Hello MIUI Fans,             
              Welcome to our new Quick Discussion Volume #16. Our last discussion was Will Dual Fingerprint Scanning Become Trend or Just Trick?. Here comes another interesting discussion, "Which One Do You Perfer eSIM or Normal SIM Card & Why?"

sim-card_evolution_eng-01.png

Normal SIM Card
        SIM literally means "Subscriber Identity Module", and it’s just a simple memory chip that holds identity information about cellphone users. SIM cards are usually integrated into a UICC (Universal Integrated Circuit Card), PVC cards with metal contacts.

       SIM cards hold a unique 20-character ID number called the ICCID (Integrated Circuit Card Identifier), which is needed to port the number between different operators. It also  contains an ISMI number (International Mobile Subscriber Identity), which is basically your phone number, some security information, a list of services the user has access to and two security codes. The first code is your PIN (Personal Identification Number) and the second is the PUK (Personal Unblocking Code), which helps us unlock the PIN if there are too many failed attempts.
            SIM cards also contain an SMS memory and personal contacts. The memory on standard SIM cards ranges from 8 KB to 256 KB, which is enough space for more than 250 contacts. However nowadays it’s much safer to keep your contacts in the cloud than on your SIM card.


     The first smart UICCs were the size of a credit card. Over the years, they’ve been getting smaller and smaller. All this information is necessary to be able to make calls and for correct data traffic between the mobile networks of different carriers.

eSIM (Embedded SIM Card)
        The name eSIM means embedded SIM, which is a SIM card integrated into something. It’s not a real SIM card, but rather an integrated chip that follows SON-8 standard directly within a device, which means it can’t be removed or switched out.


eSIM Pros :
  • It is Reliable, Programmable
  • Small Size, will take less space for smartphone circuit  design
  • Integrated on board



eSIM Cons:
  • Take time to implement
  • Can't be removed or ejected



              Which One Do You Prefer eSIM or Normal SIM Card & Why?
