Kata M2 LTE Unboxing and First Impressions


Kata Philippines has been making a lot noise lately with the grand launch of the Kata Box, the Kata T4 tablet and very recently, the Kata M2 LTE.

What’s inside the box?

  • Kata M2 LTE unit
  • USB cable
  • Wall Adapter
  • Earphones



The Kata M2 LTE resembles the Apple iPhone 6s Plus a little bit when looking at it at a certain like angle like side view or at the front. Flip it at the back and it reminds us of the Samsung Galaxy S4 a bit. Its rounded corners make the M2 LTE manageable to hold with one hand though we find the unit a little slippery. We hope Kata could sell cases for this.

Now let’s check the buttons and ports:

  • Left – volume rockers
  • Right – power/lock button
  • Top – 3.5mm headset jack and USB charging port
  • Bottom – microphone and speaker grill
  • Back – 13 megapixel rear facing camera with flash
  • Front – 5.5-inch display, sensors, and 5 megapixel front camera

We will be using the Kata M2 LTE as our daily driver for a week. Definitely, we will be testing its LTE reach, camera, performance and battery endurance. So far, we are very impressed with the hardware and never encountered any hiccups on our first 24 hours using it. 🙂
