HomTom S8, a Galaxy S8 clone, what does it offer?

Although it seems that the time when the clones of most reputable phones were our daily bread, mostly from China, there is still some of that. After the official appearance of the Bluboo S8 in the market it is the turn of the HomTom S8, a new clone of Samsung Galaxy S8. But is it worth buying a terminal that is a clone of another? We will see what it offers us.

The HomTom smartphone is well designed and brings in pretty powerful internal hardware. The no-go screen adopts the fashionable format, the 18: 9 ratio seems to be starting to reign in the smartphone world. On the other hand we have a generous size of 5.7 inches diagonal, curved glass 2.5D and true with a low resolution of 1440 × 720 pixels. The screen occupies 83% of the front panel. Here we find the first differences with respect to the terminal that tries to imitate, the truth is that the specifications of the screen of the HomTom S8 leaves us a little ploff.

The back of the terminal does seem to have received more care. The Chinese manufacturer uses a bright and solid material manufactured by the Japanese company Mitsubishi. The cover curves towards the extremities and in appearance you can say that it looks very good. The thickness of the terminal stays in about 7.9 mm which, by the way, is really good.

In terms of hardware, HomTom S8 is a fairly powerful mid-range smartphone. The device has as its processor the popular octa-core MediaTek MT6750T which is a processor model that equip other direct competitors like the UMIDIGI Cristal and Doogee BL5000 .

The internal configuration is really attractive with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB ROM. Thanks to the memory capacity and powerful processor, the HomTom phablet will have no difficulties even in the most demanding games and applications.

Is it a clone of the Galaxy S8?

HomTom has a 3400 mAh battery while the main camera is dual type with 16MP + 5 megapixels, both sensors manufactured by Sony. The capacity of the battery is able to offer excellent performances of 42 hours of talk time and 680 hours in standby. The main camera is equipped with dual LED flash, which in turn is dual type. For selfies, the user has the front 13 megapixel camera, which is equipped with the function 'Beauty effect'. We'll see how it works.

The terminal has a fingerprint scanner that is placed under double rear camera, something that despite reminding us the Samsung S8 is quite different. The scanner can store up to 5 different fingerprints.

A great advantage that has the system, although at this time of the year becomes less and less advantage, is that the manufacturer has made the decision to use the operating system Android 7.0 Nougat. The phone has dual SIM slot and is compatible with micro USB 2.0 OTG (can connect various accessories, external hard disk simple and fast). The price on Aliexpress is less than 200 dollars.
