could we see some like for like comparison shots of this phone next to the Galaxy Note 1 please. They look near identical, cosmetically.
I've had this for a month now and am quite happy with it. Reasonably quick, and I don't get the WiFi issues mentioned here.As an ageing gent ;-) with slowly failing eyes, I actually bought it for the big Low Res (by todays standards) screen as I can see the larger text in emergencies without my glasses!It's a perfectly sevicable phone and looks more expensive than it is.
Would not recommend buying this phone. As soon as it came out of the box the screen had a bubble effect when touched. Kogan do not sell a case for the phone, which you need as the phone is very flimsy. The phone lasted about 2 and half weeks from purchase. The screen totally stopped working. Sent back on warranty and was told I have to pay them $38 postage to get the phone back and said the fault was user damage. The phone was unfixable. They said they were being very generous about waiving the technician fees.
I'm very happy with my Kogan Agora smartphone and the Kogan network that I've chosen to go with. I'm going to get one for my wife now as well. It's actually better than I thought it would be. I like the screen because it's not highly polished like some are these days and are too subject to reflection. It's quick enough and I'm used to using an iPad on our home Wifi so this compares OK. I bought the 5 year warranty so I'm comfortable. The dedicated case is good enough but the binding around the edge started to come off after a week.
please don't decide to buy agoramobileits battery is too worstI'm not happy with this mobile
I bought a Kogan Agora mobile phone earlier this year,and it worked a treat for a week then wouldn’t allow me to receive or make calls.With my employment being in the health sector, communication is vital.
I sent the phone back to Kogan, to the credit of Kogan, theye-mailed me and told me what had to be done in order for a refund, instead Ithought I’d get another one, only to find after a few months it did the samething, again with communication being a vital part of my employment, mydecision was to purchase a proven product, which is exactly what I did, it didcost a great deal more, however, I haven’t had a communication problem since.
The old adage “YOU GETWHAT YOU PAY FOR” rings true where this product is concerned.
If your personal / professional life relies on reliablecommunication, my advise is “DON’T TOUCHTHIS COMMUNICATIONS PRODUCT WITH A BARGE POLE” somewhere along the line you will unfortunately regret it.
So, what happened to my second Agora, I can tell you that Inever sent it back, I placed in the drive way and drove the 4x4 Landcruiser over it … “OH WHAT A FEELING”
