New quad-core Kogan Agora offers 5in display, Android 4.2.2 for £149

New quad-core Kogan Agora offers 5in display, Android 4.2.2 for £149Australian firm Kogan raised eyebrows back in January when it announced the Agora, a dual-core Android 5-incher with a seriously impressive £119 RRP.

Well, now there's a new Agora on the scene, the Agora Quad-Core Smartphone to use its full title, and while the price has gone up to £149, you get plenty of extra bang for your extra buck.

As with most entry-level devices, you're in the wrong place if you're looking for sophisticated apps or cutting-edge design. What you do get is a spec sheet you have no right to expect at this price.

It starts with a 5in IPS display with a 720p resolution, and also includes a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP/2MP cameras, 4GB of storage, a 2,000mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Kogan sells its products directly to the public rather than relying on a distribution network – part of how it keeps its costs down – and will have the Agora in stock from October 9, though you'll have to wait another week or so after that for delivery.

Pretty much unlike any other phone with the same specs and looks...
Blessed be the choosy

Quite a bargain at that price. I bet CPU is quad core A7, which is slow, but has low power consumption.
Seems like an excellent budget phone with long battery life.
