Kogan Agora quad-core smartphone review


Double the power, but double the performance?

Cheap ; Great specs ; Decent design

Only 4GB on board storage ; Average camera

This phone punches above its weight. For under 200 bucks, it's impossible to argue the value for money case. But there are conditions: there's no 4G, and the 3G will work nicely on Telstra's 3G bands, but not Optus' 900MHz spectrum. The camera also has...

Kogan Agora 5.0" Dual-core Smartphone review


Cheap as chips

The price ; Fully featured ; Decent battery performance ; Good web browsing

Below average screen quality ; Basic software package ; Some stability issues ; Woeful camera

The budget-priced smartphone posed a peculiar problem for technology reviewers. Often we need to look closely to spot the parts of a new gadget that demand attention, and perhaps criticism, but with a cheap phone, these elements are plain to see. But...

Kogan Agora ICS tablet review


How does Ice Cream Sandwich taste in a bargain tablet?

Bargain price ; Decent screen ; Abundance of connections ; Ice Cream Sandwich

Poor battery life ; Average processing power ; Debatable build quality

Australian technology company Kogan has built its success on creating cheap but functional products that offer an alternative to premium priced brand names.

A big-screen Android smartphone at a rock-bottom price.

The usual suspects are all here in terms of general specifications. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, an FM radio and GPS all get ticks. The more fancy features such as HDMI, NFC and 4G support are absent though. And it is worth making special note of the fact that...

Kogan Agora 4G


Motorola may have the budget blower throne locked down with its range of well-priced Moto G and Moto E handsets, but that hasn't stopped other phone makers from stepping up to the plate. Meet the Kogan Agora 4G, the latest budget handset to enter into...

The Moto G has a firm rival on its hands with the Kogan Agora 4G, which gives you plenty of bang for your buck, a solid build quality and a fairly stock installation of Android onboard, and it's bigger too. Kogan and BenQ have simply done a superb job...

Kogan Agora 4G+ review: Is Kogan's best smartphone good enough?


The Agora 4G+ comes with improved memory and a better camera

Inexpensive at $239 ; 5-inch HD display ; Improved 13MP camera ; Double RAM and storage over predecessor

Won't take 64GB storage card ; Plastic body ; Doesn't match some rivals on performance

Kogan Agora 4G review


The BenQ-made smartphone is the best to come from Kogan yet

Big 5in screen ; 4G ; Near-vanilla software

Low-end hardware ; Cheap construction

The Agora 4G is the best budget smartphone to come out of Kogan yet. It feels more refined than its predecessors in spite of being laden in plastic. Top-tier features, such as a large screen and 4G internet, coupled with the low $229 price, make it an...

Kogan Agora HD Android phone


The Agora HD smartphone combines a good display with solid performance, making it great value

Great value for money ; Good display & pleasing performance ; Relatively stock Android experience

Battery life could be improved ; Only 4GB of internal memory ; Erratic ambient light sensor

The Kogan Agora HD smartphone combines a good display with solid performance and retails for a hugely competitive price. It's only let down by a lack of internal memory and below average battery life, but still comes highly recommended for anyone on a...
