Today is the last day of the Smart Bro Gadget Expo in SM Megamall’s Megatrade Hall 3! We’ve spotted Kata Digital latest budget Android offering, the Kata F1. We got a chance to play around with it and here’s our take!
Kata F1 specs:
- 1.3GHz Quad Core Mediatek MT6592 processor
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB internal memory expandable memory via MicroSD up to 32GB
- 4.5-inch qHD IPS LCD display (960 x 540 pixels)
- 8 megapixel rear facing camera with autofocus and LED flash
- 5 megapixel front facing camera
- Dual SIM, Dual Standby
- HSPA+, WiFi, WiFi hotspor, Bluetooth 4.0
- Quadband GSM, Triband 3G
- 1,350 mAh battery
- Android 4.4 Kitkat
- SRP: P4,499
- Status: Available on Kata stores and kiosks
We have always been impressed on Kata’s build quality because we’ve reviewed quite a few of their phones like the Kata i3, M1 and Venus 3. The F1’s build quality is as good as its siblings. At last, Kata has finally offered a smartphone with color options – Black, Yellow and White. The white unit we played looks elegant. No one can’t guess that’s its only P4,499. We love the patterned design at the back cover of the device. It doesn’t attract fingerprints and smudges too.
Display was surprisingly good too. The qHD display is bright and crisp. The saleslady we talked to said it can play graphic intense games such as Dead Trigger despite its limited 512MB RAM. This is because of its quad core graphics. We also love its generous internal memory of 8GB and still expandable via microSD up to 32GB. Kata has been always generous when it comes to internal memory.
The Kata F1 is a good looking smartphone and smooth performer too. We hope that Kata can provide us a review unit so that we can further test its capabilities. 🙂
