Google has been talking for a long time about replacing simple SMS messaging with RCS (Rich Communications Services) to offer a more WhatsApp-like experience from your basic messaging app, and now, finally, it’s about to make the move. At least, it is for users in the UK and France.

According to The Verge in conversation with Google, the company will offer RCS to those in the UK and France later in June. It’s able to do this as it’s going to use its servers to offer RCS directly – previously it was working with mobile networks to get them to support it, but progress was slow, so it’s cutting out the middleman.

RCS will be an opt-in service through the standard Google Messages app. So you won’t need a new app and if you want to stick with SMS, you can.

But for most people this should be a worthwhile upgrade, as RCS enables things like read receipts, typing indicators, high-quality media, and other things typical of more modern messaging services.

The only major downside is that unlike things like WhatsApp and iMessage, it doesn’t support end-to-end encryption, so your communications aren’t as secure, though Google claims to be working on this.

Right now there’s no public timeframe for when specific countries other than the UK and France will get access to Google’s RCS upgrade, but more countries will apparently get it “throughout the year”, so wherever you live you might not be waiting too long.

At the very least, you’re likely to get access to RCS faster than you would if Google was still waiting for networks to support it.

Having two SIMs in a single phone helps you to balance work and play, but dual-SIM phones are still pretty rare in the UK. We round up the best dual-SIM phones of 2019

So whats the best dual sim to buy?

Here’s our top 10

  2. Xiaomi Mi 8 pro
  3. Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
  4. Vivo Nex
  5. Xiaomi Mi 8

Dual-SIM smartphones let you use two SIMs in a single phone. Most people who use dual-SIM phones find the functionality useful for mixing work and pleasure, rather than carrying separate phones for their work- and personal contracts.

Dual-SIM phones are also useful for maintaining two personal contracts, however, whereby one might offer a good rate on calls and texts, and the other offers unlimited data. Or perhaps you frequently travel abroad, and would like to carry a UK SIM for when you’re at home and another that is local to the country you’re visiting.

Dual-SIM phones are incredibly popular outside the UK, but for some reason us Brits are being left out of the dual-SIM party. This is one reason why the Chinese market has become a popular solution for picking up a dual-SIM phone, but there are risks involved.

How do dual-SIM phones work?

Something we’ve noticed when shopping for dual-SIM phones is that the manufacturer very rarely provides any information about the functionality other than it exists. It doesn’t tell you how the dual-SIM functionality works in practice, nor whether both SIMs support 4G, or even what size SIM cards they accept. You can never assume: you’ll need to contact the manufacturer or check spec tables, reviews or forums to find out this information.

In all the dual-SIM phones we’ve tested both SIMs are on standby at all times (known as dual-standby phones), but you can actively use only one SIM at a time. This means that either SIM can accept a phone call or text at any time, without you having to actively swap between them or reboot the phone.

However, if you get a call on one number while a call is active on the other, it won’t start ringing in your ear or give you the option to put the first caller on hold – the call will simply not be successful.

What is the difference between Dual-Standby and Dual-Active?

Dual-active SIM phones use two modems and allow you to receive calls on both numbers at once.

If it’s you who wants to make a call or send a text, Android has a standard SIM Management menu that lets you specify which SIM should be used for voice calls, video calls, messages and mobile data. You can either specify a particular SIM for each of these tasks, or leave the setting at Always ask.

The data connection is where there seems to be a lot of confusion when it comes to dual-SIM phones. Whereas both SIM slots on some dual-SIM phones are capable of supporting 3G or 4G connections, you can use 4G on only one SIM at a time.

Unlike with calls and texts the data connection can’t be on standby for both SIMs: you must specify which SIM you want to use rather than select one when prompted. By default, when you are using the data connection on one SIM and a phone call comes in to the other it will pause the data connection on the first.

Another issue when using dual-SIM phones is where your contacts are stored. We found that by default the contacts from both SIM cards are stored in the phonebook.

If you’d rather see the contacts from only one SIM, tap the three dots icon (within the Contacts app) and choose ‘Contacts to display’. You can then select All contacts, Gmail contacts, phone contacts or one of your two SIMs.

SO HERE IS OUR NUMBER RATED BEST DUAL SIM PHONE

1. OnePlus 6T

OnePlus 6T

  • Rating:
  • Reviewed on: 13 December 2018
  • RRP: 6/128GB £499 | 8/128GB £529 | 8/256GB £579

This is one of the best phones you can buy even if it is the first OnePlus phone without a headphone jack. An in-screen fingerprint sensor, better speaker and more battery is the pay-off, and it’s worth it.

The large display is excellent, the dual cameras are more capable than ever and performance is the best you can get on Android right now along with the Pixel 3.

You’ll need to like the colour black, but OnePlus continues – just – to undercut industry prices enough to stand out.

Matt iphone 7

Apple is getting complaints from iPhone 7 matte black customers about the chipped paint. The problem was first reported to 9to5Mac.com. There are even grumbles on Apple’s official support forums. 

This is the complaint from one of the customer on Apple’s official support forum:

“I’ve bought my iPhone 7 Plus and after 3 weeks the paint started chipping/peeling near the right speakers. I have contacted Apple care and they asked to send a few images of the problem and after 12 days they told me it is not covered under warranty since it is under cosmetic damage,” 

According to testimonies on Apple’s support forums, Apple refused to exchange phones damaged in this way for new ones, claiming its “wear and tear” damage that the warranty does not cover. 

Jet Black models seemed to be possibly worrying as well, as the company itself advised it could scratch easily.
