Is there much of a market for dual SIM phones in the UK?
Any recommendations?

The networks won't sell them for obvious reasons, so you need to buy sim-free.
Choice: Chines imports with poor warranty support. Or an Acer http://www.expansys.com/mobile-phones/brand/acer/ Acer's phones aren't bad. Heck, for the money they are quite good.
The other option? Prestigio

In all seriousness Jan's first answer is fairly accurate.

There isn't really a market for dual sim phones in the UK. Your only option is to either import from overseas. This can give you access to some great high spec dual sim phones but the downside is customs fees, no uk warranty and the risk of the phone breaking easily or not working properly. I'd recommend having knowledge of Chinese dual sim phones and Android OS before importing.

Alternatively you can look at dual sim phones which have been bought over by companies such as Acer, Samsung etc... that are being sold in the UK. Obviously they are a higher price because they're from bigger brands. But they do come with a UK warranty.

The Acer Liquid E2 for £180 at expansys is probably the best one to go for if you need a dual sim phone and don't want to import.

If you're looking to import you can get similar phones for under £100 but i don't really recommend importing unless you know what you're doing and what you're getting.

Psychologically speaking, there is no off-topic, anyways. Somehow 'we' do get from a to b! There's always a reason. A link.

Have a look on amazon for Samsung galaxy duos grand and mega. They are a quality brand with dual sims function. Priced around 220 and 300.

There is a French company (Wiko) who produces dual sim android phones. Check here: http://fr.wikomobile.com/index.php
2 year warranty within EU, and of course all compliance certificates. And quite a few of these have already been sold in France so less risk of no support.
And prices are well below Samsung products.

AhmadCentral  Sep. 10, 2013 at 12:14

Would still recommend the Acer over the Samsungs recommended above.

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 10, 2013 at 12:17

Takes a French company to make a sales website without an English version.... Oui?

AhmadCentral  Sep. 10, 2013 at 12:20

And you know whats funny is that the french company is just selling rebranded Chinese phones at a higher price :p

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 10, 2013 at 12:38

Reminds me: Prestigio... are they rebranded Chinese clones, too? Seem to have quite a range for a small company, eh?!

AhmadCentral  Sep. 10, 2013 at 12:51

The majority of them are. Yeh.
