Use of Hybrid Dual-SIM adapters on the rise
With the rise of smartphone Hybrid Dual-SIM trays come the inevitable: the use of an adapter to fully integrate the dual-SIM capability on the smartphone while expanding the storage. We’ve seen this being sold on several local smartphone groups in the past few weeks, and we can’t help but examine the make and durability.
For one, the adapter bears a flex cord containing the circuit, which can pass through a thin gap such as the area surrounding the SIM tray hole. The adapter is then used to insert another SIM card onto the device without compromising the functionality of the microSD card due to its sheer size.
The downside we’ve seen, though, is that the flex cord may be susceptible to wear and tear as it’s exposed, notwithstanding the additional bulk it will bring since it will look like an extended part of the phone that you have to mind when carrying or placing in a bag pocket. Furthermore, this could also destroy the overall aesthetic and construction of the device as you’re inserting modification, and you may lose your official warranty in the process.
These kinds of adapters are being sold starting at Php280.
