HomTom S99i: 6200 mAh, complete with basic TTX

At last year's smartphone HomTom S99 wound up a younger brother.

Model HomTom S99i is different from the strashrelative is pretty strong: for the most part stuffing, but even from the first glance you can find out where that is possible. HomTom S99i deprived of a specific “cellular” notches on the body.

Reduced memory - from a decent 4 GB + 64 GBup to a very modest 2 GB + 16 GB. The relatively low flight eight-core chipset was replaced by a more recent, but less powerful 4-core MediaTek MT6739WW. They selected the raw resolution of the camera and set the standard: 13 MP + 2 MP as the main photo module (13 MP is the interpolated value, that's 8 MP) and a 5 megapixel front camera.

From the former luxury, thus, there is only a crazy battery capacity - 6200 mAh with support for charging other devices.

There was no need to change the screen, and so it was not luxurious - just a normal 5.5-inch HD +. The fingerprint scanner is there, also supported by unlocking the face.

A little fresher Android - 8.1 instead of 8.0.

The result is a solid class smartphoneslightly higher than the initial, but with a super battery. A bit cheaper than a senior friend - about 7,530 rubles. So the HomTom S99 is two thousand rubles more expensive, but just now the price has dropped to 8100 rubles, as a result, the novelty does not look perfect.
