My friends tell me dual sim phones signal strength is very bad. Is it the same with s5 duos?? or do we really get fast 4g in s5 duos same like the single sim variant. Coz i want to insert data sim in one slot and regular sim in other. Also does this phone heats up or lags a lot?? Plz guys help me as i am confused between s5 and note 3. But i am attaracted towards s5 duos because i wont have to carry my mifi always.

You can only remove the network provider logo of one SIM from the status bar if you disable that SIM.

I use the first sim for calling and texting while the other for 3g internet but everytime i turn on the internet (3G) ,even though the bars are full i cant seem to call/text or recieve calls and texts using the 1st sim most of the time.
Secondly , is there anyway to remove SIM1 logo from the top status bar??
Murtaza, 30 Oct 2014Can HSDPA (3G) and LTE (4G) can be used from secondary SIM Port? Actually I want to use 3G/... moreIf you have two 3G sims in your ports then sim 2 will work at 2G. Sim 2 will always be relagated to 2G if you have a superior G band chip in the port of sim 1.
Can HSDPA (3G) and LTE (4G) can be used from secondary SIM Port?
Actually I want to use 3G/4G on my sim in secondary port and not from primary one.

If you have studied science or at least you have some general knowledge, you must know that going deeper in water means, increasing pressure, so this device can bear pressure only upto 1 meter, this is why they mentioned 1 meter.

Hi guys, the Samsung S5 Duos SMG900FD in middle east (Oman & UAE), it's dual standby not a dual active , I bought one and I tested it, the concept here is the phone diverts the calls from Sim1 to Sim2 and vice versa , if you want to check that , go to settings and check for the divert calls for both sims , you will see that.
So if your operator charges the calls on divert , when you are on Sim1 talking and received a call on Sim2 and answered it , the Sim2 will be charged, please check the credit on both sims.
In Oman, Omantel & Nawras they charge your Sim for diverting a call.
In UAE Etisalat & du they charge the divert call to other operator but not on same operator Sims.
So SMG900FD is a dual standby not dual active.
