Kata i2 Review: Better Than Before

MULTIMEDIA: Continued

Camera/Video:

Camera Interface

The camera and video share the same interface, at the left you will see the camera modes. At the upper right is the thumbnail of the last photo/video taken, below it is the camera and video shutters.

Camera Settings

The main camera is capable of shooting 8MP pictures and 720p videos. It also supports taking photos (2.5MP) while video recording.

In video mode, clips are saved in .3gp format. The video quality High and Fine are both 720p @ 30fps but with different codecs as shown below. It also zooms first on the subject before starting to record.

Fine Quality

Audio: Codec -  mp4a: MPEG-4 AAC LC, 24000Hz  96 kb/s tot , stereo (2/0)

The overall camera performance is a mixed bag, sometimes even you have good lighting conditions the pictures are still a bit shady or dark. So I would recommend you to take several shots in order to get the best possible photo. For video recording, I would recommend to set the video quality to high to save storage.


Browser:

Browser

The Kata i2 browser is a stock Android app, it supports up to 16 tabs and has incognito mode. The i2 has pre-installed flash player so viewing pages with flash content is no problem. Due to the low pixel density, it is still hard to view the website in desktop mode so mobile mode is still recommended.

Gaming:

Pou
Candy Crush Saga
Zombie Tsunami
Subway Surfers
Temple Run 2

I installed some of the top free games in the Play Store like Pou, Candy Crush Saga, Zombie Tsunami, Subway Surfers and Temple Run 2 and all of them works without any issue.

Pants vs Zombies 2
Dead Trigger
Dungeon Hunter 4
Asphalt 7

Graphics-intensive games like Asphalt 7, Dungeon Hunter 4 and Dead Trigger are all playable without hiccups or problem.

Storage

The i2 has 16GB of storage but only 13.76 Gigabytes are available to the users and it is subdivided in two parts 3.94GB for internal storage and 9.82 for phone storage. The apps and games can only be stored either on those two locations you cannot move them to external storage.
