Mate 8 NXT- L29 Sim Cards & microSD tray(Dual SimCard model)
By Momma 3kids | 18 Apr 2016 | 18 Apr 2016
The tray is for Sim Card & microSD card. If I put 2 SimCards, then no slot available for additional SD card? Is there any recommendations on how long for the first time charging after the battery drained out?
