Quick Review of Homtom HT16

Homtom HT16 has a good display with universal standard specification. The CPU and GPU are very low profile and not the type of great performers. The same goes to 1GB RAM. That is not at all good for multitasking. It may also results in lagging user experience. The internal storage has only 8GB space. The Android 6.0 OS would take almost half of the storage. The remaining storage space won’t be nice to store lot of media files.

Cameras are average and reasonable for this price. The only feel good factor is the battery with 3000mAh capacity. The major lacking things are 4G LTE and fingerprint scanner.

Though the specifications are poor, the price equalize all of them and make it a worthy for a try.
