It has been rather smart of the OEMs to drop the individual microSD card slot without creating a fuss, but it is a bit of an inconvenience that more people are getting into with every passing day. Reliance Jio has changed the structure of a lot of things since its advent but what it has also done is make people crave the dual SIM feature even more and now that most phones offer a choice between the second SIM and the MicroSD card, it is of course troublesome, especially with the 16GB and 32GB native storage phones. While most phones are leaping toward the optional SIM/MicroSD card slot, there are still some that bring you the dedicated MicroSD card slot.Ready or not, let’s take a look!
Here are Best Dual SIM phones with dedicated MicroSD card slots
1Samsung Mid-range phones
To be fair, most of Samsung’s upper mid-range phones bring you the individual MicroSD card slots. These cover both the sport-glass and metal build A-series and the slim and handy full metal profile C-series handsets. This list of the best Samsung phones with the individual SD card slot in India should suffice in the case:
– Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)
– Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)
– Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro
– Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro
– Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro (Review)
2Moto G5 Plus and Moto G5
Sadly enough, Motorola has taken up some strange storage options in its fifth generation Moto G-series. While the top G5 Plus model still does not bear 64GB storage, the low-end version fares worse with a memory 16GB of internal storage. Having said that, the phones come with a dedicated MicroSD card slot and that should make it better.
– Moto G5 Plus
– Moto G5
One of the most popular Oppo phones here in India, the midrange Selfie expert Oppo F1s comes with a dedicated MicroSD card slot in both versions along with the native storage 16 and 64GB option.
If you are on the lookout for a dapper selfie-strong phone with the MicroSD card slot that you can pick up from offline stores as well, the Oppo F1s does seem like a pretty apt fit.
4Samsung Galaxy On Nxt and J7 Prime
The Samsung Galaxy On Nxt and J7 Prime are so much similar to one another to the point that you could be taken aback. The Galaxy On Nxt is only meant for online selling with the standard 32 GB storage while the J7 Prime has 16GB storage and is available at most offline stores too.
Now, neither is perfect, but they are the closest Samsung under 15K options that are there.

– Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime
