Samsung C5212 - The Masstige of Dual Standby

With Samsung C5212 Duos you get two phones in one. This is the latest Samsung handset to offer seamless dual SIM handling with almost no compromise in terms of usability and telephony. The C5212 Duos looks a good basic package of reserved yet solid looks and great build quality. Plus, it's going to be the most affordable dual SIM-enabled handset by Samsung.

C5212 Duos measures 112.7 x 48.6 x 14.3 mm and weighs 110 grams, which makes it a relatively compact device. After all, there are two GSM transceivers in there. A classic bar with subtly rounded edges, it is very comfortable to handle.

Call management, phonebook and messaging specifics

Upon an incoming/outgoing call the caller number/name is accompanied by the name of the SIM card which is receiving the call.

When you want to call somebody, all you need to do is select the phone number and then choose which card to use for the outgoing call. The primary SIM is default and pressing the call key directly dials the number using it.

However, if you wish to call using the secondary SIM card, pressing the dedicated SIM management key switches the SIM card for the outgoing call. There are no delays or glitches whatsoever using this feature.

Dual Standby
• Mobile simultaneously holds 2 SIM cards
• Dual Standby allows the mobile to access either SIM card easily and conveniently
• Use two phone numbers on one phone or access two separate phone carriers for better coverage and cheaper tolls
