The Kata i3L Personal Review | Techtography


As if the Kata M2L wasn’t enough, Kata recently released another powerful yet affordable smartphone, the Kata i3L. Unlike the Kata M2L, the i3L is more of a phone than a phablet. The sleek thin design is definitely a plus for this new Kata smartphone. I have to digress on our normal reviews as this time, I took the Kata i3L to the test by using as my phone for daily use!


The Initial Impressions on Kata i3L

Upon unboxing the Kata i3L, I immediately felt how light this smartphone is. There was even a time when I forgot that the phone was in my laptop bag. I thought it was already empty when I brought my laptop out. Now this could either be a positive or a negative feature for the Kata i3L. Positive for those who are looking for an affordable yet light phone, and negative to those who rely on the weight of an item to identify whether the item is still there. The thin design was the second thing that I noticed, it can easily fit my pocket.

Onto The Good Stuff of the Kata i3L

Once I turned on the Kata i3L, the first thing I noticed was the bright screen. Well, that is what you get from a phone that has an IPS Super HD Display. Normally when we review smartphones, we first check the speed and performance of the phone and test or find out about its processor. However, with the Kata i3L, we first did a camera test, because taking photos and that all popular selfie is our primary motivator in buying a new smartphone, are we right?

The rear camera is a high-resolution camera with 13megapixels. The front camera is at 8 megapixels. So whichever side you are using for your photo capturing masterpiece, you will definitely capture high-resolution photos.

What is an upgrade if it does not come with awesome features right? For the price of an affordable smartphone, the Kata i3L is definitely built with quality in mind. It is installed with a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor. For more storage, the Kata i3L is equipped with 16GB storage. The 1 GB RAM allow for multitasking power on the i3L although, personally, due to my dependence to using several apps, a 2GB RAM or more would have been better.
