eSIM is better than a physical SIM card because it has so many more benefits:
– eSIM is small: This not only allows extra room for other components, or perhaps a larger battery, it also enables manufacturers to rejig the internal layout of their devices. An eSIM doesn’t need to be near the edge of the phone and could make waterproofing devices even easier.
– eSIM can’t be physically damaged or lost: because it’s embedded inside devices.
– eSIM is secure: cant’ be duplicated.
– eSIM can store multiple cellular profiles: several profiles can be stored so you can easily toggle to select which carrier you would like to use.
– eSIM is easy to locate: it’s easier to find your phone in case it is lost or stolen since network providers can control eSIM remotely.
While eSIM has many benefits and it appears more advantageous than the physical SIM, there are still some limitations to the technology:
– eSIM is relatively new: it is only available with more recent phone models and selected carriers.
– eSIM is more difficult to transfer to a different device: Instead of popping the card out of an old smartphone phone, you have to download your data from the cloud to get your contacts, message, and other media back.
– eSIM makes it difficult to identify the cause of a network issue: when you have connection or signal problems an easy test is to stick your SIM into a different phone to check if the problem is with your network or your device. You wouldn’t be able to do that with an eSIM.
