I copied the following from the downloaded PDF file "Activating SIM or USIM cards, On the Home screen, tap Apps → Settings → SIM card manager. Drag one or both of the
switches for the SIM or USIM cards to the right.
If both cards are activated, you can receive calls and messages on each card. However,
if you are on a call using one card, the other card cannot be used to receive new calls". IT IS DUAL STAND BY NOT DUAL ACTIVE. Samsung state this is to save battery drain.

Please Clarify the below queries...

(1)... Any of the 2 SIMs can receive call if the phone is idle...?

(2)... Both SIMs can be used for calling and text just like Galaxy Grand 2 Duos...?

(3)...If one SIM is having Postpaid plan and on International Roaming, while the 2nd SIM is having prepaid plan with local network...then can both be set as active all the time...?

Before this wonderfull handy, I used Iphone 5 and a Samsung S4 mini dual sim I9192. Except the constructin materials, witch ar not looking premier like in the Apple products, I can tell you it a very good phone.
It's not dual active, but you have an option named SIM DUAL PERMANENT ACTIVE. This will actuvate the sim options forwarding and the phone will be able to act like a dualsum active phone ( only for plan, in Ro it can't be used for prepay sim).
It's LTE, for the both sim's.
Good batery backup, whole day with wifi activated and 1.5 h with 4g, with 5 email acconnts, some Internet and some Facebook. I take it from charging at 7 am and at 9 pm it still has 46%.
Very good camera, clear pictures but a little bit to saturate colors.
Very fast procesor.
It worth, but a little bit to expensive.
Overall, it's a very good handy, with a lot of features and a very stable software. Ios remains the best software, but Android is more versatile and customizable.

The phone is dual standby and NOT dual active. The reason for this is that it saves battery life between recharges. Dual active phones drain batteries way too much (basically you are using two phones on the one battery with dual active)you can however receive msgs on one sim whilst talking on the other, but you CANNOT receive a phone call whilst talking on the other sim.

I have been told that it's NOT dual active, but the phone has the ability to receive text on one sim whilst you are talking on the other.

It is a Dual Active,but not Full active Phone. If you want to receive call on one SIM card while you are using the other you have to forward calls.

I bought one fron axiom telecom cost 2,599dhs. with 200 dhs. free voucher now is on charging. What will happen if the 1st line is Etisalat and 2nd is Du?I think it should not be a problem coz each sim has differnt package(i forgot to ask the seller).
