Well, some of the Ottoman mosques(especially large ones) based on Hagia Sofia, but as a whole Ottoman mosques have it's own style since they mixed many architectural styles. "Round domes" concept comes from Byzantine churches, for example Anatolian Seljuks were using conical domes while Ottomans never used it. But they used conical supporters around domes, used neo-classical details on windows or art-deco, baroque style on bases.

So it's not right to call Ottoman mosques as Byzantine style since Byzantine architecture is not the only one they inspired. Ottoman Turks were very advanced on architecture and created their own style by following the civilizations that lived before them.

Here is the Ortaköy mosque which is built in baroque style


Dolmabahçe mosque, this one in classical style of late Ottoman period.


Or here is ancient Anatolian inspired Teşvikiye Mosque, a neo-classical example.


But like you said some Ottoman/Turkish mosques are completely based on Hagia Sofia such as famous Blue Mosque. But still it's better to call it Ottoman style since Ottomans were also same people who ruled same lands and practiced same culture, architecture..


Btw sorry for late reply
