With a price of just $219 I wasn’t expecting much, I honestly thought, it’s just another cheap knock-off, but it actually has decent specs and reading more you’ll find the low price is intentional to get a decent phone into everyone’s hands. The Agora 4G from Krogan has Benq branding on it as Benq and Korgan have partnered for this phone which should say something right there, at least I think it does. Anyway, the phone has a Quad Core CPU, microSIM slot, 5” HD display and of course, like the name suggest, it’s 4G LTE. The phone comes with 1gb ram and 8gb storage but you can use a microSD card to expand that. The Agora also has an 8mp rear camera and a 1.2mp front camera along with FM radio built-in and of course Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and it’s running Android 4.4.2 or KitKat . More details below for you…
Kogan Agora 4G, the best value 4G Android smartphone in the world, was today launched in the United States for just $219.
Available exclusively from Kogan.com, the Kogan Agora 4G combines a top class feature set with solid build quality. The features and feel of this smartphone are normally found in models costing at least twice as much.
Running on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS, it sports a crisp 5” HD display, Lightning 4G LTE Connectivity, full day battery life, and a snappy Quad Core processor. All this in a beautiful package.
The Kogan Agora 4G even beats the Moto G in every benchmark measure.*
In a first, Kogan and BenQ have partnered to create the device, which will make the combined power of 4G and Quad Core available to more people than ever before.
Ruslan Kogan, CEO and founder of Kogan.com, said the launch of such an affordable device gives everyone the power to enjoy the high speeds of a 4G network.
“Full feature smartphones with 4G connectivity are still out of reach for many customers in the US.
“I applaud companies like Google releasing devices such as the Nexus 5, which at about $350 is priced better than Samsung’s Galaxy S5 or Apple’s iPhone. But all these phones are still too expensive for many people — especially when they’re also being asked to upgrade every year.
“We’re releasing a quality device that smashes the competition on the price, yet packs all the features consumers expect from a high end smartphone.
“This is a truly beautiful phone. It feels great in your hands, has a big high definition screen, and offers 4G connectivity at an incredible price point. I can’t wait for people to get to enjoy it,” Kogan said.
