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The Agora HD Mini is poorly constructed and delivers an outdated version of Android on a primitive screen.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.


7.0: This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.

0.4 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

0.4 kg:


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