Since I got my hands on the newly launched Kata i4 smartphone last weekend, friends have been asking me about this new player in the market and were eager to find out how it compares. It was launched on Friday the 13th of February and I got it on Saturday so I was excited to be one of the firsts to get this phone.
Well, the first things that grabbed my attention was its design. It's so classy. Even the packaging is clean, chic and high end, just like the design of the phone itself.
This US-based brand just launched it's latest Kata i4 in Singapore on Friday (13 Feb). I find that this brand delivers good quality tablets and phones at attractive and affordable prices. What I find sets Kata apart from the other affordable smartphones and tablets we see today is that Kata has an upmarket feel about it (despite the lower prices).
|Brilliant Colours and Clarity
I like the feel of the phone, it feels expensive (thanks to quality materials and construction). It's lightweight and yet not light to the point that it feels cheap (anyone who has had cheapo smart phones in their hands will know what I mean by it feeling cheap).
The specs are also top of the line. With the i4, Kata is introducing its first octa-core phone which delivers faster processors, better cameras and bumped-up storage capacities.
There's so much screen!! I love the colours and clarity of the 5-inch super HD display. The ultra-speed 1.7GHz octa-core processor lets you enjoy multiple apps simultaneously. Its performance is up to my expectations, it is super responsive and does not lag.There are 16MP rear and 8MP back cameras. The camera response is fast and I can edit/filter my snapshot on the phone straightaway.
And I can share it on all my social media pretty instantaneously without having to have or open any additional apps.
