About HOMTOM MODE UI :
HOMTOM is a sister brand of the renowned Chinese phone maker DOOGEE and specializes in producing phones with insanely large batteries and rugged design. Founded in 2009, HOMTOM transliterates into Chinese words ‘Heng Tong’, which means ‘lasting, eternal’.
HOMTOM aims to produce long-lasting and powerful phones with massive battery life at an affordable price. Initially, the company aimed to create smartphones with bigger batteries, but with the passage of time it started adding more features, including waterproofing. ISO 9001, 2008 and other domestic certifications instill confidence, while the company also has a long history of research and innovation.
Instead of copying other smartphone manufacturers, HOMTOM offers something customers always wanted i.e. longevity and battery life. Many customers give more importance to battery life and durability over specs, design and other features. As its brand department was founded in 2015, the company is still not very well known and is in its early stages. However, the brand is rapidly gaining popularity, thanks to massive batteries, use of long-lasting materials and exquisite designs.
