The purpose of its 3D fingerprint sensor

Security - In case something happens and you lose your smartphone – during your commute, while you are in a public place, or because you were preoccupied with other concerns - whoever picks up your device won’t get to view or tamper with your personal social media accounts, images, and videos.
Privacy - Sometimes, even those nearest and dearest to us could get tempted to play with our smartphones while we are not looking, driven by either curiosity or a plan to prank us. Having a fingerprint sensor will make it impossible for them to play with your device without your knowledge.
Convenience - Various studies have shown that an average smartphone user checks his or her device anywhere from 85 to 150 times in one day. Having to input pass codes each time can get tiring and confusing, especially for more senior users. Smartphones with fingerprint sensors solve this problem and make it hassle-free for these users to keep their devices protected.
“The UP Sense lets you use the most secure tool that you have in your possession 24/7 to lock your device and control access to your apps and private files—your very own fingerprint,” said Starmobile Product Development Head Michael Chen. “We aim to give you peace of mind that only you will have access to your smartphone’s content.”
This phone also has 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, and dual SIM card slots. It runs with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
