Dealhacker: Kogan Has A Pretty Good Smartphone For $179

Kogan has launched a new budget Android smartphone dubbed the Agora 6. Priced at a wallet-friendly $179, it packs in some pretty impressive specifications for the asking price. We take a look at the main features.

Not everyone wants or needs a $1000 smartphone. If you’re looking for a cheap option that will get the basics done with some extras, the Agora 6 could be worth considering.

It comes with a 5-inch LED display, a 1.3GHZ Octacore processor, dual SIM card slots, a removable 2050mAh battery, a Micro SD card slot, an 8-megapixel camera, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. The device runs on last generation’s Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. Here are the specifications in full:

Kogan Agora 6
Processor Octacore 1.3GHZ (MTK6753)
GPU Octacore 1.3GHZ
OS Android 5.1
Camera Front: 5MP, Rear: 8MP
Display HD IPS
Battery 2050 mAh
Connectivity Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Dual Micro SIM, Micro USB, Micro SD (up to 32GB), Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz a/b/g/n)
Dimensions 142x70x8mm
Weight 134gm

This is all pretty standard stuff for an entry-level Android phone, although you can usually expect to pay north of $200 for the above specs. As always, its true mettle will come down to handling: is the OS fast and reliable? Is the camera quality acceptable? Is the touch screen up to snuff? If anyone is interested we may put this device to the test in our LH Reviews section. Let us know in the comments.

  • review please. im always interested in how Kogans branded stuff stacks against more reputable brands.

  • We can haz a drop test, a drowning test and a “will it blend” test? kthxbia..

    Also a review would be great..

  • Does the second sim run on 2G only when the other is connected to 3G/4G? If so then it will be pretty much useless as a dual sim when Vodafone and Telstra cease 2G.
