Dual SIM

A pair of GSM modules allows you to operate two active SIM cards in one phone simultaneously. The primary slot usually supports voice and data services, while the secondary slot supports only voice services. You'll find more information in the user manual provided by the manufacturer.

Gorilla Glass

Gorilla Glass is a type of screen protection, which prevents scratches and breakage. Mobile phone manufacturers always specify whether their screens feature Gorilla Glass technology and which generation they use. The 4th generation, which has been on the market since 2014, is currently the latest. The fifth generation is currently.


LTE (Long Term Evolution) is a 4th generation data network technology. The maximum theoretical data transfer speed in LTE-A (LTE-Advanced) is currently 375 Mb/s for downloads and 50 Mb/s for uploads. If you are planning to buy a phone, make sure it supports the LTE frequency commonly used in your country.

VoLTE (Voice over LTE) is an LTE technology that enables voice service over LTE. The standard must be supported by both your phone operator and the phone itself in order to work. Its advantages are high call quality and faster network connection.

The LTE network also carries VoWiFi (Voice Over Wi-Fi). This technology is often mistaken for VoIP (Voice Over IP), which enables calls over the Internet. VoWiFi connects to the radio part of the network via your home Wi-Fi coverage, so it looks like you are simply calling via a standard GSM network. It is mainly used in areas with poor coverage. Just like VoIP, this function must be supported both by your operator and your phone in order to work.
