Dual Active SIM in Zenfone 2 - DEMYSTIFIED


Folks, I guess many of you must have heard that the Zenfone 2 has Dual Active SIM. Well my last phone was the Zenfone 5 which had dual standby SIM , like other Dual Standby Devices. Dual Active SIM devices have both SIMs active while you are on call on either SIM, so you never miss a call. While in Dual Standby SIM devices the SIM that you are talking on remains active while you are on call and the other SIM becomes non-reachable.


So I decided to test my Zenfone 2 Dual Active SIM capability to see how many calls can it handle at a time.


So I called up 2 of my buddies Omkar and Harshal from SIM1 as shown below

You can see that Omkars call is active , while Harshal is on hold.


Then suddenly I got a call from Priyanka on SIM 2

I answered her call and you can see that Priyanka is on SIM 2.
Then I remembered that I have kept both Omkar and Harshal on hold on SIM1.

So I again switched to SIM 1 to check if they are still on the line or not.
Thankfully they both are still on the line. Please note that Harshal is on hold and Priyanka is on hold on Sim2.

Then I switched my call and spoke to Harshal, Poor fellow he was on hold for a while.
Do Note that Priyanka is still on hold on SIM2..

Then suddenly I got a call on SIM 2 from an unknown number
Wow ... thats the 4th call that my Zenfone 2 was handling simultaneously.

SIM 2 is now handling the unknown caller and Priyanka

Finally to sum up the experience.... You can see that there are 2 calls on SIM1 and 2 Calls on SIM 2 as seen below.
When I speak to one of them the other 3 are kept on call waiting... The magic of DUAL ACTIVE SIM


SIM 1 - Harshal and Omkar

SIM 2 - Priyanka and the unknown caller.

WOW .... Zenfone 2 Dual Active SIM is really awesome , but then I thought of something really crazy to try....


May be I can call my SIM 2 from SIM1 and see how it fares... So I dial from ALT Num on SIM2 from my Main Num on SIM1
Here is my calling my ALT num

Vipin Calling Vipin.... Creepy

Well thats all folks! Hope I have successfully demystified the Dual Active SIM fo you.
Let me know if you liked it and will this Zenfone 2 feature be useful for you.
When you keep saying things the way it is , ultimately your word becomes the law of the universe.

REALLY IT IS AWESOME DUAL ACTIVE/CALL PHONE. WHILE SPEAKING IN ONE SIM WE WILL GET A CALL FROM THE OTHER SIM WITHOUT GETTING CALL WAITING/CALL FORWARDING/BUSY/NOT REACHABLE ETC FOR THE DIALING PERSON. HE IS GETTING DIRECT RINGTONE.
