Kata is a brand that’s based in Hong Kong and the Philippines, is relatively new in the local scene. Kata products are geared toward the budget-conscious crowd but the company is able to strike a good balance between low price and good quality. I have tried Kata phones and tablets before and I was quite impressed with how good they are for the price they are being offered.
The new budget Android handset from Kaya is the Venus 3, a follow-up to the Venus S. The Kata Venus 3 features a 4-inch LCD display and packs a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 5MP rear camera, and a 1.2MP front-facing camera. The rest of the main specs include 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable), dual-SIM functionality and 1,600mAh battery.
Here are the full specs of the Kata Venus 3.

What’s good about the Venus 3 is the price. If you get it now, you can purchase one for only Php3,999. This is an introductory price as the actual price of the Venus 3 is Php4,999. Of course there are also other options in the market as the budget-phone market has several players like Cherry Mobile and MyPhone but it wouldn’t hurt if you check other brands out.
