unboxing & hands on: Kata F2 smartphone (SRP: PHP 3,999)

Kata F2 smartphone from Kata Digital Philippines - 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.3GHz Quad Core, 8MP+5MP Camera, Dual SIM, 1GB RAM & 8GB Storage

Kata Digital Philippine brought here the all new Kata F2, it’s a twin brother of Kata F1s, they look the same, specs are a bit the same but the difference of this Kata F2 is that the screen and power battery is much more superior than his younger brother Kata F1s.

The new smartphone with 1.3Ghz Quad Core processor will soon hit all Kata Stores in the Philippines. There’s no detail for the SRP but I guess this will be around PHP 4,500 and this might obsolete the old Kata F1s because Kata F2 performs more better and with an awesome upgrade for the screen and battery.

What’s new?
The screen is now boosted to perform with a lamination technology, the smartphone display can perform much better even under direct sunlight. The qHD display upgrade also gives clear resolution with improved contrast and riveting color.

In Kata F1s it only comes with a 1550mah battery, but here for Kata F2, the battery is now 1850mah, it can last longer now while you are in mobile internet mode.

I can say that the form is similar to Kata F1s
the difference is that they added some stylish color combination. All white at the front and colored casing at the back.

All white Kata F2 is much stylish and sleek.

I’m glad that they separated the volume and the power control. Some Kata units comes in with a power button and volume control in one side.

Twin love – Kata F1s and Kata F2

I did some browsing and surfing with the Kata F2 , initial impression shows that the screen performs okay and the connection to my wifi is good,

I like the casing, its much more durable, smooth and no edge corners.
