Design and Display

When it come to appearance the Homtom S7 is a beauty to behold with a CNC metallic build and a  sleekness that improves the smartphone’s aesthetics. The Homtom S7 is available in different colour variants which are black, blue and silver. The bezel on both sides of the device has been reduced in combination with the 18:9 aspect ratio to provide more room for viewing.

For display there is a 5.5-inches  640 x 1280 pixel resolution HD IPS panel handling things which is definitely not the best around but is enough for normal day to day activities. It gives a decent viewing experience when watching movies or playing games and does not weigh much on the battery compared to high-res displays.
