HomTom S8 Smartphone

Design and Display

This is a low mid-range smartphone. And for the price, we can say this is an attractive device. Its edges curve both on the front and back, making it look more appealing and premium. The rear cover features durable composite material with a glossy finish.

At 5.7 inches, the HomTom S8 is no small device. But its edge-to-edge display somewhat draws attention away from the bulk. This has an aspect ratio of 18:9 that should make for great content viewing. The touchscreen features a resolution of 720 x 1,440 pixels and 2.5D curved glass.

Camera

HomTom follows the latest trend by equipping the S8 with dual rear cameras for a ‘more breathtaking view.’ The main unit boasts 16 megapixels while the second has 5 megapixels. These two combine to deliver shots with less noise, greater details, and decent bokeh effects.

Selfie enthusiasts may expect decent showing on this one. HomTom S8 packs a 13 megapixel sensor for high resolution selfies.

Hardware and Other Features

The HomTom S8 shouldn’t disappoint for the price, with an octa-core MediaTek MT6750T. Speed of this maxes at 1.5 GHz – not bad, actually, we’re talking eight cores! The 64-bit CPU pairs with a Mali T860 graphics solution. Throw in 4 GB of RAM and you have a device that promises to do you good in terms of performance.

Usually, 64GB onboard storage should be enough. But Doogee didn’t stop there. You will still be able to expand storage by another 128 GB using a microSD card. The 3,400mAh battery on offer supports fast charging. On the rear, the HomTom S8 features a fingerprint scanner that unlocks very fast.

Pricing and Availability

HomTom S8 is not officially available in Nigeria, but you may be able to buy the phone from a third party seller at Jumia. The price starts at $159.99 at Gearbest. HomTom S8 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from 60,500 Naira to 110,000 Naira depending on your location in Nigeria.
