If it's me, I'll take two phones with me.

Now that sounds crazy to me.

My Android phone died overnight in remote west coast NZ. I walked into a supermarket and bought a $60 android phone, connected to the hostel wifi and an hour later everything was restored from my old phone. Easy.

You don't need two of everything; you need to travel light.

Get one that takes 2 sims if you think it's necessary but there's no point carrying 2 phones.

Taking 2 phones is a waste of packing space. It's much easier to carry 2 SIM cards which are tiny . . . or simply buy a phone that holds 2 SIM cards so you don't have to keep track of them.

I wouldn't go iphone if your brother is used to a samsung, just stick with android
Look at batterylife, camera function and memory
In some cases GPS can be nice while travelling but I hardly ever use it, I just use the google offline maps of the area I visit

I was using Android smartphones for about six years and thought that I'll never use iPhone. But bought iPhone 5+ two years ago (not the newest model but older models are far cheaper) and still using it. I had to get used to it but now I wouldn't trade it to any Android smartphone. It doesn't have so many useless functions like androids.

So, you had two phones .

Are you used to it ? Android and iphone are two different devices, switching android to the iPhone isn't easy .....

He's saying very clearly that he did not travel with 2 phones...
Because it's unnecessary.

There's a "Move to iOS "app on the market that does that .
