This Is The New $229 Kogan Agora

The Android market seems to have been split in two of late: the battle of the biggest, baddest superphones alive with the Galaxy S5, One M8 and LG G3, and the war for the wallet with cheap phones like the Nexus 5, Moto G and Moto E. As of today, there’s a new contender that hopes to level the cheap end of the playing field: the latest, updated Kogan Agora.

Kogan is no stranger to pumping out cheap Android phones with exceptional bang for buck. This will be the third Agora phone from Kogan, after we gave the last one our personal thumbs-up for purchase. Largely, you’re getting the same phone this time around, but with a few extra trimmings on the side.

The new Agora features the same 1.2GHz quad-core processor as its predecessor, the same 5-inch screen, the same 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The new Agora gives you more than its bigger brother by featuring Category 4 4G antenna on the 700MHz, 900MHz and 1800MHz bands, expandable storage up to 64GB by virtue of a MicroSD card and Bluetooth 4.0.

The Kogan Agora 4G goes on sale from 5 August and will set you back $229 (plus delivery). That puts it right in the middle of the Moto G ($299) and Moto E ($179).

The war for your dollar rages on!

Stay tuned for our full review of the Agora 4G next week
