Best smartphones HOMTOM

We propose to consider the range of phones company HOMTOM , which has long been present in the CIS market. We will find out for whom these devices are suitable and whether it is worth paying attention to them at all.

HOMTOM is a subbrand of the Chinese company DOOGEE , which manufactures smartphones of budget and ultra budget class. Products of this manufacturer are not in great demand in the CIS, and in China they are not particularly popular.

Despite the extremely low price tag and sometimes decent technical specifications, these are not the most stable in terms of software phones. They are inferior in these parameters to more eminent companies, for example, Xiaomi and Meizu . On the pages of forums, price aggregators and large online stores there are positive and negative reviews. That is, if you buy a device of this brand, it can serve for a very long time.

The manufacturer has two main lines, namely:

  • “HT” - budget devices with mediocre design and not outstanding specifications. The series also includes secure devices;
  • "S" - more expensive solutions that look much prettier and got iron more powerful and relevant.

In the model range of smartphones HOMTOM there are worthy of attention gadgets. We again look at the most interesting of the different price segments and briefly describe their key features.

One of the most popular mobile phones of the company, which gathered a lot of positive feedback. It is made stylishly and also has a screen with adequate color and a fingerprint scanner. Pixel density per inch is enough. It is a pity, but the power of the HT50 will not please - heavy games and applications on it greatly slow down. At the same time, the system works adequately as for this price, and there are many applications in the background.

The company got a good ultrabudgetary device. There are no complaints about a large number of defects, the assembly is not inferior to expensive devices. In general, an amazingly good phone, if you are going to call on it and perform simple tasks.

HOMTOM HT20 Pro

  • Display: 4.7 inches, HD (1280 × 720 pixels).
  • Battery: 3500 mAh.
  • Cameras (rear / front): 16/8 Mp.
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6753 (8 cores Cortex-A53 × 1.3 GHz) + ARM Mali-T720 graphics.
  • RAM / ROM: 3/32 GB.
  • Android version: 7.0.

Price: from 7500 rubles.

Perhaps the most popular decision of the company. This shockproof smartphone has been repeatedly tested for durability, water resistance, and it adequately tested. In addition, it has a “juicy” matrix and a high number of pixels per inch. Appearance is too extravagant, but some may come to taste.

The single-chip system also pleased, eight cores cope well with all everyday tasks. There is no particular discomfort when working, but everything is sad with games. And even the camera here is not so bad, she confidently copes with shooting in sufficient light. Strictly speaking, this is one of the best inexpensive protected devices.

Pros :

  • nice screen;
  • work speed;
  • multitasking;
  • satisfactory photo quality;
  • IP 68 protection;
  • autonomy.

Cons :

  • large frame and body thickness;
  • mediocre frontalka.

HOMTOM S9 Plus

  • Display: 5.99 inches, HD (1440 × 720 pixels).
  • Battery: 4050 mAh.
  • Cameras (rear / front): 16 + 5/13 Mp.
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6750T (4 cores Cortex-A53 × 1.0 GHz + 4 cores Cortex-A53 × 1.3 GHz) + graphics Мali-T860 MP2 (dual core).
  • RAM / ROM: 4/64 GB.
  • Android version: 7.0.

Price: from 11 500 rubles.

The flagship of the corporation and one of their most beautiful smartphones, but without powerful specifications. The matrix is ​​just not bad, but the pixel density is clearly not enough. Also, the photo shows that the frames around the display are very thin, but in reality this is not the case - they are wider. It is noteworthy that the frontalka is installed at the bottom, on the “chin”, and not on top.

Surprisingly, this processor has a worse processor than the protected HT20 Pro. However, there is no big difference, complex "toys" still do not go, and the system works relatively quickly. In the "flagship" appeared an additional module on the rear panel, responsible for shooting with blurring the background. Photos from the main sensor come out during the day detailed, but at night clarity falls.

Pros :

  • the design of the front part, as in Mi Mix 2S;
  • portrait mode;
  • excellent autonomy;
  • a lot of "RAM".

Minuses:

  • chipset performance;
  • photo opportunities at the average level;
  • no nfc ;
  • originally outdated firmware.

HOMTOM HT17

  • Display: 5.5 inches, HD (1280 × 720 pixels).
  • Battery: 3000 mAh.
  • Cameras (rear / front): 8/12 Mp.
  • Chipset: MediaTek MT6737 (4 cores Cortex-A53 × 1.1 GHz) + graphics Mali-T720 MP2 (dual core).
  • RAM / ROM: 1/8 GB.
  • Android version: 6.0.

Price: from 5700 rubles.

The ultra-budget solution, enclosed in a nice body, is a pumped version of the successful HT16. Behind it has a smooth matte cover, and in front - a contrast screen with a very natural color reproduction. He does not have enough "stars from the sky", but he received an oleophobic coating and sufficient resolution.

Frontalka almost does not suit anything, and the main sensor, by contrast, is able to capture not a blurry frame, but only if there is enough light around. The processor is extremely weak, but what else should we get for 5,700 rubles? The smartphone is suitable exclusively for light tasks, it does not handle heavy tasks or does it extremely slowly.

Pros :

  • very low cost;
  • neat appearance;
  • there is a dactyloscope;
  • autonomy lasts for a day and a half;
  • main camera.

Cons :

  • the device has not been updated for a long time;
  • quiet sound from the speaker.

Conclusion

The brand also has newer smartphones, but their price is unreasonably high. For example, HOMTOM HT70 64 GB is not the worst device, but it is much inferior to direct competitors in the same price category. We recommend buying only very budget phones of this manufacturer, and then, for example, for a grandmother or another undemanding user. After all, for $ 130 it is already possible to take Redmi Note 5, while it will blow any HOMTOM smartphone in tatters.

Also keep in mind that the company does not release gaming solutions. MediaTek single-chip systems have weak video accelerators. If gaming is a priority, pay attention to cheap gadgets on Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.
