HOMTOM is the typical brand that probably won't catch your eye. And you are also likely to change your mind the moment you start looking mobiles with a big battery. HOMTOM is a manufacturer that belongs to the DOOGEE group -this surely sounds more familiar to you- and is specialized in precisely that, in bringing high-energy-capacity smartphones onto the market. Today we talk about his most recent proposal, the HOMTOM HT70.
In today's review we set the spotlight on the HOMTOM HT70, a terminal with a very powerful 10,000mAh battery and a design that prides itself on being the thinnest among long-battery smartphones.
HOMTOM HT70 in review: when battery is everything
If we look at the characteristics of the HT70 we will find ourselves before the typical Chinese mid-range of 2018: a decent CPU, good RAM and ample storage space, but alas! That battery, my goodness, whoever caught it ...
Design and display
Visually, the HOMTOM HT70 has an appearance that is quite different from the usual stereotypical designs. It looks more like a ruggedized phone than anything else, with well defined frames and casing and sharp edges. It's not as sleek as other smartphones with its smooth, curved edges, but it does show off personality and power. Something that reminds me of the Transformers movies, like, "I don't know what this is all about, it confuses me a bit, but I guess I like what I see." A little fresh air that never hurts for a change.
The HT70 has a large 6-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and an HD + resolution of 1440x720p. It is not a screen that stands out too much, but at least it opts to lengthen the screen, something that practically all brands have signed up to this season.
Power and performance
If we delve into the guts of the HT70 we discover the classic hardware that has become so fashionable in recent months within the Chinese mid-range:
- MTK6750T Octa Core 1.5GHz CPU.
- 4GB of RAM memory.
- 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 128GB via SD.
- Android 7.0.
Mediatek's MTK6750T processor has caught on, yes, but precisely because it works really well. It offers low consumption and its performance is very good on a day-to-day basis. It is not a combo to play powerful games, but for everything else it is more than satisfactory - I will never tire of talking about how well my Elephone P8 Mini performs, which wears the same SoC as this HT70-. It also incorporates Bluetooth 4.0 and unlocking by fingerprint detector.
Camera and battery
In the photographic section there are surprises. Contrary to what it might seem, the HOMTOM HT70 equips a triple camera: a double camera on the back with bokeh effect, and a lens for the selfie area. The rear offers a resolution of 13MP + 2MP (up to 16MP + 5MP by software) and the front 8MP with f / 2.2 that are extended to 13MP through software expansion.
As for the strength of the new HOMTOM star terminal, what can we say? Assemble a gigantic battery of 10,000mAh with USB Type-C charging and fast charge function. A battery that offers us an autonomy capable of holding several days, or a good number of hours in case we make a really intensive use of the terminal.
Price and availability
The HOMTOM HT70 has just been presented in society, and it is already available at a reduced price of $ 164.99, about 135 euros to change, on GearBest. A more than interesting value for money for a phone with such characteristics.
We can also find it in other sites like Amazon, for a price of around 200 euros, as of April 5, 2018.
Opinion and final assessment of the HOMTOM HT70

Is the HOMTOM HT70 worth buying? If you like mobiles with different designs that are far from the usual standards and, above all, you are looking for a mobile with a bomb-proof battery, without a doubt this is a mobile that can satisfy you enormously. Its hardware without being outstanding provides very good results on a day-to-day basis and for the price it has we could say that it is a good purchase. It is not a smartphone for everyone, and it can be heavy in the pocket, but yes, you will not see the classic message of “low batteryIn a long-long time.You have Telegram installed?
