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

  • 1.5Ghz Quad-Core MT6589 Turbo Processor
  • 5.7" 1920×1080 IPS Display
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 13MP Camera + LED Flash, 5MP Front
  • 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, MicroSD
  • 4,000mAh Battery (6H 59M video playback)



  • Long lasting battery
  • Large beautiful display
  • Smooth stock android
  • Camera is above average
  • Lots of memory


  • No one-handed mode
  • Not best for gaming
  • A little pricey


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.
