Kata’s entry into the high-end phablet realm, the M1, is fairly interesting one. Not content with giving us the bare minimum of specs, the HK brand wanted to pack a lot into their new flagship device. A large 4,000mAh battery, boatloads of storage and RAM, FullHD screen, high quality cameras, and lastly a decent processor package combines to make the PHP 9,999 device tempting to grab off the shelves. So is it worth picking up or are low-end Octa-Cores the pick for this price range? Check out our review below to find out!
Kata M1 – PHP 9,999
We have to admit, the Kata M1 was a bit of a nice surprise for us. Its stock android interface is so refreshing and clean. While the camera, performance, and most importantly battery life made us appreciate how good a simple, yet high-end phablet can be. The design was understated but elegant, and the size was just right for a large display to live on. While the gaming capabilities may suffer a bit due to the processor and Full HD combination, the stock android interface pulls it back and provides an even smoother interface than more powerful, heavily-skinned phones.
In the end, the Kata M1 provides us with a lot of specs for the (new low) price of PHP 9,999. While it may not punch as heavily as Octa-Core competition in this price range, it beats them with everything else – namely battery, camera, storage, display, and the smoothness of stock android. If you do a little less gaming but need a good phablet that can survive the long haul, then the Kata M1 might be for you.
