Review: KOGAN UNIVERSAL POWER BANK

"A stylish slab of aluminium, the Kogan power bank has a massive 20,000 mAh capacity. While it does handle USB charging (though only has a single USB port), it can also output 12V,16V and 19V to run a variety of devices. Juicing up a laptop is the obvious choice, but the Kogan could also run a modern during a blackout (for 24+ hours)."

Ring My Bangle

"With the Kogan Bluetooth Smart Bangle you never have to worry about missing a call again. The bangle vibrates when your phone rings and an LCD screen lights up with caller ID. You’ll know when your phone is ringing, even if it’s buried and inaudible at the bottom of your bag, and you can conveniently screen the caller. Don’t want to talk? Simply press the call reject button on the side of your bangle. A security feature alerts you when you step more than 10 metres from your phone, ensuring it will never be left behind again. Clever."

Kogan Agora Mini 8 Android Tablet Review

"Previous tablet entries have proven the adage “you get what you pay for”, but the Agora Mini 8 starts to break the mould…Straight out of the gate the faster processor and extra RAM make this a far more interesting device than its predecessors... it’s most definitely better than any tablet display I’ve used in its price range…Thanks to being an IPS panel, viewing angles are good, and the display doesn’t invert colours when looked at from even wide angles…During several weeks with the Agora Mini 8, I haven’t experienced any more jerky screens or crashes than any other Android device I’ve tested."

Kogan's $149 Agora Android smartphone review

For a $149 smartphone the Kogan Agora really performs above its class...Navigating the device is pretty zippy and it’s fast to scroll between screens and in and out of apps. In terms of value there isn't a smartphone on the market that can compare pound for pound to the Kogan Agora. With the popularity of the value of mobile SIM only plans, including Kogan’s very own pre-paid plans, that require users to bring their own smartphone to the table, the Agora only adds to the overall value proposition. The addition of being able to run two SIM cards on the device is just an added bonus to the cheap but impressive device.

Hands on: Kogan Agora 5.0" Dual-core Smartphone review

You have to hand it to Kogan…very few can delivery decent technology products as cheaply. The Agora 5-inch phone is perhaps the best surprise yet. If you are looking to maintain two phone accounts simultaneously though, only the Agora can satisfy this request. Having two SIM slots gives the Agora an advantage nearly no other brand-name phone can match.

Kogan Agora Smartphone Review: The Best Bang For Buck In Android

I have a confession: I really didn’t want to like the Kogan Agora smartphone. As soon as I was handed the device and told the price, I immediately relegated it to the cheap and nasty corner. ‘Nothing good can come out of a $150 device,’ I thought to myself at the time. Well readers, I’m here to tell you that I was wrong. The best thing about the Agora is the value proposition. For $149, you get a hell of a lot. When comparing the Agora to the rest of the phones that play around that price, it leaves its competition for dead. On top of the awesome value, the Agora is packing two SIM slots, making it a rare beast in the Australian telco landscape... The 2000mAh battery strapped to this moderately specced Android phone means you’ll easily get two days worth of use out of the Agora before you go scrambling for your charger. Should You Buy It? Sure, it’s no Galaxy Note IV or iPhone 6, but as far as I’m concerned, the Kogan Agora is the mobile embodiment of cheap and cheerful. So should you buy it if you’re in the market for a cheap Android smartphone? For $149, you’re goddamn right you should.

Sizing up a real big bargain

At $149, the Agora would make a tempting proposition to most Google-loving scrooges. It's the same price as some old-school, flip phones and, as Kogan points out, about 20 per cent as costly as a leading smartphone...Perhaps the most impressive feature, though, is the addition of two SIM card slots. Users can slip two full-sized SIMs into this phone, side-by-side, and choose which service they would rather use from the drop-down menu. It's a traveller's dream and one you're unlikely to see from carrier-issued handsets. The Kogan Agora is a worthwhile addition to Google's phone library. It delivers a dual-SIM option for the price of a basic MP3 player and, for that reason alone is a sure bet to find fans.

Kogan announces $149 unlocked Android smartphone with 5-inch screen

Want a smartphone on the cheap? Usually that means going the subsidized route, signing up for a two-year contract that'll cost you a small fortune by the time you're done. The Kogan Agora is an unlocked Android 4.0 smartphone priced at $149 (plus shipping). Due to arrive in the U.S. next month, it'll support no-contract, pay-as-you-go plans from AT&T and T-Mobile. Oh, and it has a 5-inch screen.

It’s cheap as chips at $149 despite boasting some pretty high-end specifications. But can the Kogan Agora kick it with the big boys? Read on to find out. With the 2012 Agora, it looks like Kogan’s onto a winner. This is a model which looks like it will offer at least 90 percent of the performance of smartphones which cost four times as much. At $149 the Agora is almost an impulse buy, but it looks as though it has the guts to come close to being a heavyweight.

Kogan Agora 5.0" Dual-core Smartphone was voted one of the top five phones of CES 2013. "Kogan is a a budget Android smartphone priced to make the Nexus 4 look like a bit of a rip-off. It’s a fairly modest piece of hardware, packing in a 1GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage, and a 5-megapixel camera. But boy is it cheap — at £119, this is the best deal you’re likely to get on an Android smartphone in the near future." "From our hands-on, we left deeply impressed"

Online electrical retailer Kogan, just weeks after launching a mobile service, has unveiled a dual sim 5-inch smartphone which will be available early February [$149]. One of the standout features of the device is the fact it can run two SIM cards simultaneously. "Up until now, full feature smartphones have only been for the rich. We want to make technology more affordable for everyone,” says Kogan founder and CEO Ruslan Kogan. "Before today, a decent smartphone would set you back over $500. For most people, that's more than a week's salary.

Budget Android tablets, while maybe not the most sought after devices, do have a place. And even more so when those already budget prices get even lower. That happens to be the case with the Kogan Agora 10, which has recently been given a price cut. And lastly, the Kogan Agora tablets are running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and come with full access to the Google Play Store. All said and done, not a bad deal if you happen to be shopping for a 10-inch tablet and happen to be on a strict budget.
