The Kogan Agora may not be the cheapest budget tablet around, but its feature count helps to justify its slightly higher price tag.

80% Kogan Agora 7in Tablet PC Review
Source: Stuff TV English
The Kogan Agora may not be the cheapest budget tablet around, but its pound-for-pound feature count helps to justify its slightly higher price tag. Build quality is surprisingly solid but the hardware and Android 2.3 OS are mismatched. There should be Back, Home, Menu and Search buttons below the screen but instead you get an unmarked circular Back button, while what was clearly intended as a volume control has been reassigned to Home and Menu duties. That leaves no hardware volume controls, meaning you have to exit an app and restart it to change volume.

50% Kogan Agora HD Mini 3G Android tablet
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Agora HD Mini is poorly constructed and delivers an outdated version of Android on a primitive screen. However, equipped with 3G connectivity and priced at $199, it radically undercuts its rivals and practically caters to an audience unopposed. For those in need of a cheap 3G tablet, then the Agora HD Mini merits consideration.

:

Mediatek:

MT8389:

Quad-core ARM SoC for tablets with an integrated PowerVR SGX 544 graphics card.


7.9:

This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.4 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.

0.4 kg:


65.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
