I was just going through my email and found an email from a certain brand claiming that their phone is superior in Dual Sim technology, So I quickly opened it to see what new have they done, well all it was trying to say was that E-Sim is not supported by every telecom company and our phones uses conventional technology so we are better than apple. That got me thinking, I researched a bit and tried to look into all the carriers that support E-Sim. So here is my conclusion on E-Sim and if it is better than the conventional way.
E-Sims, Are they any Good?
So when we look at the list of carriers, almost all major US carriers support E-Sim. A few in Europe and a handful in India, namely Airtel and JIo. This state is right now when the new phones are not in the market, Once they get in, I expect more number of Companies getting into this boat. So what this means is that the chances are your carrier will provide E-Sim, If not now, then they will very soon.
To switch a sim from One phone to another is very simple, all you need is a small pin to open the bracket, take the sim and transfer it to the other one. For E-Sim, If your phone to say is non-functional, You will need to go to the nearest store of your carrier and get a sim or register a new E-Sim for your new phone. Well, this is not as easy as the previous one and for me, I like to change my phones very often.
A nano sim may seem pretty small but is very big compared to the internals of a phone, I recently disassembled a OnePlus 3 and got to know just how much space both the sims take, So having an E-Sim will definitely save that space and for that space, you can get upto 20% more battery.
It will take another year or so before the E Sims become less of a hassle but it is the future and the ideal way to go. It creates a lot more possibilities and No Doubt E-Sims will take over and Now as Apple has done it, more and more companies will try to do so as well.
