My biggest wish for smartphones this year is not what you might think. It’s not for better battery life (although that’s an ongoing wish for every new phone). It’s not for a better camera. And it’s not for removable storage or memory. It’s actually for dual SIM card features with full network support for every device.
Yes. Every. Device. Well, at least for flagships.
Being in the career field that I am in, which is a Social Media Coordinator and my hobby of being a blogger/ YouTuber, it would be AMAZING to have dual SIM card slots in all devices. Don’t get me wrong, I love phones and geek out having multiple phones around me, but for practical purposes I would much rather be able to have my personal and work number in one device. At times it’s just a pain to have two phones to carry around.
To take things a little further, I wish Verizon would get on the GSM train and forget about CDMA. I am a Verizon unlimited data user. I don’t plan to give up that service for a while not just for the unlimited data, but for the best coverage in my area. Both my personal and work numbers are Verizon. If Verizon was a GSM network I would be able to use phones like the NUU Mobile Z8 that does have dual LTE SIM support. That being said is what leads me to my next point.
Full network support in smartphones is AWESOME! Of recent flagship devices, the Motorola Nexus 6 was leading the pack. Soon after the Moto X Pure Edition and Nexus 2015 editions all having the ability to use the phones on any major network. Truly fully unlocked. No matter what carrier you are using you can pop that SIM in and go.
There are a number of phones out there that I would love to use, but I can’t due to the fact that most of em only support GSM networks. For example, the new Honor 5X that only costs $199 off contract would be great to use, not to mention it does have dual SIM support.
Shoot, the Nextbit Robin wasn’t on my radar until they announced making a CDMA/ Verizon compatible version. But how much better would the Robin be if it was just made to support all networks? Maybe the next Nextbit phone will be have full network support and save the headache of making two types of phones.
Long story short, I expect cameras, battery life, and all the other fun features to get better every year; but a game changer would be what my biggest wish for smartphones; I would love to see more devices have dual SIM card support with full network support to go along with it.
