Example, SIM card A and SIM card B, both SIM are LTE capable. A in SIM slot 1, B in SIM slot 2. If i'm going to use SIM A for data, I will choose SIM A to access data in the settigns menu and set it to "2G/3G/4G Auto" or "3G only" network mode for a faster connection. Then SIM B will automatically in "2G only" mode. Now, if my SIM A reached my allocated bandwidth, but my SIM B has plenty of data remains, or SIM A doesn't have a good LTE signals or has a data network problem, I will just set SIM B to access data in the settings menu, and change network modes like "3G only" or "2G/3G/4G Auto" mode for faster signal connections, automatically SIM slot 1 will turn to "2G only" mode, and I'm done. Ready to surf anyway I want. So the convenience of just switching it in the menu to access either SIMS is great. Unlike other phones that has a dedicated SIM slots for each network modes. And opening of the back case is you know, not that convenient just to switch the SIM cards, it may also cause trouble and not so fast to do. So it's a great idea.
AnonD-281598, 10 Jun 2015So yes, it is not Both LTE active. Other sim is for only "2G only" mode.Good explain... thanks...
So yes, it is not Both LTE active. Other sim is for only "2G only" mode.
i'll give you an example. there's only "2" setups to set for both SIM slots. (setup 1) either one SIM slot is ALWAYS for "2G only" network mode (setup 2) and the other sim slot is either for "2G only", "3G only", "2G/3G Auto", "2G/3G/4G Auto" network mode. example scenario 1: sim 1 is "2G/3G/4G Auto" mode, automatically sim 2 is "2G only" mode. you can't force to use other than "2G only" on the sim slot 2. example scenario 2: SIM 1 is "3G only" mode, automatically SIM 2 is "2G only" mode. again no other choices other than "2G only" mode. example scenario 3: SIM 1 is "2G only" mode, then in SIM 2 you can set either "2G only", "2G/3G Auto", "3G only", "2G/3G/4G Auto" modes. but can you use both the data service of both sim simultaneously? no. there's a setting in the menu to pick which one sim slot you will turn on the data. so in example scenario 1, you can choose the SIM 1 for data because it can pick 4G signals for fast connection. but you can choose SIM 2 to turn on data but it is so slow, because its only a "2G only" mode connection.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2015Yes I am using G4 Dual.So the 2nd SIM is 3G or what? thanks
i will try my best to explain the best that i can about dual sim capabilities of this phone.
"LG G4 DUAL-LTE"
as the name itself, yes it is a dual sim phone, capable of using a 2 sim cards.
now, is it dual standby? yes.
is it dual active? yes.
but, is it both active LTE? no.
but it can both GSM only active. it cant also both 3G active.
one sim must SET only GSM, and the other sim must SET 2g/3g/4G function. it cant use both LTE/3G Only simultaneously.
but, why is the name DUAL-LTE?
because, both sim slot at the back of the phone, capable of accepting of up to LTE network band.
other phones has also the function of dual sim, but in the back of the phone, there is a DEDICATED SIM slot, for use for 2G/3G/4G and other sim slot for 2G only (usually the SIM 2 slot)
now, how do i set the other sim slot to 2G/3G/4G and the other one to 2G only, well it's in the settings menu. there's also a setting in the menu of what sim slot you will use for data connection.
so whats the point of this DUAL-LTE of LG G4 to other Dual SIM that has a dedicated slot for 2G only and 2G/3G/4G bands? or any difference? the answer, CONVENIENCE and also RELIABILITY. because, you dont have to open your back case just to switch between your sim cards if your both cards has LTE function. you just set the settings and you're done. and while you are working on the hardware, it will not caused you trouble once you are taking off the sim to the slots. as the sim slots are fragile because of the contacts.
so is it good? for me, yes, ofcourse. well worth the function, its an upgrade for the ones has a dedicated sim slot for both bands.
so, there you have it. i hope i explained it well.
I'm Riba Sanchez from the Philippines, proud of my LG G4. have a Gre4T day!

Second sim in LG G4 Dual has GSM/WCDMA(3G) but not LTE support. Its awesome phone. Display is really awesome and decent battery life.
I love this one.awesome phone.this phone has everything which u required.thanks lg to make this type of device.
I need to change my G3 since the 2nd sim is ONLY GSM.
Did someone bought this phone (HK version) that can say us if the 2nd sim is also LTE?
Thanks in advance!
yesha, 02 Jun 2015what is the difference of LG G4 and LG G4 dual?(execpt from the simcard slot)..thx ^_^the word dual
This is one of the rare flagship smartphone which gives the Dual SIM model with full specifications at the time of launch itself.
The LG G4 Dual (H818N) smartphone supports upto 2TB of memory storage. At present, I don't see any other phone which supports this kind of memory.
The screen size (5.5") is big enough.
The RAM (3GB) is good.
The camera (16MP/8MP) are great.
Wi Fi support for dual band (ac) is great.
The LG G4 Dual is enabled for Wireless (Qi) charging, which is great.
It would have been excellent if there was a built-in Stylus also available for this phone (as in the case of the Samsung Note 4 Dual which has the S Pen Stylus).
But overall, the LG G4 Dual flagship smartphone is a great phone with excellent features.
