With several major telecom operators like Reliance Communications, Tata Docomo and MTS on the CDMA spectrum, there’s still a big market for compatible devices. While some CDMA smartphones are tied to a particular telecom operator, dual-SIM handsets supporting both GSM and CDMA bands are popular as well. However, compared to the more popular GSM technology, CDMA-supported smartphones are few and far between. Here's our shortlist of the top five CDMA smartphones currently available in the market.

HTC One Dual-SIM (Rs 36,849)

The HTC One Dual SIM was launched in association with Tata Docomo. The dual-SIM device supports both GSM and CDMA bands and is almost identical to the single SIM HTC One. The smartphone offers a full HD 4.7-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection. Powering the show is a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB RAM. The device offers a 4MP UltraPixel rear camera with an LED flash and a 2MP front camera. The phone runs Android 4.2.2 layered with the HTC Sense 5 user interface by default, but has since received the 4.4.2 KitKat update. Fuelling the smartphone is a 2,300mAh battery.


HTC Desire 600c (Rs 22,999)

Launched last year, the HTC Desire 600c is the CDMA-compatible version of the HTC Desire 600 dual-SIM. It features a 4.5-inch 540 x 960 pixel display, an 8MP primary camera, a 1.6MP secondary camera and 8GB of expandable storage. Performance is handled by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor, Adreno 203 graphics and 1GB RAM. Music lovers will appreciate the stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers and Beats Audio sound. The Desire 600c runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean customised with HTC Sense 5. It packs in a 1,860mAh battery which claims to offer up to 11 hours of talk time.

The Canvas Duet II runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is fuelled by a 2,300mAh battery that offers up to 6 hours of talk time.


HTC Desire 700 (Rs 20,247)


The HTC Desire 700 was launched last December and recently received a major price cut. The dual-SIM smartphone offers GSM+CDMA support and runs an outdated Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with HTC’s Sense 5 UI on top. It features a 5-inch 540 x 960 pixel display, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2MP front camera and 8GB of expandable storage. Powering the phone is a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 chipset with 1GB RAM. It also offers dual Boom sound speakers with built-in amplifiers. Under the hood is a 2,100mAh battery offering up to 11 hours of talk time.

Listed on the company’s website without a price tag, the Micromax Canvas Blaze HD offers a 5-inch HD IPS display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor. The dual-SIM smartphone offers GSM+CDMA support and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It sports an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. Internal storage is just 4GB, but is expandable via a microSD card. The 2,000mAh battery offers up to 5 hours of talk time. Since the Canvas Blaze HD sports MTS branding on the rear panel, it could be launched in association with the telecom operator, like its predecessor.

Another worthy CDMA option to consider is the budget Micromax Canvas Blaze.
