The Fero Pace is the first smartphone from Fero Mobiles with a fingerprint sensor

Released as Fero’s first ever smartphone to sport a fingerprint sensor (a feature that surprisingly didn’t come in a flagship first), the Fero Pace still finds itself in the budget category of smartphones. Notwithstanding, it comes with certain appealing features such as its battery capacity which is a decent 2800mAh, and its fingerprint sensor speed.

Though these are accompanied by a couple of downsides such as its non-support of 4G connection, the Fero Pace is still a package that’s worth the buy.
