Dual SIM cellphones are hit in the market today, you don’t have to buy a secondary phone for you to use two different networks at the same time. That’s another feature that Nokia and SE doesn’t have.

While big cellphone manufacturers like nokia and sony ericsson doesn’t have this feature yet we have another alternative, pinoy phones hehe.

I’ve been planing to buy a qwerty phone with dual SIM capability that is affordable and I found these units from Torque and MyPhone:

FeatureĀ  and price doesn’t have much difference so I’ll go with the looks.

Judging by the looks I think MyPhone Q21 is better hehe. And aside from that, I heard that MyPhone has a magic voice feature (this is a feature where in it will change your voice during a call), That’s a cool additional feature for a cellphone below Php 5000.

There you go, if I have to buy a cheap dual SIM QWERTY phone in the future I’d pick MyPhone Q21. Just my personal choice though, don’t take my word for it. If you still want Torque DQ500 over MyPhone Q21 its up to you :)
