First, let check out the design and hardware. We will not elaborate further but this is the most beautiful, well crafted Kata smartphone we’ve ever seen. Kata has been paying attention to details here. Everything from the metal sides, to the front and at the back was put together with precision. Build quality is outstanding too.
What can we expect from an Octa Core device? Obviously it is lag free. Thanks to its generous 2GB of RAM, gaming experience is just mind blowing. Playing Dead Trigger 2 and Clash of Clans is smooth. The vibrant 5-inch display made our gaming and video experience even better.
Aside from the good build quality and smooth software performance, the 16 megapixel and 8 megapixel cameras performs well too on our tests. We have some sample photos here and you’ll be judge how good the camera works.
Kata has nailed it big time with the Kata i4! This is just a gorgeous smartphone! We really can’t take our eyes off on this phone. Such a looker indeed. Performance is blast especially for gaming and the camera is just as good as other high end flagships. Stay tuned for our full review really soon!
