The Galaxy Note10+ is an excellent handset, which unfortunately cost a whopping $1,100 when it came out. As its replacement might be around the corner, prices are continuing to drop. The dual-SIM international version is now down to $740 on eBay, which is $360 off the original price.

If you're the type to read Android Police (hello), you probably have seen this story before. Last we wrote about getting a dual-SIM Galaxy Note10 for less than retail price, it was in February. Prices have recently taken another dip, so if you're quick enough, you can snap a 256GB unit for just $630.
The Galaxy S20 series is quite expensive, with even the lowest-end model costing $1,000 in the United States. If you're not picky about cellular reception, the dual-SIM S20+ is just $800 on eBay, and now the dual-SIM S20 is down to $749.99.
The first developer preview of Android 11 is here, and even though it's just the first of many pre-release builds, there are still a ton of new features and changes. We've already written dedicated posts for most of the visible updates in Android 11 — you can see all of our coverage here — but there are also some smaller tweaks that aren't quite substantial enough for several paragraphs of explanations.
Back in February, preliminary data seemed to indicate the Pixel 4 would support dual-SIM dual-standby, which allows two separate lines to be provisioned simultaneously on the same device. The feature became fully available on the Pixel 3a thanks to the Android 10 upgrade, and it's only fair to expect Google's latest flagship would also support DSDS. Although the company hasn't officially confirmed this, some evidence indicates the handset should handle the functionality.
International versions of Samsung devices often pop up on eBay with significantly lower prices than the retail editions. The Galaxy Note10+ was no exception, as it was selling for $900 on the site last month. It dropped a little more, as the handset is now available for $874.
There's been a lot of noise around the Pixel 3's dual SIM feature, and until now Google seemed undecided as to whether it wanted to provide full support for Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) on its latest flagship. However, the company just officialized the feature on the Pixel 3a and 3a XL, offering the ability to use two lines simultaneously.
If you, dear U.S. reader, are looking to purchase a Galaxy Note10 or Note10+, but don't want to be beholden to your carrier for a device payment contract or even to the power of Qualcomm processing, you'll likely be dredging the gray market for your Samsung phablet. Well, reputable eBay seller never-msrp will be happy to sell you a Note intended for Asian or European markets right now, and at a good discount, too. Just beware of the small details.
Google has embedded eSIM capability into its Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 handsets, so users could choose between using a physical chip or a virtual one. Unfortunately, the option was limited to registering one or the other on the network, but not both at the same time. With Android Q, the company is bringing (limited) dual-SIM support to its latest flagship, so you can simultaneously connect both the physical and eSIM to the cell towers.
