Lenovo A916 - $200 5.5' Dual 4G SIM
 
Anyone using this?
Looks very similar to the Redmi Note 3G specs except its Dual 4G, Kit Kat, lighter, and only 1Gb ram.

The casing looks super similar to the Samsung Note back.

Tempted, considering its half the price of the Nubia Z7 Max.

I think the only drawback here is the 1Gb Ram.

"YES it has two sim slots , but at a time only one works. . if you need to use your another sim (which is only 2g supported , btw) you have to select it in the sim management and it will restart the phone for you 2nd sim and guess wht, now your 1st sim is useless." Quoted from qoo10 customer review. I think lenovo k3 is a better option if you don't need a bigger screen, also less than $200.

Its not dual active, dual active means both are active at the same time (data, calls can use at the same time)

Its dual sim, single standby (as replied from qoo10 seller), so its not real dual sim, probably a dual sim card holder inside (on a single sim phone)

Is this HP is duel sim or Single sim?

I was assuming it works similiar to the Redmi devices. 1 slot is 3G and the other is 2G. Data only on 1 slot which normally would be the 3G slot. Thus the need to swap card slots when using local sim overseas.
