Design and Display
One of the most important feature of a smartphone is its design, the Homtom HT30 Pro is made from metal and a polycarbonate material covering the back of the phone. This gives the HomTom HT30 Pro a nice feel to the touch making the device relatively easier to handle while at the same time providing comfort. With a thickness of 7.9mm and weighing about 170g the smartphone is easy to hold with no strains from carrying for too long due to heavy weight.
The Homtom HT30 Pro is equipped with a 5.5 inch 720 x 1280 pixel resolution HD display backed up with IPS screen technology which is kind of out of trend with the availability of better and more colourful high resolution display. However, the HD display is enough to cater for your daily basic viewing experience.
When it comes to taking pictures, the Homtom HT30 Pro is not really the best choice to go for. The smartphone comes with an 8MP camera which is interpolated into 13MP which results in not too quality images. Although taking pictures in a full light gives decent pictures low, taking pictures in low light might not be as it should.
For selfies there is a 2MP sensor which is also interpolated to about 5MP. This capable of capturing decent selfies for this price segment of smartphones. In addition, it also record 480p while the rear camera has a 720p video resolution both at 30fps.
Hardware and Software
A look on the inside reveals a MediaTek MT6737 Soc with 4 cores running at 1.25GHz powering up the Homtom HT30 Pro. In addition, there is an ARM Mali-T720 MP2 graphics processing unit (GPU) taking care of the graphics.
The Homtom HT30 Pro features a 3GB RAM alongside a built-in storage of 32GB which is expandable to about 64GB with a memory card. It also runs on Android 7.0, with all the benefit the Nougat OS brings.
