Dogee’s HomTom HT6 smartphone is the second in our series of phones with huge battery capacities. The HomTom HT6 smartphone falls in the category of stuff you would find yourself reluctant to buy because it is just too good to be true.

When the HomTom HT6 was launched 5 months ago, it sold at about $140. Checking the online store Gearbest, it is now sold at about $123. So what is too good to be true about it? For starters, there is the battery, with a rating of 6250 mAh. Not too many smartphones come close to that. Only our good old Gionee M5 at 6020 mAh comes close. But then, the Gionee is more than twice the cost of the HomTom HT6.

So the battery is very impressive, what else makes this phone such a big deal? To have an informed opinion about the phone, it’s best to read up this brief outline of the other specifications.

Display, Design and Dimensions
The HomTom HT6 has a dimension of 153.8 x 77 x 9.9mm making it a rather large phone. This can be explained by the size of the screen. At 5.5 inch, this certainly is a big display. The small bezel adds an all round nice touch to the design.

The 728 x 1280 display resolution, though not at par with high end devices, is still good enough to give sharp, clear images on the screen. However, the phone is still a HD IPS display device with Corning Gorilla Glass to give added toughness to the screen.

Processor, Memory and Storage
The HomTom HT6 is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It is powered by an on-board quad core MTK6735P chipset with a processing power of 1.0 GHz. Also part of the software is a Mali T720 GPU to handle all graphics-related operations. The on board memory is rated at a decent 2GB of RAM.

For storing files such as videos and photos, 16 GB of storage space is provided. This can be further expanded with a microSD card. The external storage can take up to 32 GB.

The camera specs are not bad either. The primary camera is a Sony camera rated at 13MP. And for the selfie-lovers, a decent 5MP camera is provided at the front.

Dogee were considerate enough to include a fast charging feature for the 6250 mAh battery. Because it won’t be funny to spend hours upon hours trying to charge such a huge battery. According to Dogee, the fast charging feature, apart from making sure the HomTom HT6 doesn’t get hot, can give you 75% charge within 30 minutes. How hot is that!

Now you’ve seen the specs, how can you not agree that at $123, this 4G LTE phone is just too good to be true? You can get the phone through Gearbest. They ship to Nigeria and have a great customer support for Nigerians.
