    I was looking into getting the OnePlus 3, but wanted to know if both SIM cards were 4G LTE or if one was slower than the other. Thanks!

    I've only got the one SIM card currently, but I've used it in both SIM slots and had LTE in both cases.
    (I don't think there's much, if any, difference between the models in different countries, but just in case there is: I'm in the UK)

    You can only use one sim at a time for your data anyways ;)

    Well my plan was to use one sim for voice calling and sms, and then the other for data only as it works out to be cheaper that way.

    Yes, LTE works with both SIMs.
    However, only one SIM card can establish a data connection at a time.
    Switching between both takes about five seconds, despite the popup stating "up to a minute".

    It is known, Khaleesi.

    I am using one sim for calls and sms and another (from another operator) for data only. It works perfectly and with good speed (haven't measured that much but clocked it at 77 mbits/s the other day.

    Here's a perhaps trickier question. Since I read that the OnePlus 3 just switches SIM's based on whichever one is being used due to only 1 antenna, what would happen if both SIM cards are by the same carrier, but still following what I said before where 1 is for calls and SMS, and the other for data (so same carrier, just different plans). Would that improve things any?

    Do you know if you're able to delete an APN setting? Sorry for all of the questions! I plan on using it with Rogers (voice and SMS) and Telus, but I plan on using their flex data plan for tablets, and people are reporting issues where if the APN is on the wrong setting, you can get charged big time, adn the best bet is to delete one of the APN settings.

    Thanks! People seem to be saying that what I want to do with the SIMs, combined with what I've read on this thread, should work! I'll give it a test as soon as I can!
