Battery life is a never-ending problem these days, with devices coming in slimmer packages with smaller batteries while being counteracted by higher-resolution displays. Optimizations are key to battery performance improvements, and company promises can often matter little when your battery runs out just three hours after taking it off the charger.
HOMTOM is a company that gets the significance of battery life and has two smartphones to remedy this ever-growing problem: the HOMTOM HT6 and HOMTOM HT5.
The DOOGEE HOMTOM HT6 and HOMTOM HT5 have great battery life, though the HOMTOM HT6’s 6,250mAh battery dwarfs the HT5’s 4,250mAh battery. HOMTOM says that the HT6 can last up to a week with light usage, 3 days with heavy use, and provides up to 3 whole days of talk time (72 hours). The HOMTOM HT6 also comes in a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720p and the latest Gorilla Glass for durability. HOMTOM doesn’t explicitly mention Gorilla Glass 4 here, so it’s best to assume Gorilla Glass 3 with caution.
HOMTOM says the HT6 has an “ultra-thin” profile of 9.9mm, but it doesn’t seem that way when you compare it to, say, the 6.8mm profile of the Galaxy S6. At the same time, however, the HOMTOM HT6’s battery life is nearly 2.5 times that of the Galaxy S6, though, and for many, the tradeoff may be worthwhile. With your battery dwindling to 5%, HOMTOM says that your battery can still last 65 additional hours and then use HOMTOM’s “PumpExpress” fast-charging technology to bring your battery back to 75% within 30 minutes.
As for other features, the HOMTOM HT6 comes with a 5MP front camera, 13MP Sony back camera, and has smart gestures for screenshots and data transfers without a Wi-Fi connection (HotKnot), a 1Ghz, quad-core MediaTek MTK6735, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. This package can be yours for a pre-sale price of $139.99 (27% off the original price with GearBest). Both are up for pre-order at Gearbest.com on September 24th, although GearBest has the pre-order date starting on September 17th and stretching until October 15th.
