TechSpot: Kogan Agora 4G Budget Smartphone Review

The entry-level smartphone market is so big these days that basically every company out there wants a slice of the pie. Everyone from HTC, Nokia and Samsung to Asus, Motorola and Xiaomi have devices on sale in the $200 price segment, some of which are decent and others which require a bit more polish.

One company looking to increase their exposure worldwide and grab a slice of that sweet entry-level pie is Kogan. Although the brand is known in Australia, especially their low-cost TVs, the Agora 4G represents their first real push into smartphones on a global scale. The phone is available online in most countries around the globe, including the US, where it retails for just $219. This places it in very close company with handsets like the 2014 Motorola Moto G, and the recently-reviewed Asus Zenfone 5, albeit for a $50 premium.

The Agora 4G is actually manufactured by BenQ’s ODM division, as indicated by a small BenQ logo on the back of the handset. The phone’s standout feature is its 5.0-inch 720p display, paired with a Snapdragon 400 SoC. On the back you’ll find an 8-megapixel camera, and inside is a sizable 2,500 mAh battery.
