Tor project releases recently release Tor Browser for Android which aims in privacy protections that include block trackers, Resist Fingerprinting and Multi-Layered Encryption. But still, if you use other apps that will reveal your IP address.
“The Onion3G design is a closed network between your 3G device/MiFi/modem and the Brass Horn Comms Tor bridges, this may make the collection of Internet Connection Records less effective.”

“This SIM card, however, is supposed to provide a more restricted solution in the event that other approaches don’t quite work. The key point is that it is a failsafe, if you don’t have Tor up then nothing can get to the internet,” Llewelyn said to Motherboard.
The SIM card is available for £2.00 per month and the charges will be £0.025 per Megabyte transferred.
In order to use the SIM card the user needs to create a separate access point and should have orbot installed. ONION3G is currently in Beta and it work’s only in the UK.
Technically, this is also the correct approach—don’t auto-tunnel all connections through Tor, but instead ensure non-Tor traffic doesn’t leak. Unfortunately, this would only provide that assurance on a mobile data connection, and not WiFi Freitas said Motherboard.
