The young Chinese brand HomTom seeks to take its place under the sun, masking the budget of its smartphones under a more expensive segment. Sometimes it ends in failure, but in some cases, it leads to a win. If you look at the new smartphone HomTom HT30 Pro, then determine at a glance to what price range it relates to it will be difficult. What can we expect from the new HT30 Pro?
HomTom HT30 Pro: Specifications
HomTom HT30 Pro: Design
The smartphone is made in the form of a classic monoblock with a removable battery. The end of the case is made of metal, the back panel of the smartphone is made of polycarbonate with a velvety texture. It turns out that quality plastic is not so bad – this is once again convinced by HomTom HT30 Pro. The body of the phablet does not give a budget, and the effects of scratches are perceived on this material not so sharply.
The smartphone has a 5.5-inch screen, but due to the presence of small frames, it seems smaller than the actual size. In front, we also see curved glass 2.5D, which is also a positive moment. The screen takes up about 70% of the entire area of the phone. Above the screen are installed – an internal speaker, front camera and a pair of sensors. At the bottom of the screen are three buttons of the touch type for controlling the phone.
On the back of the phone are the main camera, the LED flash, and the fingerprint scanner. The camera sensor and fingerprint scanner are played using thin red lines in a dark blue / black version and a blue line in the case of choosing a white color solution. On the right side of the device stands the power button and the volume control key.
The smartphone has dimensions – length 155.4 mm, width 77.8 mm and thickness 7.9 mm. The weight of the device is 170 g.
The smartphone comes in three colors – white, blue and black.
HomTom HT30 Pro: Screen
The smartphone has a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. IPS-display, which has HD-resolution, is characterized by good brightness and contrast, but a layer of air between the sensor and the glass is present. The top of the screen is protected by a curved glass 2.5D. The image quality, given the budget of the phone, is good. Pixels are distinguishable only with very strong scrutiny. The viewing angles are maximal, there are no problems with color rendition. The brightness reserve is sufficient to work in the room, but on the street, the readability of the image deteriorates.
HomTom HT30 Pro: Performance
The HT30 Pro smartphone is controlled by the 4-core MediaTek MT6580 processor, consisting of 4-cores Cortex-A53 with a maximum frequency of 1.3 GHz.

For the photographic part in the phone are responsible for two photo models for 13 and 5 megapixels. Focusing is available only for the rear camera with a resolution of 13 MP, it also has a choice of various effects, scenes and shooting parameters. It helps the sensor to photograph a single LED flash. The quality of the shooting depends largely on the amount of light. It can effectively shoot only under standard conditions in daylight, at night the quality of shooting is weak.
The front camera has a resolution of 5 MP, this is enough for video calls and selfie.
