Kata T4 Consumer Review!

When we arrived at the Kata event we didn't expect to be so excited when we got a little glimpse of the tablet. Our excitement was undermined when the T4 was finally announced in flesh in blood where we could have our hands-on on it. The build quality and design is spectacular where majority of its body made of aluminium with polycarbonate details.

Kata Skin is near stock
Easy to Navigate and little learning curve
Built-in VPN subscription service to use the services Netflix, History, FoxNow and the like within the Philippines
Built-in Kata Apps are a hit or miss


Most Apps runs smoothly but slower than flagships
Modern Non Graphic Intensive games work well
Modern Graphics Intensive games stutter and fall apart

What We Liked:

Build Quality
Value - Bang per buck is high

Perfect alternative for E-Book reading
Built-in VPN subscription service works but at a price

What We didn't Like:

8GB starting storage when tablet is marketed for media consumption
Audio Volume could be better
Netflix, History, FoxNow, The CW and the like are a hit or a miss even when VPN service is active

1024 by 768 Resolution. Display Pixel density should start at 1080P standard for a product marketed for media consumption


Great for E-book reading and light productivity
If you are willing to compromise on media consumption quality then this is the best for the price!
