for "normal sim" the most frequent I use is with the cable on the short cornered side

|  |---

but the reverse one is the second most frequent

I have 2 old phones which use the longer side for the cable

but have never used the reverse one.

for micro-sim, I have only seen 2 versions used (cable on the shorter sides)
