UNBOXING KATA I3S.

Kata i3s on-the-go performance review

 

Kata i3s

At first glance we already know that this latest flagship unit from Kata Digital is one device that everybody will love. Kata i3s delivers a good standing performance during our usage.

WELCOME TO YOUR KATA I3S.

Battery performance

Powered with 2,250mAh removable battery, Kata i3s delivers at par performance with other brands and surprisingly, there has been no major heat issues or whatsoever that we have encountered. It only means that Kata has been listening to its consumers and continuously learning the process of giving satisfactory performance of their smartphones.

On the scale of 1 to 5, we are giving the battery performance a remarkable 4-point score.
Turning on data, playing games, taking photos, and video recordings will definitely drain the battery immediately but for the Kata i3s, it can last from 8-12 hours with these activities or even up to 1 day with less of the data used. For non-heavy users where they will provably use the phone for text messaging and occasional picture takings, Kata i3s battery can last 2-3 days.

Below are our screenshots of our Kata i3s battery performance level.

Phone camera and video

The 13MP and 5MP camera gave us a vibrant images and the 5-inch Super HD display can produce crisp and sound video.

We took the Kata i3s on our trip to Hanoi and here are sample shots from the camera:

We give the camera and video 4.5 on a scale of 5.

KitKat 4.4.2 OS and Quad Core Processor

With a Quad Core Processor and Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS, it delivers great performance and on top of that, wireless updates are available from time to time. There has been no news yet if Kata i3s wil be available (soon) for a Lollipop OS update. But with the performance that Kitkat 4.4.2 is giving, that should be a good thing to consider now.

Kata i3s may not be a monster when it comes to whole features and specifications but it can match a mid-range smartphones and iOS you are holding right now. For this we give the Kata i3s, a 4.

Display and design

For the display, look, feel, and design, it’s a go to a 5. Just what we look for a design that is premium-looking but’s not heavy on the budget.  See our Kata i3s first impressions here.

Price point

As for he price point of Php 6,499 it’s another perfect 5. For thpse who are not that brand conscious, Kata i3s is the best buy for a mid-range phone. But then again with the amount of popularity that Kata brand has been getting into these days, we wont be surprised if one day Kata will be a household name in the coming days.

So that’s our review and hope you liked it!

  1. I just want to let you know that the wireless update on my Kata i3s doesn’t installs completely. I purchased this device on December 06, 2014 and yet this dissapoints me much. It is still within 7 days of replacement and since this is a software program issue it should be replace immediately. I don’t want to wait for more than 2 weeks! I’ve already reset my device into factory settings 2 times and still same issue persist. Even the staffs at SM clark done the same thing, reset into factory settings, same issue. I ask them to check it to the same model and they refuse to do it. None of these staffs from SM clark/Pampanga doesn’t know more about this product. They are not technically knowledgeable which is very inconvenient. Do not ever released this kind of smartphone if they will not take a look at this. Very inconvenient!

     
    1. hi there, how did they reset ur fone po? there are 2 ways kasi, one is from settings and the other is from combination of buttons, the last option is more effective in removing downloaded files or data.

       
  2. I think you accidentally interrupt the phone while updating via wifi which results to software crash. You may also consult the doctor for any diagnostics :-)
