    "Mood messenger looks to have a very nice layout and feature set. The ability to have dual SIM support is a big addition for some people. Also a long list of emoji support is a must."

    "Contacts+ lets you manage your contacts list. As for the dual sim, I don't think this is the right app. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Benefon Twin was the first phone that has a dual SIM functionality. It was released in the late 2000s by Benefon now called Twig Com Ltd. a mobile telecommunications company headquartered in Salo, Finland. They develop and manufactured GPS tracking products and software for telecare, worker protection, and asset tracking applications. When dual sim phones became a hit and attracted mainstream attention, small Chinese firms that produce dual SIM phones also penetrated the market. 

Dual SIM phones became popular particularly for business purposes because it reduces cost by being able to use two different networks based on cost or signal strength. Also, you don’t have to use two separate devices. For its other usage, those who sell foreign SIMs for traveling also promotes dual-SIM as a way to substitute their card for a home country provider’s card on the same handset. Dual SIM phones allow users to have a separate contact list on each SIM and at the same time allow easier roaming by enabling it to access a foreign and an existing local card or SIM. Most of the time manufacturers do not make dual-SIM versions of all their phones but they usually create a dual-SIM model for popular phones especially in the international market. Here are the best dual-SIM Android phones in the Android Authority list as of April 2018; Huawei P20 and P20 plus, OnePlus 5T, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

    "Handcent Next SMS is an alternative texting app for your mobile. I like the flat colors and the way the ui looks. It has heaps of Emojis with some even being animated. I have tried a few other alternatives to find i couldn't send images or it would store my image on their server . Which kind of worries me. Handcent Next SMS send an image with no issues. All in all its a very user friendly experience."

    "This is a SMS sender, it doesn't support dual sims as far as I am aware. This would not work for what you're looking for."
