    I switched from iPhone to an Android device solely due to dual sim availability. I refuse to carry 2 devices and have both a personal and business account that can’e be consolidated at this time. If iPhone7 arrives with dual sim, I would switch back as I prefer the user experience and many of the apps as I am also an iPad user.
