    If you had the choice between an unlocked T-Mobile V20 (H918) or the dual-sim global model (H990N) for the same price, which would you choose?

    Without going into detail as to why I ordered both phones, I have both sitting here right now and can't decide which one to keep. Here's how I see it:

    H990N Pros

    - dual SIM (though I don't travel much and not sure how useful it would be for me in the long run)
    - More LTE bands, though no Band 66 support for Freedom Mobile or some T-Mobile areas.
    - Apparently better audio due to B&O tuning
    - B&O headphones included.

    H918 Pros

    - Rootable with custom roms available.
    - Band 66 support. Not sure how much that would get used by me but possibly helpful for resale afterwards if needed.

    Right now I'm leaning a bit more towards keeping the global model but the idea of being able to flash a custom ROM is tempting.

    Thoughts?

    I'm personally not into custom ROM's, so I'd probably go with the dual SIM version. Installed a different launcher and theme, and I'm loving the new look. Everything still smooth running, so I wouldn't go with the TMO version unless you just have a compelling reason to install a ROM.

    Dual SIM would be cool to have, I wouldn't mind having 2 phone numbers on one phone

    For me root is key. Even if stock rom, rooted. Just for adaway alone. So H1918.
