Unboxing and Initial Impressions of the New and Improved Kata F1s

Are you a Katanatic? Well, good news for the fans, after the successful release of the Kata M2, Kata releases its upgraded version of the fast selling KATA F1, the F1S.IMG_20141003_114020

So what’s been upgraded against the old version?

Well, let’s start with the processor. From a 1.2GHz Dual Core MTK 6572 processor, the F1S now sports a MTK6582M Quad Core 1.3GHz – so besides from upping the type of processor used, the F1S now has twice the processors as its predecessor.

Even the frequency of the phone has been increased from using 2G technology to Tri-Band 3G 850/1900/2100.

Another significant difference is the RAM and the ROM… from 512 to 1 gig ram, and  from 4 gig internal memory to 8gig internal memory.

The body is reminiscent of the M2 which we reviewed a couple of days ago with rounded corners which reminds me of another brand that I reviewed recently.

Battery wise – its the same as its predecessor – lets see how it lasts with the way I use mobile phones.

I also started installing my usual suspects for the games I like to use..

Camera 8MP back and 5 MP front.

For antutu lovers – here is its initial score…
