Dual SIM phone with Separate SD Card slot, finger print scanner and NFC

Any Android phone experts on here?  Could do with some advice if there are ....

I have a Samsung S5 Duos which is starting to feel a bit old and I want to replace. I work between two countries and need a phone which can carry two SIM's and I can take calls on either, I also enjoy the SD-Cards extra storage on my S5 for movies and music when on the move. I also want to use Android Pay as I think it will become useful within the next couple of years in the UK so I am looking for a good quality phone which has the following features :
  • Dual active SIM
  • SD Card slot (not hybrid second SIM slot)
  • NFC
  • Finger print scanner
Would prefer a flagship level phone but have been struggling to find something which ticks all the boxes..... the S7 has a hybrid second sim slot same as the Oneplus 3...

I am not very knowledgeable about phones, when I search online I end up with a lot of Chinese manufacturers phones with names I have never heard of (Elephone? Zopo?) - this is my primary work device so i need it to be rock-solid and well made. could anyone advise me on any phones which you might think meet my requirements which are available to buy in the UK?

Ta!

Probably not all criteria.

Gsm Arena my go to website for mobile info. shows 53 results (use the phone finder)

http://www.gsmarena.com/results.php3?chkCardSlot=selected&chkFingerprint=selected&chkNFC=selected&sNumberSIMs=1

Think the results show non dedicated sd-card slots.

That's really handy thanks, there are a few more to consider like the Sony X5.  Much Appreciated!

AHA!

I don't think there are any current flagship phones which meet my criteria, the SONY I mentioned above has the Snapdragon 820 chipset which is famous (apparently) for overheating.

However, you can hack the Samsung S7 Duos hybrid SIM slot to take a SIM and and SD Card slot :


Given how much I love fiddling with my stuff this is probably going to turn out to be my best option and the S7 is an excellent choice otherwise as it support wireless charging which I use a lot on my S5 and really like.

The SD820 is absolutely fine. The SD810 was famous for overheating. Just thought I should clear that up. The S7 in the US uses the SD820 actually.

Sorry, my bad - I made a mistake in my post above, the Sony Z5 has the Snapdragon 810 chipset, which is the toasty one as you say.....
