Bean.
For a little bit more, at Php10,990 you can get the dual SIM Lenovo P700 instead, which comes with a larger and sharper 4-inch display (480 x 800 pixel resolution), Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box, and which comes with a massive 2500 mAh battery.
