Homtom S16 Review – Affordability Clashes With Full Display

Another smartphone that makes it into the Homtom Full Display line up (Homtom S Series) is the Homtom S16. The smartphone has an aspect ratio of 18:9, full display and also has an affordable price tag. Believe me when I say it’s incredibly affordable. Check out this Homtom S16 technical features in the segments below:

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Homtom S16 has three colour variance to its name – Macaron Blue, Noble White and Gentle Black. The smartphone’s colour selection accentuates the special texture when the device is felt with the hand. The rear of the smartphone has the dual camera setup, LED flash, fingerprint sensor and HOMTOM logo. The fore of the smartphone has the front camera, touchscreen, android navigation soft buttons and earpiece as its occupants. Dedicated keys on the smartphone are the power button and the volume keys. It weighs 165 g with the battery and has a thickness of 8.9 mm.

Its HD screen has a large 5.5 inches full display with a resolution of 1280 x 640 pixels. The screen’s sharpness is dictated by the resolution and the 260 ppi pixel density. Its aspect ratio is 18:9 while its screen-to-body ratio is 72.80%. The smartphone has the multi-touch input feature.

HARDWARE, SOFTWARE AND MEMORY

Its hardware segment isn’t a classy one I must assert. MediaTek MT6580 gets the SoC mantle while a Quad core ARM Cortex-A7 powers the smartphone. The 4-cored processor clocks at a low 1.3GHz. The 32-bit processor type uses the 28nm process technology. To make graphics work out on the smartphone, the ARM Mali-T400 MP2 is used. Homtom S16 runs on Android v7.0 Nougat OS. The power of multi-tasking is the sole duty of the 2GB RAM. Storage of files and documents on the smartphone is carried out by a 16GB ROM which can be extended to 32GB if a micro SD card is employed.
