Triste Gatto said...

Hi sir... Can you help me porting CWM Recovery on this phone? Closed na kasi Group nila sa fb...

sniper said...

Owtel Shop has now free software upgrade for Kata i1... to enhance the quality of the phone's specs & maximize to 1.2Ghz

Jojo Lopez said...

I am only concern sa storage capacity, as the phone is very good in terms of durability, and having loads of stuffs.

Jojo Lopez said...

Maganda sana sya panlaban sa mga branded smart phone, pero ang problema ay ang storage capacity, madaling mapuno kapag panay ang update ng mga APPS. the 32GB expandable is no use as the phone didn't read it or recognised it so you don't have enough storage where to install the Apps. ok lang sana kahit mga 8GB ROM. beside walang mga software online support.

Sa setting ng camera [VIDEO] meron na dyan video duration po, set mu po sa 60 minutes [Maximum] baka 10 seconds lng yung video duration.

Ozelle Salgado Felix said...
