I can't understand why Samsung has not released the S4 Dual Sim (I.9502) outside of China.

There have been so many people asking for this phone.

In Europe the carriers are "playing down" the distribution of dual sim phones because most people have contracts and it will produce a conflict of interest for the carriers revenue.

I travel to China frequently and I've examined the S4 I.9502 Dual Sim. For it to work flawlessly outside China it would have to be flashed BUT it cannot be guaranteed that you will get the software in the EU to run 2 sim cards in standby.

I could be wrong about this but I was not willing to buy as its not cheap in Shanghai. Nearly 1,000 US Dollars.

If anyone out there knows about this please respond.

Thank you!

The competition is tough for any company be it Samsung, Micromax etc. Check out LG Optimus G Pro it is very good. You will not be required to look for anything else.

vbykcoldfire2005I am No Fan of Micromax , Never used one nor will use in future , But Many Cheaper Smart Phones are leading to Better Internet Penetration in India , India is ranked 3rd now in Internet usage and growth is mostly from Smartphones

Many are opting for Big screen Phones in India , Nokia is losing ground in feature Phones Big time in India , many are opting for Smart phones which are available for 20 to 30 $ more over Feature Phones .
