Why you should get a DUAL-SIM phone

Dual-SIM phones have been around for a while now but, to protect revenue, most networks around the globe do not sell them, instead favouring the conventional Single SIM models. With advances in Dual-SIM technology and with amazing SIM-only deals buying a dual SIM phone has become much more compelling. 

Here are nine of the benefits of buying a Dual-SIM Phone:

1) One phone to rule them all. If you have more than one SIM card, you no longer need to worry about carrying two phones at once. There is also no need to fuss about switching SIM cards, often at the risk of misplacing the SIM that is not in use.

2) Dual-SIM phones are SIM Free. This means they are not locked to a specific network and you can sign up to any provider you like. You are free to use a Travel SIM when you travel internationally and still keep your local number active in case of business or emergency. All this without having to worry about swapping SIM cards, unlocking your phone or even having to buy a new one.

3) Separate work and play. Have a SIM card for business and another SIM for personal use. Dual-SIM phones are intelligent and allow you to select which number you want to phone or text from and will even let you know which number an incoming call or text is coming to. You will always know if it’s a business or personal before making that call or receiving that text.

4) Stress-free expense claims. If you are required to submit a company expense claim for your work calls, you can now split them over two SIM cards. No more slaving over phone bills with a highlighter and a calculator to work out what’s what.

5) Get the best out of two different deals. If you’ve found a plan that offers a good deal for calls and texts but another that offers better value for data, you can sign up for both plans and make the most out of each of them. Dual-SIM phones now even let you select which SIM you want to be set as default for each service, making it hassle-free. 

6) Better network coverage. Networks can provide 100% network coverage everywhere. Often, where one network has limited signal, another may have excellent coverage.  Being with two different networks increases your likelihood of coverage – especially if you live in or travel through rural areas. Some dual-SIM phones even support Dual-SIM 4G offering you faster data speeds by processing data from both SIM cards at the same time.

7) Never miss a call. A dual-SIM phone lets you talk on one line and still receive calls from the other. You can pause and switch between calls instead of having the second call go straight to voicemail.

8) Save with a Travel SIM. With a dual SIM phone, you can take advantage of cheaper rates overseas by having a local travel SIM. Be done with huge international roaming bills for good.

9) App-Twin. This is our my favourite innovation in Dual SIM technology. Newer Dual SIM phones support App-Twin, allowing you to load two versions of the same app. – one for each number. If you need a WhatsApp account for each number or need to run multiple social media accounts (eg: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for work and personal, you can have two of each application running on your phone at the same time. No more posting personal pictures on your company profile.

Want to save on your contract bill? A SIM-only contract may be your answer!

SIM-only deals

A SIM-only deal offers a package of minutes, texts and mobile data for a monthly cost, much the same as a traditional mobile phone contract. The difference, however, is that you BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) and don’t get a new handset; you get the SIM… only!

So, why should you opt for a SIM-only contract?

Well firstly, SIM-only deals tend to be cheaper, as with traditional contracts you’re paying a premium each month within your agreement to pay off the actual cost of your phone PLUS interest. So, with a SIM-only deal (i.e. without getting a new phone) you’ll save money each month. On top of the savings, going SIM-only means that you can focus on getting the best deal to suit your usage needs – rather than just dealing with the tariffs available to ensure you get the handset you want.

 

The Advantages of SIM-Only

SIM-only deals are fast becoming one of the most popular options when getting a new phone contract. Compared to traditional mobile phone contracts, SIM-only deals have many advantages.

SIM-only deals tend to be cheaper. New handsets are expensive, and as you’re not forking out for a handset with your contract, networks don’t need to charge you as much for their services, which brings your monthly payments down.

Another advantage of going SIM-only is that it’s easier to pass the credit check. If you’ve ever been turned down for a phone contract in the past, opting for a SIM-only deal might be the best solution for getting the phone and tariff that you want. Again, because mobile phone networks aren’t ‘renting’ you a mobile phone handset, it not only brings down the price of your contract, but it also makes you a low-risk candidate.

If you have a Dual-SIM phone, splitting your Voice and Data SIM’s is probably one of the most effective ways of saving money. By getting a SIM-Only Data SIM, you can take advantage of the benefits of massively reduced data prices while still keeping your voice line costs down.

 

How does SIM-only work?

SIM-only deals are simple: select the right package of minutes, texts and data that suits your needs, insert the SIM card into your phone, and you’re good to go.

Users also have one of two options when going for a SIM-only deal. Content with your existing handset? Because you’re only paying for a SIM card, you can pop your new SIM into your current mobile and immediately start saving the pennies! Alternatively, you can purchase the phone of your choice SIM-free, which is great for users who find it tricky getting past the credit check.

And did you know that you can still keep your phone number with a SIM-only contract, even if you switch networks? Just ask your assistant to port your existing cellphone number from your current mobile provider.

Whether you are looking for Data, Top Up, or Voice Contracts, we have SIM-only deals to suit everyone: https://cellucity.co.za/contract-deals/sim-only-contracts/

Huawei Nova 5T, launching at Cellucity soon…

 

With Huawei being caught up in the Trump trade war, we managed to miss out on getting access to the rather incredible Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

The US Trade blacklist of Huawei has prevented it from licensing Android technology from Google and gaining access to Google Services, that are used, to power Google’s apps. So as incredible as the Huawei Mate 30 hardware is, vendors around the globe haven’t been too keen to roll the dice on a device that lacked access to essential applications like Google Maps, You Tube etc…

With us heading towards Christmas season and Samsung and Apple launching their latest iconic devices, Huawei needed to bring something to the party!

 

Huawei Nova – Crush Blue

Enter the Huawei Nova 5T, planned and approved before the US blacklist this photography powerhouse is still Google approved and runs Android Pie (9). Whilst the Nova range has traditionally not available in the South African market, Huawei has opted to release it here and it will be available early in November 2019.

The NOVA lineup, in the Huawei stable, sits in between the youth-focused Y-series and the more premium orientated P-series. It offers an aspirational trendsetter, a phone that is as unique as it is powerful!

First off, the stunning colours Mid-Summer Purple and Crush Blue, give a fresh new funky look, my preference being the Purple, which subtly has the Nova logo etched into the facia creating a dynamic wow appeal. It really has to be seen “in the flesh” to be appreciated.

 

 

 

 

Huawei Nova – Mid-Summer Purple

From a tech perspective, the Nova is not all just about style and very much about brilliant photography. A rear array of quad cameras leading with 48MP main camera, Macro lens, 16MP Ultra Wide Angle lens with supporting Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help optimize scene selection, your photos will be the envy of your Instagram followers!

And if taking greater photos was not enough, the front-facing camera is a staggering 32MP and also sports AI to ensure your Selfies always have you looking your best.

Other stand out features are a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM (great for gaming apps like PUBG) and 128GB onboard memory, the Nova 5T certainly ticks all the boxes!

The Huawei Nova 5T will be priced from R599 per month on a Vodacom contract and will retail for R11999. It is certainly going to be a strong contender against the more expensive “iconic” devices when comparing its specs.

The first 2000 lucky owners in SA will also receive a Huawei MediaPad T5 tablet valued at R3999. All in all, the Huawei Nova 5T is a great choice for this summer! For more information visit www.cellucity.co.za

The Samsung Galaxy A80 – Rotating camera? Say whaaaat…

The Samsung Galaxy A80 – Rotating camera? Say whaaaat…

With new phones being released frequently it is quite rare to find something that catches your eye immediately. But with the Samsung Galaxy A80, this happened way before I even got my hands on one. Why, do you ask? Well, it is something different, isn’t it? Not to say that innovation has not been rampant of late BUT with the A80 it’s a tangible innovation – not just software or camera pixels.

Let’s get past the tech talk quick. This device places just below the premium top tier space but, you wouldn’t say so. Packing a punch with 8GB RAM (yes 8GB RAM) I have never had the pleasure of such a smooth user experience, quick and fast – just what you want on the go. The Samsung Galaxy A80 has 128GB onboard memory and although it is lacking a memory card slot 128GB is solid – the average user will not exceed this in my opinion.

You get a 3700mAh battery and the phone is supported by Fast Charge at 25W. I tested the device to the hilt and found the battery performed very well. I was concerned that the battery may be a bit small to support all the functionality but after fully charging up on a Friday night after a full day’s use it only dropped to 81%.

For those who do not use their phone very often, with low usage, I  managed to get a 7-day standby time and only saw the battery dropping by 20%. This phone is efficient with power.

If this hasn’t got you interested yet the design most will. Some will call it heavy – I call it solid. It is not uncomfortable to operate one-handed and really isn’t that much heavier than your average device. Yes, it is a bit thicker, but the beautiful glass design and metal frame make it worth it.

The real kicker here though is the display. I kept coming back to it and honestly it had my friends mesmerized. At 6.7 inch you are bordering on tablet territory, but this display is notch-less and almost completely bezel-less – a new Infinity Display. This is the most screen real estate I have seen on a device. They have managed this by building their Selfie Camera into the main camera and using a rotating mechanism to pop up and out when it is selfie time.

The Super AMOLED Full HD+ display provided a vibrant colour and great viewing experience. Now not as highly spec’d as your top range devices I really don’t think this will matter to most users – it certainly didn’t to me. Honestly, this display will speak to all content viewers be it the occasional Facebook user, Content Uploader or your “bored at work” Netflix watcher.

Another excellent feature currently only found on flagship devices is the in-display fingerprint sensor. Yes, this device has it.

Unfortunately, due to the innovation, there is a concern as to the exclusion of an IP rating (one can only assume it is due to the moving parts required for the rotating camera) and the possibility of not being able to find a cover. Samsung has also excluded a headphone jack but quite honestly for me, this is no longer the biggest deal.

The design mixes old school charm with new-age innovation and I personally salute Samsung on this incredible creation.

Now let’s get to the camera. Off the bat, the rear camera gives you a triple 48MP + 8MP + TOF camera. The 8MP works with your ultra-wide-angle and your TOF camera provide great 3D depth – excellent for Live Focus and Background Blur. And best of all you get all of these on the Selfie camera as well. No more balancing act to use your back camera – simply flip the switch wait for the camera to flip and there you go! It may just be me, but I found looking at the pictures almost like looking at the scene with the naked eye – but clearer.

All the usual suspects performed brilliantly (Panorama, Slo-Mo, Live Focus,) with no lag and performed commendably in low light conditions.

Again, and I can’t stress this enough – I was blown away by the camera. The clarity and colour of the images and the ease of use make it a home run for me. I tested Live Focus and Live Focus Video with great success. This camera creates magic – take my word for it!

Finally, the Samsung Galaxy A80 has added a new software feature in its Intelligent Performance Enhancer. Essentially what this does is uses AI to learn your routine and adjusts your CPU, RAM and battery usage to enhance the performance of your phone. I didn’t have the phone long enough to test this but judging the fact my battery is still going strong and based on all the other features I can only assume it’s the real deal!

I think Samsung has really nailed it with this one. This device is so exciting, easy to use and remarkable that I will be very surprised if it doesn’t land on thousands of Christmas Wish Lists this year. It is certainly going on mine!
