Kata T Mini Short Hands On Review


Is it a phone or a tablet? Well, according to Kata it is both. The Kata T Mini is one of the company’s newest offerings. We spotted one on at the recently concluded Smart Bro Gadget Expo.


Kata T Mini specs:

  • 1.3GHz Dual Core Mediatek MT8312 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal memory expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB
  • 6.95-inch WSVGA LCD display (1024 x 600 pixels)
  • 3.2 megapixel rear facing camera
  • 1.2 megapixel front facing camera
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG (on-the-go), Cast Screen Technology
  • GPS, A-GPS
  • 2,600 mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 Kitkat
  • SRP: P4,999
  • Status: Available on Kata stores and kiosks


At first, we thought that the T Mini is a WiFi only model so we were surprised to see this demo unit with phone capabilities. Not just that, it is dual SIM capable too!

Anyway, this is a huge phone but a little too small for a tablet. Despite its huge body it is quite lightweight. It is manageable to hold with one hand but just by holding it. You need to two hands when operating it.

Display is decent but resolution is fairly low (1024 x 600 pixels). We noticed that the demo unit has games like Dead Trigger. We played for a while and the game ran smoothly thanks to its 1GB RAM.

So far when it comes to performance, it passed with flying colors. We want to do a more thorough review of the Kata T Mini once we were given a review unit hopefully soon. 🙂
