Few months after the announcement of the Kata i4 dubbed as "Fastest Kata Ever", I've had a chance to do a quick demo of the said solid looking device at their concept store at Robinsons Pioneer. I did not waste my opportunity as I was able to take some photos of it, benchmark it and gather some thoughts for this quick review and hands on impressions.
|Meet Kata i4|
For those who missed it, Kata i4 is a phone with 5 inches HD IPS display of 294 ppi. It's powered by the proven octa core 1.7 GHz MT6592 by Mediatek, has an ample 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB ROM and 2,300 mAh of battery. Kata i4 also uses a 16 MP FF rear camera and 8 MP for selfie and video calls.
