Watch our Kata T Mini 2 unboxing here.
As soon as we unwrapped the T Mini 2 package and grab a hold of the unit, we were already sold of the smoothness and crisp display of the device. The size 190.00 mm x 102.00 mm x 9.40 mm is almost the perfect dimension for a tablet. Not small and not too big. The plastic body material allows the hand to easily touch the frame while the smoothness of the screen allows the fingers to navigate easily the UI of T Mini 2.
The usual bloatware are found on this device and you can add and install your favorite app using Google Play Store.
We’ve measured its performance by the AnTuTu Benchamark and here’s what we’ve got.
We took the unit on our daily drive and found out that the T Mini 2 excels in movie playback and gaming entertainment. We enjoyed our favorite movies online via iflix and downloaded popular games like Terminator Genisys and Marvel’s Future Fight.
We enjoyed using T Mini 2 as it is a great companion while on the road traveling and chilling out while waiting for the next gig of the day.
Camera wise, T Mini 2 has an 8MP rear and 5MP front facing snapshots equipped with Auto Focus and Digital Zoom.
Performance point, we are almost satisfy of what it can give to a not-so hard core game users like myself. But one thing that I’ve noticed on maximum usage, the device came running, slow taking it too long to refresh to another page while on WiFi. This is the littlest issue that I’ve encountered while test-driving the unit. I think an upgrade to an Octa-core processor will solve this issue.
If you’re looking at affordable priced tablet in the market today, the T Mini 2 is your option for budget gadget shopping. T Mini 2 is inexpensively priced at PhP 4,999 and sold at Kata outlets nationwide.
If you have cars and have Waze installed, T Mini 2 is a great travel companion for traffic updates and monitors because of its GPS support while navigating on the road.
Because we find that its Quad core Media Tek MT8382 processor runs slow on average use and we believe that an Octa core upgrade would be much better, we’re giving T Mini 2 a 4.5/5 score. Still a high score for us. If you cant’ wait for another T Mini upgrade, this one’s for you.
