My phone does not have a fingerprint reader and I don’t really use a pattern. Depending with the week I either activate “swipe to unlock” or use a half-hearted password because I want to avoid forgetting the password. A fingerprint reader would be awesome but back when I bought my phone, devices with a reader cost a small fortune.
The LEAGOO M9 Quad-Cam is retailing for only $62.99
Remember Tomtop one of the top three Chinese retailers we featured last time? They are offering an exclusive deal to Techzim readers. You can buy the LEAGOO M9 phone from their online store for $62.99 instead of the usual $90 that is a massive $27 savings.
Is this phone any good?
While it might be an unfamiliar brand the phone comes with decent specifications which are impressive given the discounted price. For $60 bucks you get 2GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM extendable up to 32GB, 3G connectivity, 5MP and 8MP cameras, Android 7 and even a silicon case on top of everything.
It comes of course with a fingerprint scanner that promises to unlock your phone in 0.1s. I do not know of any other phone that comes with a fingerprint scanner at that price. It will mean you no longer have to remember those complex patterns which have been proven countless times to be not as secure as they are cracked to be. Of course you spouse can always grab one of your fingers while you lie sleeping and unlock the phone.
You can pair this phone with an awesome pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones. Normally you would have to fork out $19 for these but again in another exclusive deal to our readers you can get these at $14.99. You will no longer have to haul dangling wires around whenever you want to go on a jog listening to music. The headphones are light and stylish and in essence should rightly be called earphones.

NB: For the phone you will be charged $11 for shipping and for the the headphones $3.70. You can expect to receive the item around 30 days after making the purchase which is of course the standard for Chinese resellers.
Making payment and Import Duty [Update]
You will need a PayPal account and or/Visa or MasterCard that can make international payments in order for you to be able to buy the phone. If you don’t already have one you can get the FBC prepaid MasterCard or Steward prepaid Visa. Both cards require you to prefund your card using foreign currency.
As this phone would be shipped abroad you will most likely have to pay import duty on it. Typically on phones duty of 25% is levied on phones as well as 15% VAT which is payable on most products in Zimbabwe.
