Pick up the Lumia 540 Dual SIM if you value style above all else and want to stand out in a crowd. If utility is your main concern but you still want Windows Phone, save some money with the Lumia 532 Dual SIM. If you want better features and a bit more power, you have plenty of options on the Android side of the fence.
