Kogan Reckons Its $349 Phone Is 'Comparable' To The Samsung Galaxy S7

The Agora 6 Plus is Kogan's flagship high-end smartphone, and at $349 comes complete with a fingerprint sensor, aluminium body and NFC technology. "Its features are comparable to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7," Kogan says, "but for a fraction of the cost." We take a look at the specs.

The Kogan Agora 6 Plus comes with Android 6.0, a 5.5-inch FHD IPS display, 21MP rear camera (with a Sony IMX230 Sensor), 8MP front camera, dual SIM, and Helio P10 Octa-Core Processor (MTK6755, 4 x 2.0GHz, 4 x 1.2GHz).

"This is the best smartphone we have ever made," said Russell Proud, Product Manager at Kogan. "Our customers have been crying out for us to include the same features as the high end smartphones for a reasonable price."

"The look and feel of the phone is second to none for this price point. We think this will compare very well side-by-side with the lauded Samsung Galaxy S7, but for around one-third of the price."

The Agora 6 Plus also features 3GB RAM, 32GB Storage a MicroSD Card Slot for an extra 128GB, Wi-Fi (a/b/g/n), GPS and Bluetooth 4.2.

What do you guys think? Does Kogan have a chance as this being comparable to the Galaxy S7? When we get our hands on one, we'll let you know our thoughts. But for now, the answer is a "probably nah, hey?".


    If it runs on Marshmallow, why does the UI have the KitKat SMS icon?

    Most of the stuff i've bought from kogan ive had to throw out because it was rubbish, so i wonder what its really like, they should sent Lifehacker (or me) a unit to test asap, who knows, may be good enough to switch from iPhone (according to the batterylife app, my iPhone 6 battery max capacity is down to 74% after only 319 cycles, had it since 26th Jan 2014).

      Most of this phone is just the SoC they handle almost everything and it's from a good manufacturer MediaTek. The image sensor is an all in one for Sony. So I guess it comes down to screen and battery, to a degree software. I am a bit curious as why only 3gb of ram and not 4 to try compete spec wise a bit more but I assume price had something to do with this. Packaged well it could be a great budget phone or it could be like a lot of kogan products and a bit of the ol get what you pay for.

        Also the case build quality, most kogan stuff ive bought has fallen apart with regular use.

    Don't you love bs like “This is the best smartphone we have ever made,” said Russell Proud, Product Manager at Kogan. Why not just take a less 1990's marketing tact and say "this is the best smartphone we've ever imported from China" and take pride/proud in telling it as it is! duh. such marketing gibberish makes kogan customers less proud of Kogan Mr Proud!
