Just a few days before the release of the highly-anticipated Kata M2 Quad Core phablet in the Philippine market, we had the opportunity to bring it out for a test just before the whole nation got a hold of this new baby from Kata Digital. Here is our Kata M2 specs and review for the people who follow Kata Digital mobile brands.
Surprisingly, just 24 hours after the Kata M2 Get, Like It Promo was announced and became available in the midnight of August 25, all 1,000 units were sold out in just a few hours. This only means that a new mobile brand player in the country caught the Filipino consumer’s taste when it comes to mobile devices.
Kata M2 is marketed at a price drop-off of Php 6,999 and probably one of the most affordable Quad Core phablet in town with a 5.5 inch Full HD display, a smaller version of its predecessor Kata M1 which we also got at first hand before it was locally released.
Kata M2 was earlier launched in Hong Kong this August and got favorable reviews since it debuted in the region. Kata M2 runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS with Quad Core MTK6582 processor with CPU running at 1.3GHz, which is quite faster for a regular smartphone. RAM capacity at 1,024MB and 16GB internal storage expandable up to 32GB via micro SD slot with initial 5G storage from Kata Cloud. Those who bought Kata M2 on August 25 had their chances to upgrade theirs to 25G on Kata Cloud.
Camera specs is almost the same as the Kata M1 boosting with 13MP auto-focus for main camera with LED flash and 5MP ‘selfie’ camera. With its 1280 x 720, it’s irresistibly perfect for video playback and photo slides. Video recording at 1080p will give its viewer a much definite scope of the videos played. We tested it already for some video capturing and even our fellow Kata fanatics Rafa, Ron, and Azrael could attest the clarity of the videos captured by Kata M2. Photography is also recommendable for this unit.

Battery capacity usage, Bluetooth V4.0 and network data enabled and with live wallpaper can live up from 1-2 days use. Inside is a 2300mAh Li-Po battery. It’s safe to say that the battery life of Kata M2 is comfortably okay with us.
Unboxing Kata M2 package includes earplugs 3.5mm audio jack and micro USB 2.0 cable for charging. Kata M2 has two SIM slots (dual-SIM), one for micro SIM and one for regular SIM card.
Kata M2 weighs approximately at 215g with dimensions of 157 x 77 x 7.98mm.
Comparing to giant mobile brand like Samsung, Kata M2 pricing is much lower at Php 6,999 and surprisingly, not too far from Samsung Note 3 which is priced at Php 22,490.
We have been using Kata M2 as our primary phone since it got delivered to us and we are satisfied of this new phablet model. It’s easy to navigate with a very friendly touch screen display. Plus it got a black carbon fiber matte finish back cover that is totally sassy!
