Interesting poll but I find the answer options for the last question too rigid. Normally, there are not so many absolute showstoppers when buying a phone, because you usually can’t get the dreamphone you want so you always have to make compromises. For me, Dual SIM is something I really want to have, but if one phone shows up that is perfect in all regards except it does not have this feature, I would probably get it anyways…
The rigidity of the last question was intended by me. So the question means if dual SIM is the absolute show-stopper/must-have, or, in other words, if you explicitly exclude all phones without dual SIM and don’t look further at them (“No dual SIM? No thanks!”).
So this means “No” in my question, because the dual SIM is not a must-have for you if the phone is good at another parts. Some other people may have a lower threshold when they give up dual SIM. Where do I draw the border at which the dual SIM feature is “important” to someone?
My poll with 52 voters has now the result that 81 % of Fairphone users use the dual SIM function of their Fairphone (60 % permanently, 21 % occasionally). It’s a significant bigger percentage than the blog post which stated 48 %.
So I think it’s good when all future Fairphones also support at least two SIMs.
