after going through above comments, i would like to say that nokia has done the right thing by not manufacturing dual sim dual active mobiles as they cause major health hazzards.. And Nokia will give you such a quality which is very far from local manufacturers and even samsung..


Yes dude but we cannot always think of business.with huge business also comes huge responsibility and you know HEALTH IS WEALTH and some companies think about consumers and their well being and Nokia is one among them and one day due to any pressure or incident or scam the govt eyes may open and make strict enquiry into these issues of health effects and these local manufacturer will be chopped(remember what happened to china mobile for quite some time).
