Conclusion: Demand for dual-SIM smartphones must be at an all-time high judging by how the leaders in the smartphone game are responding to it in what looks almost like a coordinated and sustained campaign. Pick a name at random from the Android Top Four - or five - and they each have at least a couple of options in their portfolio, ready to cater to different budgets and needs.
Pros: Dual-SIM (Dual Stand-by) GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, Dual-band 3G support on SIM 1, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support, 4.0" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800), 1GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7227A chipset, Cortex A5 CPU, 512MB RAM, Adreno 200 GPU, 4GB of on-board storage, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with HTC Sense 4 UI, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot functionality, GPS with A-GPS connectivity, 5 MP camera, geotag...
Cons: Modest chipset and below-par overall performance, No front-facing camera, Poor video recording, Feeble loudspeaker
Summary: The handset works quite well with the mobile network, although during the two-week period of my testing it, there had been a few similar occasions when one of the SIM cards lost its signal without any reasons, while the other one was still showing the best reception possible. The mobile operator was the same and the SIM cards were nearly of the same age.
Summary: We really don’t see anything impressive about the Desire V apart from the fact that this is HTC’s first dual-sim phone and that the audio quality is above-average. The Desire V is well built, yes, but it is more of a niche product in our opinion.
HTC Desire V – the first dual-SIM, dual-standby smartphone from HTC
21 June 2012
Conclusion: HTC Desire V is an attractive smartphone with decent hardware but it’s clearly not for everyone. Unless you find the need to use two SIM cards, it’s not worth trading for its lack in features and specs. That being said, SIM swappers will find it a better option than Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos in specs, build quality, and design.
Excerpt: Since the invasion of DUAL SIM mobile, I was always fascinated by them as I needed one number for my girl friend and one number for my usual use. But I didn't take the plunge as I wanted a reliable brand. Symbian and Nokia were above all for me till the death of Symbian! After this, I looked for alternatives but couldn't find any reliable ones as Android had just started to burst, iPhone was like selling my bike and other brands didn't gave me peace of mind.
Excerpt: HTC is a Taiwanese Smartphone manufacturer company who focuses on Windows as well as Android based OS. HTC Desire V is the new phone offered by the company that works on latest Android operating system. Looking wise Desire V resembles to HTC common pattern and is available in all black color colored diminutive body. But, the factor that makes it different from other phones of its category is it dual SIM capability. Yes!

Обзор Android-смартфона с поддержкой двух SIM-карт HTC Desire V
2 October 2013
Summary: Тем, кому нужен пристойно выглядящий, хорошо собранный современный смартфон, но при этом есть нужда в одновременном использовании двух SIM-карт, Desire V отлично подойдет. Конечно, только в том случае, если они готовы платить за это удовольствие в сочетании с не самым сильным (а откровенно говоря, довольно-таки средним) железом эквивалент четырех сотен американских денег. У него яркий и качественный экран, с точки зрения эргономики смартфон хорош.
