HOMTOM S9 Plus: a bezel-less 6 inch smartphone for just $159.99
Launched in late September, the flagship HOMTOM S9 Plus has quickly joined the league of the bestselling bezel-less smartphones - iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy 8, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, etc. However, unlike most other edgeless models, the S9 Plus comes with a relatively modest price tag of just $159.99. So what does the phone have to offer besides the stunning screen? Let's find out.
HOMTOM S9 Plus: display & design
|Highlights: 5.99 inch FHD screen, 1440x720 resolution, 18:9 ratio, slim design|
The key highlight of the HOMTOM S9 Plus is, naturally, its bezel-less display - the 5.99 inch FHD screen is the first thing of note. The phone's large display creates an expansive view, the main benefit of which is, of course, more space for all sorts of video content. Your phone turns into a mini TV and opens up plenty of opportunities for watching TV shows and movies, playing games and so much more. The screen comes with 1440x720 resolution and sports an 18:9 ratio.
Despite the large screen, the phone has been designed with portability in mind and sports a slim frame. It also features increased touch sensitivity, which makes operating the device smooth and simple.
Even though large screen phones tend to be more vulnerable to damage, the manufacturers have put a lot of effort into strengthening the phone's core. The S9 Plus is made from nano-composite material and promises to be scratch and drop resistant.
HOMTOM S9 Plus: performance & features

When it comes to functionality, the HOMTOM S9 Plus offers a very decent performance, especially if you take into account the phone's modest price tag. First, you have the powerful Octa-core MTK6750T processor capable of efficient multitasking, smooth video playback, demanding mobile gaming and more. The processor is clocked at 1.5 GHz and you won't be bothered by any lagging in performance.
You will have the familiar and improved Android 7.0 at your fingertips with all the benefits that it brings, including easy access to the Play Store where you can load up the device with the latest apps and games.
When it comes to storage, you will have 64GB of built-in storage plus the option of increasing that with 128GB more on an SD card. The S9 comes with the standard 4GB of RAM – more than enough for daily operations. Thanks to Bluetooth 4.0, the phone sports quick and smooth connectivity with other devices: headphones, speakers, etc. For connectivity, you have the support of two nano SIMs, 4G LTE network and GPS support for efficient navigation.
HOMTOM S9 Plus: camera

A smartphone's camera capabilities are one of the main factors affecting a phone purchase decision. As the saying, the best camera is the one you have with you. Thus, having a phone with a strong camera is definitely beneficial for everyday use.
The HOMTOM S9 comes with dual cameras. At the rear, you have a 16MP camera equipped with a strong flashlight, and a front 13MP cam for quality selfies and video chats with friends.
A thing of note here is that unlike with most smartphone models, the S9's front camera is positioned in the bottom left corner. Despite the unusual placement, it will not affect your selfie-taking ability and you will be able to snap quality pics quickly thanks to touch focus and auto-focus.
HOMTOM S9 Plus: battery life
|Highlights: 4050mAh built-in battery|
As we all well know, the larger the screen, the more power the phone consumes. Having taken that into consideration, the S9's manufacturers have equipped the phone with a 4050mAh battery, allowing the phone to stay "live" for longer, especially with the auto settings for brightness and contrast.
|The HOMTOM S9 Plus is an affordable bezel-less smartphone.|
If you are eager to explore all the advantages of having a large screen bezel-less smartphone, but are not quite ready to drop a hefty some on some of the pricey models from Apple or Samsung, the HOMTOM S9 Plus is a very nice option to explore. At just $159.99, you will be able to make full use of a 6 inch edgeless display with FHD resolution and 18:9 ratio. Backed up by a strong processor, Android 7.0, plenty of storage space and two quality cameras, the HOMTOM S9 Plus is a competitive smartphone on today's market.
