Higher end Android phones have been doing this for awhile also. My Pixel 4XL has dual SIM functionality. Same as the iPhone, one physical and one eSIM.
I also have the Pixel 4 XL. That's cool, I never knew about that.

Sooo ... do you Know which one your actually using at any time ?
Yes. You can set the default number for data and calls separately. And they can be the same, or different lines.
You can also assign a line to a particular number your calling, use last used, or change it on the fly.
Very easy to use.

Can you bond them for more bandwidth?

How does it affect the battery life? Having 2 signals.
I haven’t noticed it impacting it at all tbh.
The xr had the best battery life of any phone I’ve used, even with two at the same time.
The 11 & 12 seem to not last as long, under the same circumstances.
However both of those have lasted as long running 2 lines and my wife’s exact devices running 1.

I don’t see bonding over two separate providers.

I don’t miss Sirius. Way too many dropouts around NoVA. One really bad spot was leaving the outer beltway to 95 south. And lots of dropouts on Old Keene Mill Road.

PS. My 2015 Civic did not have SXM.
