Brand new cars are Actually reasonable!

I know dealerships are not the most exciting places to walk into for the average Zimbo. A car sales garage is a lot more palatable and a lot less serious. However I was brave enough to walk into one last week. Mostly because I saw a snazzy looking Toyota I had not seen before.


I walked 2 489Km in 2021!

That is an average of 7.45Km a day. 223Km a month. An inside joke at Techzim states that I am the resident road runner and obviously that comes with a shoe bill worth some hefty chest pains.

Tecno Camon 18 Premier Review. Best midrange phone of 2021!

The Camon 18 Premier is probably the most important smartphone Tecno has made since the Phantom 6 Plus. Tecno is all grown up. This Camon 18 Premier has a mature sophistication about it which, and dare I say, warrants the cheeky jab Tecno took at Samsung. This is the Tecno Camon 18 Premier and it’s as exciting as the Premier League.

Huawei is building its ecosystem of products and services and recently they released their first ever premium wireless headphones. These are supposed to battle it out with the likes of the Sony WH-1000XM4s, the Bose NC700s and Apple’s Airpods Max. So are these US$268 headphones worth it?


Logic L63 review. A tough sell

Megapixels don’t matter

In 2012 Nokia released the 808 PureView and the headlines were that it came with a massive 41MP camera. Everyone else at the time was still hovering between 8MP and 16MP cameras so 41 was A LOT of megapixels. And for a whole 3 years after it was released, it was simply the best camera […]

Huawei 4G Router 3 Pro. Are the features worth the money?

It’s got heaps of features and allows plenty of customization for whatever use case you have for it and I think it genuinely looks good. Nothing is shouty about the design. It is nice and elegant and just blends in with the furniture.
But at US$150 one would ask if the features it comes with are worth that much. In this video we explore all it good bits to answer that question


Tecno Phantom X review. It’s got all the right boxes ticked

The Phantom line is Tecno’s most technologically advanced lineup of smartphones and the Phantom X I have here is probably their best execution of a Tecno flagship smartphone to date. It has an uncompromising look and feel to it even though some compromises were made to make it what I would call a flagship killer. […]


5 months with a Huawei Watch GT2

This is the Huawei Watch GT2 Classic Edition, and this is a long term review. It is a beautifully crafted watch and it sits between the regular GT2 and the GT2 Elite with the latter getting its title because of the titanium body and band. The GT2 Classic was my favourite choice of the 3 […]

Windows 11 setup & 1st impressions. It’s made for touch

Windows 11 is out, it is very touch friendly and looks like an evolution of Windows 10 so it has some familiarity to it. I’d love to highlight that the Windows 11 I am taking a look at is the leaked version so I’d advise you to wait for the official release unless you don’t […]

Why are TelOne and ZOL sim cards geolocked?

Geolocking is when a particular service is made available in a particular geographic location. In the case of TelOne and Zol, they do the same thing. But why do they restrict their service? Should all sim cards not work the same way?


Tecno Camon 17 review

The Camon 17 is Tecno’s latest entry in Tecno’s mid tier offering. It sits between the Spark series and the Phantom series and if you were not aware this one is a bit more biased towards photography. It also can be the cheapest smartphone with a 90Hz refresh rate display.

Harmony OS finally got launched and Huawei plans to have it installed on 300 million devices by the end of 2021. While it’s being seen as Huawei responding to them no longer having access to the full Android and it’s services, it does not exist to just be an Android replacement for Huawei. It’s looking to be more than that. It is probably the future of operating systems.
