However these two phones are not available in the market anymore. However Samsung has introduced two awesome phones in its Galaxy Y range that are simply the best in this price range.

All that has changed with the advent of Samsung Galaxy Y Duos. The Samsung Galaxy Y Duos Price is Rs. 8,499. This is the best android phone with dual sim. The Galaxy Y Duos has specification similar to the Galaxy Y but it is a dual sim mobile.
