Kata Philippines also has something for those who want a decent entry-level device.
Probably what distinguishes the Kata C2 among other smartphones within the same price range is its metal build quality. Most other handsets are made up of plastic. And while that’s okay, there are still people who prefer something a little more sleek.
Aside from that, it’s pretty standard on the inside. It’s got a 5.5-inch 720p screen, MT6580 quad-core chipset, and 1GB of RAM. The C2 also has 8GB storage with expansion of up to 64GB.
