There are many people who own two SIM cards, one for personal use and one for work, but they make the mistake to buy two devices, instead of choosing a phone which support two cards. There are many models on the market with this capability and their manufacturers prefer to select weaker specs for them and sell them in poorer countries, where the minimum wage is very low. HTC is one of the companies that has been focusing on building these types of phones and in this article we’ll present you the Desire 728G and Desire 820G+ models.

It benefits from BoomSound technology and supports Dolby Audio as well, while the screen measures 5.5-inch and has an average resolution of 720x1280pixels.

The Desire 820G+ was released in June and has a similar design, but it’s available in Marble White and Dovetail gray colors, while the dimensions are very close – 157.7×78.7×7.7mm.
