HOMTOM S16 is a new low-end smartphone. It comes with a large display but more humble specs. Which is understandable at this price-range. This is feature phone price. But with Android installed!
Main specs: 5.5 Inch display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage, MTK6580 Chipset, Quad-core processor and 4G Connection.
You get white, black and blue colours. It reminds me a little about Galaxy J5 from 2015 on the side. But it has dual camera on the back.
The screen on HOMTOM S16 has aspect ratio of 18:9 and it’s very big for it’s price range. It has plastic on the back side in a dotted pattern to make it a bit more interesting. So no premium metal here plastic is usually better if you are a clumsy person that often drops your phone.
The dual camera is 13MP + 2MP sensor. You get HDR and auto-focus installed. The 8MP front facing camera has beauty effect.
The display on front side on HOMTOM S16 is a SHARP variant with 640×1280 resolution. You get the speaker on lower back side.
Another thing that you get is the HOMTOM logo at the back in a nice look. On front side of the phone it seems like you get 3 capacitive touch buttons: Home, Back and Menu. The display doesn’t cover the full front or full edge so I wouldn’t call it an all-screen phone or bezel-less design phone.
But for the price I don’t think most people worry about that. Samsung this year has raised the prices on their A5 and J5 series and made them more premium. So maybe HOMTOM can step in here and take some costumers away from Samsung. Especially at this awesome low price below 100 dollar. Samsung has made it clear with Galaxy Note 8 that they truly want to become a brand that mainly focus on the high-end side.
